As a result of this, heads of many deemed universities had gathered in a meeting in Chennai city on Tuesday in order to discuss about the UGC regulations and their presumptions. Other officials from institutions that are a part of the Educational Promotion Society of India (EPSI) also participated in the event.
They said "The regulation violated on the Universities rights to make its decisions".
The Chancellor of VIT University Dr. G.Viswanathan alleged the Union Government to wothdraw the UGC Regulations for Deemed Universities 2010.
He further said that this was destructive to the University system. "The guideline was a reverting step that interfered with the autonomy and freedom of Deemed Universities in the Country".
"In case if the UGC wants to enforce the Guidelines, they can do so for the institutions begun after 2010 and not for the older ones. O rule can be enforced in a reverting way", he added.
Indicating that the Deemed Universities all over India had already approached the country's high courts, which has stayed the guideline, he said it was time for UGC to review its regulations and withdrawn them.
Here is what Ved Prakash, Chairman of UGC had said when he announced that all the Universities must follow Admission norms..
Private universities have a significant role to play in the education field in India. "Private universities must come up, as the state does not have enough resources to meet the needs of youths," he said.
However, he cautioned private institutions not to commercialize higher studies sector. Prakash said, "Private institutions should not see the UGC as an adversary. We have to work together. A lot of high quality education has come from private universities in India. Private universities have also established certain benchmarks in the country,"
