The University Grants Commission (UGC) on Wednesday announced continuing all its existing schemes funded under the 12th Five-Year Plan, for another year.

In a public notice, the UGC said the resolution to continue all its existing plan schemes in the new financial year 2017-2018 was taken at its meeting on Tuesday. 

"However, these schemes will be reviewed by the UGC," it said. 

The UGC notice comes days after several faculty members of three centres at the Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS) were told that March 31 could be their last working day.
