Gov’t plans to fuse GLC Mumbai into a South Mumbai cluster university with Elphinstone, Science, BEd colleges

GLC Mumbai may soon cease to be a standalone law college, if Maharashtra follows through on its plan to fuse it with at least three other South Mumbai-based state colleges to form a new cluster university in South Mumbai.

In a report by the Times of India, the government will soon issue a notification to merge GLC with the Institute of Science, Elphinstone College and Government BEd College.

However, the central government has rejected the scheme to fuse HR, KC and Bombay Teacher’s training colleges into one cluster university, and to combine several colleges of the Rayat Shikshan Sanstha.

But a state government official told TOI that Maharashtra would still be going ahead with it, as a central Act is not needed to implement it because all the fused colleges were government colleges.
