UGC (University Grants Commission) has sent a letter to the education ministry stating that private universities cannot run outer campus, as it violates the rules of 'Private University Act 2010'.
Hereby, the UGC has recommended the ministry to take legal action against authority of Prime University's Uttara campus for establishing outer campuses in different parts of the city.
It was noticed that the authorities of Prime University's Mirpur campus and Prime University Uttara campus are two separate entities operating under the same name.
As a result in 2012, UGC had told the education ministry that Uttara campus was illegal and should be shut down. However, the high court stayed the order and stalled the final decision.
The registrar of Prime University's Uttara campus Mohammad Shah Alam, told media that they had established campuses in different parts of the city, they were not outer campuses.
He further added "We cannot accommodate all the students and teachers in the Uttara campus and so, we have established campuses in some other parts of the city. They are mainly additional campuses and are not against the Private University Act 2010."
He in-fact urged that they had informed UGC about establishing these campuses.
