The University Grant Commission on 27th May issued a notification directing 127 educational institutes to prohibit from using the term ‘University’ in their names.

Furthermore, the institutes have been told not to use the term ‘University’ in their official websites, e-mails, envelopes, communications, hoarding, promotional advertisements,  website addresses, etc. I any institute fails to do so, strict action will be taken against them by the UGC under UGC Regulations 2019.

The notice further said that these institutions can add the term ‘Deemed to be University’ at the end of their names.

 

The University Grant Commission (UGC) recently found that many institutions who have been granted to use the term ‘Deemed to be University ‘ have been using the term ‘University’ at the end of their names. This action of the deemed to be Universities is against the spirit of Sec 23 of the UGC act. The notifications say that such Universities should stop such practices. 

Adding the order of Supreme Court, the notification asserted that only a University established or incorporated by or under a central act, a provincial act or a state act should be authorized to use the term ‘University’ with its name in any manner and no other institution whether it’s a corporate body or not should be entitled to use the term ‘University’ with it.

 

What is meant by Deemed University?

According to the UGC guidelines, a ‘Deemed University’ or ‘Deemed to be University’ is an institute of higher education that receives the status of sovereignty under the Ministry of Human Resource Development from the department of higher education.

 

The Deemed University receives the autonomy which means that the institution can on its own decide its courses, syllabus, fee structure, and admission process as it holds the authority to do so. If the institution prevails to perform well, it can be promoted and can further receive the status of the University.

Another kind of University comprises State-run, Private or Central Universities.
