Through automation and centralized tracking, the Campus Help Center module simplifies campus operations, minimizing manual errors and reducing administrative burden.

With CollPoll, institutions can confidently navigate the complexities of grievance redressal and create a culture of transparency, accountability, and continuous improvement.
This blog explores CollPoll’s innovative approach to handling grievances and complaints and highlights the recent regulations introduced by the University Grants Commission (UGC) to further enhance students’ grievance redressal mechanisms.
UGC Regulations for Students’ Grievance Redressal
Recognizing the importance of effective grievance redressal, the UGC has introduced new regulations to strengthen the processes at higher educational institutions. The University Grants Commission (Redressal of Grievances of Students) Regulations, 2023, superseding the previous regulations of 2019, have been aligned with the principles of the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020.
The new regulations mandate the establishment of Students’ Grievances Redressal Committees (SGRC) at all higher educational institutions. These committees are responsible for addressing complaints raised by students and ensuring their prompt resolution. Additionally, the regulations emphasize the appointment of representatives from marginalized groups, such as Scheduled Castes (SC), Scheduled Tribes (ST), Other Backward Classes (OBC), and women, as either chairpersons or members of the grievance redressal committees. This provision aims to provide equal opportunities for all students and prevent any form of discrimination.
