University Grants Commission
The UGC, was established in 1956 as a statutory body of the Government of India through an Act of Parliament for the coordination, determination and maintenance of standards of university education in India. In order to ensure effective region-wise coverage throughout the country, the UGC has decentralised its operations by setting up six regional centres at Pune, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Bhopal, Guwahati and Bangalore. The head office of the UGC is located at Bahadur Shah Zafar Marg in New Delhi, with two additional bureaus operating from 35, Feroze Shah Road and the South Campus of University of Delhi as well.
Contents of 27 PG MOOCs offered in SWAYAM have been translated into 8 Indian languages (Hindi, Gujarati, Marathi, Bangla, Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam, Tamil).
