Deemed universities are not functioning in a transparent manner: Deb

Odisha government is not happy with the functioning of deemed universities of the state. As a matter of fact, both, government and deemed varsities are on a collision course over the letter's alleged autocratic functioning.

Highlighting his concern, minister of technical education, Pratap Keshari Deb says "the deemed varsities are not functioning in a transparent manner and the state has not control over them."

Deb was quick to bounce on a question put up by a member Karendra Majhi, Deb replied "the state only give the no objection certificate to an institution to apply for deemed university tag to the center. Such institution functions as autonomous bodies under the UGC Act. The center supervises their functioning. After receiving complaints against the deemed universities we have forwarded those to the Center requesting action."

He further added "there is no transparency in the mode of admissions and fee of these campuses. When colleges under Biju Patnaik University of Technology (BPUT) were admitting students for engineering through Odisha Joint Entrance Examination (OJEE) till the last year, the deemed universities had declined to be a part of it."

"But now, deemed universities cant beat around the bushes and decline the admissions, as the state has decided to join the national level entrance from 2014 (JEE Main). The state government has requested the Center to bring universities under it," deb stated further.
