The meeting comes a month after the suicide of Dalit scholar Rohith Vemula in the Hyderabad Central University triggered an uproar across the country and opposition parties attacked the government over it.

The HRD ministry has in recent times launched several ambitious initiatives in higher education sector including working towards a National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF), a GIAN programme for attracting foreign faculty and is also working to set up six new IITs.
