Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy instructed the authorities to focus on maintaining standards in the colleges with good internet provision. 

He asked them not to compromise on colleges that do not meet the standards, as the reputation of the universities will be damaged. If any colleges are not up to the mark, identify issues and bring them to the management’s attention and give them time to improve, he said and ordered the officials not to give permissions to those institutions that do not follow standards.

Further, the CM directed the authorities to discuss with each Vice Chancellor every week on the issues of the universities and the issues discussed in those meetings should be brought to his attention. He said that an action plan for the development of the universities should be designed for the next three years, upgrading the NAAC rating. 

Also, he directed the officials to prepare an action plan for degree colleges across the State, ensuring that each assembly constituency has one degree college.

The Chief Minister said there is no compulsion in handing over the aided educational institutions to government. The conditions in most institutions are deteriorating without proper infrastructure or staff and thus the government provided an opportunity for such institutions to handover and the government will manage the respective institutions.

With regard to Medical Education, the Chief Minister said that the government is setting up 16 new medical colleges, where currently only 11 colleges are functioning. He said that steps are being taken to make those colleges self-sufficient and suggested to collaborate for research studies to connect with local industries.

As part of the review meeting, Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy unveiled the English Communication Workbook and Textbooks, along with the  APSCHE podcast.
The review meeting was attended by Education Minister Adimulapu Suresh, Higher Education Special Secretary Satish Chandra, APSCHE Chairman K Hemachandrareddy, College Education Commissioner Pola Bhaskar, Vice Chancellors of various universities and other senior officials.
