UGC asks 123 deemed varsities to drop ‘university’ from names;Here is the list

In a letter dated November 10 issued by the University Grant Commission has asked 123 Deemed-to-be-Universities to discontinue the word ‘University’ from their names. Institutes may use the phrase “Deemed to be University” within parenthesis instead of the  word university.

The use of word ‘University’ by Deemed-to-be universities is in violation of the Section 23 of the UGC Act, cites the Supreme Court order dated November 3, 2017. The court has asked Deemed to be Universities to stop using the word within one month of the issue of the Court order.

Letter has been sent to Delhi based institutions  like Indian Agricultural Research Institute (Pusa), Indian Institute of Foreign Trade, Institute of Liver and Biliary Sciences and Jamia Hamdard.
