Who introduced the Indian University Act ?
George Nathaniel Curzon (11 January 1859-20 March 1925) was an English man. He was served as British Viceroy of India from 1899 to 1905. Curzon’s glorious administrative record was largely marred by two controversial policies. One was the education policy illustrated by the Universities Act, 1904.
The Act aimed at reforming the University of Calcutta and its relations with other educational institutions. So long the Calcutta University had been operating only as an examining and affiliating body without any educational agenda of its own.
