The Cabinet decided to amend the UP State University Act, 1973, to this effect, an official release said.

The Cabinet also decided to amend sections 2, 37 and 49 of the act, which authorise university chancellors to accord affiliation to curriculum run by National Level Independent (Autonomous) Institutions for a limited period on certain terms and conditions.
