  1. In stead of continuing the policy of excluding some journals from CARE list, there should be a stringent alternative policy to encourage the listed journals to maintain the prescribed standard. Otherwise, the scholars have to face lots of problems beyond their anticipation. Hope, the competent authority shall consider this matter seriously. Myself I published one article in a CARE listed journal in 2020, but it no longer exists in the April 2021 updated list. Was it my guilt?
