Students' Federation Of India(SFI) is against the Centre's decision to replace the University Grants Commission(UGC) with the Higher Education Commission of India (HECI) by repealing the UGC Act, 1951.The draft Act proposed to replace the UGC with the HECI is a violation of the right of the State government and against the spirit of the Constitution.The HRD ministry taking over the role of funding will lead "to more direct interference of the central government". 

"Presently, the government's funding for public higher education is distributed through the UGC, an autonomous body under the HRD ministry. UGC has an academic background which enables it to distribute funds according to the need of educational institutions but the ministry doesn't have such academic background. This is contrary to one of the goals of the proposed commission of decreasing the government interference in education institutions." 

"Instead of replacing UCG with a body with same problems, SFI demands that the UGC and its working should be improved and it should be made more democratic and transparent "
