The higher education in India is poised on an agenda of change towards the movement from Credit Based Choice System (CBCS) to National Academic Credit Bank (NACB) as proposed by the UGC. If the Union government is able to formulate a policy, this will mark the beginning of a new phase in the Indian Higher Education System. This would allow the students to pursue their higher education from different universities and earn a degree from another university. Credit transfers are prevalent in many countries and its success is ensured by the creation of an online repository of students looking for potential credit transfer opportunities. Though it requires a vast amount of ground work and pathways created, once implemented, the NAC Bank would help students plan their objectives and their pace. In this paper, we study the modus operandi as the scheme and its existence in different countries and its implications on the student fraternity.
