Degrees Not Awarded to SPA and IIITDM-K students

The Union HRD Minister Smt. Smriti Irani stated in a written reply to a reply to a Lok Sabha question yesterday that the Government is aware that students of School of Planning and Architecture (SPA), Bhopal, SPA, Vijayawada and Indian Institute of Information Technology Design and Manufacturing (IIITD&M), Kancheepuram have not been awarded degrees.

The School of Planning and Architecture (SPA) Bhopal and SPA Vijayawada was set up in the year 2008-2009.

Indian Institute of Information Technology Design and Manufacturing (IIITD&M), Kancheepuram was set up in the year 2007.

Around 692 students who graduated from these institutes till 2014 have to be conferred degrees. To confer degree to graduates, the Institute has to be so authorised under an Act of the Parliament or should be declared a Deemed to be University by UGC under Section 3 of the UGC Act, 1956. The Ministry has initiated the process of declaring these Institutes as "Institutes of National Importance" through an act of the Parliament.

Efforts are also afoot to declare SPA Bhopal & SPA Vijayawada as Off-Campus centres of SPA Delhi and Indian Institute of Information Technology Design and Manufacturing (IIITD&M), Kancheepuram as off campus centre of IIIT, Gwalior so that the degree could be awarded to the students who have graduated from these institutes.
