New Delhi, Jan 18 – The central government Monday told the Supreme Court that it was all set to divest 44 universities of their special ‘deemed university’ status as they were being run as ‘family fiefdoms’ rather than institutions of academic excellence.

Appearing for the central government, Solicitor General Gopal Subramanium made this submission to a bench of Justice Dalveer Bhandari and Justice Mukundkam Sharma, during the hearing of a 2006 lawsuit, questioning the misuse of the deemed university status by glut of educational shops.

Subramanium also told the bench that the government, however, has decided to let these universities revert back to become affiliated colleges of their original universities.

This is to avoid jeopardising the career of nearly 200,000 students studying in these institutions across 13 states, he told the court.

In an affidavit filed in the court, the union human resource development ministry said that the government has also accepted the recommendations made by high-powered P.N. Tandon committee, formed to probe the conditions of the deemed universities across the country.

‘The Review Committee came across several aberrations in the functioning of some of the institutions deemed to be universities. It found undesirable management architecture where families rather than professional academics controlled the functioning of institutions,’ the affidavit said.

According to the affidavit, most of the 44 deemed universities, failing to maintain their high standard of academic excellence, were offering post-graduate and undergraduate courses that are ‘fragmented with concocted nomenclatures’ and seats ‘disproportionately’ increased beyond the actual intake capacity.

The bench, during an earlier hearing in July last year had questioned the need for having deemed universities in the country in wake of their mushrooming growth amid complaints that instead of imparting quality education, they have been fleecing students by commercialising it.

‘Why deemed university at all? Don’t you think the status of deemed university should be abolished in all the states?’ the bench had asked, while directing the centre to file a detailed affidavit on the deemed universities and their conditions in the country.

The bench adjourned the matter after a brief perusal of the affidavit.

The decision to move the apex court follows a government study on 126 deemed universities across the country.

While 38 deemed universities were found to doing a good job , 44 others have been given three years to improve.

The remaining 44 were found completely unfit.

New Delhi: The Centre on Monday told the Supreme Court that 44 institutions including the Bharath Institute of Higher Education and Research, Chennai, founded by Union Minister S. Jagathrakshakan, would lose the deemed university status as they did not meet the standards.

(After becoming Minister, Mr. Jagathrakshakan has not been associated with the management of the Balaji Dental College and Hospital, the Balaji Medical College and Hospital, the Bharat Institute of Science and Technology, the Bharat College of Nursing, the Bharat College of Physiotherapy, and the Sri Lakshmi Narayana Institute of Medical Sciences, Puducherry.)

Students won’t suffer:
The Centre, however, made it clear that an estimated 1,19,363 students enrolled in these 44 institutions at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels, in addition to 2,124 students doing research in M.Phil and Ph.D. programmes and 74,808 students pursuing distance education programmes, would continue their studies as the colleges would continue to be affiliated to the universities to which they were earlier affiliated.

This information was given before a Bench of Justices Dalveer Bhandari and A.K. Patnaik, hearing a petition filed by advocate Viplav Sharma seeking regulation of deemed universities.

The bulk of the 44 institutions are in Tamil Nadu:

St. Peter’s Engineering College, Avadi;
the Noorul Islam College of Engineering, Kumaracoil, Thuckalay;
the Meenakshi Medical College and Research Institute, Kancheepuram, and other institutions run by this university;
the Chettinad Hospital and Research Institute, Padur, the Chettinad College of Nursing;
the Saveetha Dental College and Hospital;
the Saveetha Medical College and Hospital and other institutions;
the Arulmigu Kalasalingam College of Engineering, Virudhunagar;
the Periyar Maniammai College of Technology, Thanjavur; the Academy of Maritime Education and Research, Chennai;
Vel’s Institute of Science, Technology and Advanced Studies, Chennai;
the Vel Tech Engineering College;
the Karpagam Academy of Higher Education, Pollachi;
Vinayaka Mission’s Research Foundation, Salem, and the Balaji Vidyapeeth, Puducherry.

Show-cause to MGR institute
In another case before a Bench of Chief Justice K.G. Balakrishnan and Justices R.V. Raveendran and Deepak Verma, Solicitor-General Gopal Subramaniam said the Dr. MGR Educational and Research Institute running the Thai Moogambigai Dental College and Hospital and the Dr. MGR Engineering College, Chennai, was among the 44 institutions to which notices would be issued asking them to show cause why the deemed university status should not be cancelled.

The ACS Medical College, which admitted students in 2008-2009 and 2009-2010, would not be affiliated to the deemed university as the Human Resource Development Ministry decided not to accept the recommendation of the University Grants Commission.

The Bench disposed of the matter asking the Centre to pass appropriate orders within four weeks in the light of the UGC recommendations and other considerations.

Several aberrations
The Centre’s affidavit said a review committee, headed by Prof. P.N. Tandon, came across several aberrations in the functioning of some of the deemed universities. It found an undesirable management architecture in which families rather than professional academics controlled the institutions.

The 44 institutions that lost deemed status are:

Its bizarre. It should be the government's responsibility to check before they give them the DEEMED University tag. Taking it away is only putting the students future into jeopardy.
