The Council also considered introduction of several new graduate, postgraduate Diploma, Diploma and certificate courses through distance education. Among the courses to be introduced are Bachelor’s course, P.G. Diploma, Diploma and certificate course in naturopathy and yogic sciences, one-year PG Diploma in enterprise computing, one-year PG Diploma in remote infrastructure management and a Diploma in airhostess and aviation hospitality.

Members also introduced regulations and the syllabus for the first-year courses of Master of Social Work, Bachelor of Social Work, B.Sc. in Visual Communication, Electronic Media and Journalism under the Choice Based Credit System.
