The University Grants Commission has asked higher education institutions to consume recycled paper and not make various different demands of different kinds of paper in order to introduce eco-friendly practices.

The letter sent by UGC to institutions read, “Higher education institutes are requested to promote procurement of recycled paper and avoid incorporating restrictive condition, such as insisting on paper made of wood, bamboo or agro-based pulp that are virgin pulp, in tenders for procurement of writing and printing paper,” the commission said.

It was “essential to reduce the environmental load” and shift to “eco-friendly goods”, it said.

Earlier this month, UGC released a list of 24 fake universities, to whom they sent legal notices to only two of them, according to the IANS, a written reply was received on Thursday by Satya Pal Singh, Minister of State for Human Resource Development.
