Q. With reference to Glue Grant Scheme, consider the following statements:
1. Under the Scheme, institutions in the same state would be encouraged to share resources and equipment.
2. A student from one university can attend the classes from other universities in the city.
Which of the statements given above is/are correct?

[A] 1 only

[B] 2 only

[C] Both 1 and 2

[D] Neither 1 nor 2

Answer: B
  • Under the Glue Grant Scheme, institutions in the same city would be encouraged to share resources, equipment and even allow their students to take classes from each other. (Statement 1 is incorrect) 
  • Ultimately, faculty will be able to design joint courses and a Delhi University (DU) student will be able to take a few classes at IIT-Delhi or vice versa. (Statement 2 is correct). This also means that institutions need not duplicate work by developing the same capacities, but would be able to build on each other’s expertise.
