DALRRD have promised to finalise migration with no luck we therefore request the committee to assist us in prioritising the matter so that all the plans are implemented to students of all agricultural colleges. The committee should make sure that the issue of migration is in DHET Annual Performance Plan with clear milestones. The committee should call DALRRD and DHET to account about progress to date and their plan s going forward. It is our wish to see migration happening in the next academic year so that student from disadvantage background can have access to quality education and also improve their wellbeing.
