The commission is currently making amendments to the UGC Regulations, 2016. The rule mandated PhD scholars to publish at least one research paper in a UGC refereed/peer reviewed journal before the submission of the dissertation/thesis for adjudication.

The commission will allow higher education institutions to formulate their own rules and regulations on the matter.
