Contents of this Page


Over the years, the University Grants Commission (UGC) has been encouraging well-performing universities and colleges in the country to strive for excellence in their chosen areas of academic and research work. In this strategy, the UGC has been providing substantial financial support to selected universities and colleges through various schemes, to enable them to reach the world-class level and serve as a benchmark for other institutions in the country.

The UGC came out with another initiative in the form of a Scheme named “Centre with Potential for Excellence in a Particular Area (CPEPA)”. This initiative was continued in the X and XI Plan periods as well.

The CPEPA Scheme focuses on supporting the development of inter-and/or multi-disciplinary areas and specific research projects in these areas at the selected university. In order to encourage institutions to develop islands of excellence in different areas, the Commission has decided to continue the scheme of CPEPA.

It stands out as a unique attempt to foster activities that are lacking to a great extent among the practitioners of higher education and research in the country.

On being selected under the Scheme, the universities will be required to take up academic, research and other activities in one or more inter- and/or multidisciplinary areas of contemporary significance in fields like physical/ chemical/ biological/ social sciences and humanities. The UGC proposes to identify up to 50 Centres, including the existing ones, from all over the country for financial support under the Scheme during the XII Plan period.
