Autonomy means ‘self-norm’ or self-determination. It basically refers to providing freedom to all people who are responsible for the execution of the job itself. A paradigm is a new way of looking or thinking about something, which is a framework containing the basic assumptions, ways of thinking, and methodology that are commonly accepted by members of a community. On the other hand, discourse is formal and orderly and usually extended expression of thought on a subject. Academic autonomy has already been materialized in selected colleges throughout the state and many more colleges are on the verge of getting autonomy. Kerala maintained a reluctant attitude in implementing autonomy in the past but suddenly, a paradigm shift is noticeable which makes the study further interesting.
