Impacted wisdom of the UGC

The UGC has published a draft regulation (which they will probably adopt with minor modifications) regarding hiring and promotions of college and university teachers. There is an unreasonable emphasis on the impact factor of publications. And the impact factors have been categorized into various subjects in an intellectually-challenged manner. How does biology/medicine, with impact factors typically between 10 and 40, compare with mathematics, between 0.5 and 2?

My criticism of the impact factor itself is here.
