Sambalpur: Union Minister Veerappa Moily today said there was a need for setting up higher standards to be enforced by professional, scientific and research bodies as well as by the proposed National Council for Higher Education and Research.

The Law Minister, addressing the convocation of Sambalpur University, asked all universities and institutions of higher learning and research to gear up to face challenges within the country and abroad.

He said globalisation is a relevant issue for higher education as India was a founder member of the World Trade Organisation and has undertaken certain obligations.

Describing the General Agreement on Trade in Services (GATS), a pact within the WTO, as an important development, he said developing common curriculum, evaluation standards, recognition of credits and grades, professional accreditation and periodic assessment of standards were likely to impact higher education too.
