The apex body of the UGC asked the institute not to dissect the animals for study for life science in the colleges. From today on words No animal from any species shall be dissected either by students or teacher in the class room for any of the purpose.

In 2001 UGC partially banned the dissection of the animals, Only teachers are allowed for the dissection and student allowed to watch and post Graduate students are allowed to dissect the animal for the education purpose only.

As per the UGC many of the animals used for the dissection were caught from their natural habitats.Due to this there is an imbalance of the population of the frogs. Most of the species are not found due to unavailability of the species.
