The UGC also directed for proper execution of vice chancellors' responsibilities, UGC's approval before opening a new department and position and following university rules while giving employment and promotion.
A press release was issued by the UGC in this connection.
A letter in this regard has been sent to the vice-chancellors of all public universities, according to the press release signed by Dr Shamsul Arefin, director of communication and information rights department of UGC.
The move came two days after President M Abdul Hamid had expressed concern over the evening courses in public universities.
A section of teachers had turned university into a business institution disrupting its overall academic environment, the President told the 52nd Convocation of Dhaka University (DU) on December 9.
