Govt for SC action on deemed universities

The government has accepted the recommendations of an expert committee, which has found 44 deemed universities unfit for this status, but has left it to the Supreme Court for appropriate course of action against them

The Indian government on Tuesday said that it has accepted the recommendations of an expert committee, which has found 44 deemed universities unfit for this status, but left it to the Supreme Court for appropriate course of action against them, reports PTI.

"The government has accepted the findings of the expert committee formed to review the functioning of the deemed universities and submitted its findings to the Supreme Court, which will decide the course of action to be taken," human resources development minister Kapil Sibal told reporters.

He said that no deemed university has been derecognised so far.

"The Supreme Court will decide the course of action. We will take care of all the students (of the deemed universities). Not a single student will be adversely affected. Students of deemed universities will get a university degree," he said.

An expert committee headed by PN Tandon has reviewed the functioning of 126 of the 130 deemed universities. It has found 44 deemed universities unworthy for this status.

Asked whether the unfit 44 deemed universities would be reverted back to the status of colleges, Mr Sibal said, "I do not want to pre-empt what the Supreme Court will decide."

The matter will come before the Supreme Court on 25th January.

    Actually, only Money plays when it comes to recognition and de-recognition! India is 80% corrupt and almost tops the list in corruption. Just WAIT & WATCH. Out of these 44 universities, only few (3 or 4) will be de-recognised. Its the time to protest in public than in internet. Visit colleges and ask the students to join hands and boycott the colleges and support NOT to de-recognise. 1 month protest will make your future strong. why not take the desicion NOW? JOIN HANDS FRIENDS.
