Will frame criteria on recognition of pvt varsities: Centre to SC

Centre on Monday told the Supreme Court that it has taken a decision to frame “criteria” to deal with the issue of recognition of private universities across the country after consulting with all stakeholders, including UGC.

“The Union of India has taken a decision that the proper criteria or guidelines should be laid down after consulting all the stakeholders so that the issue is settled once and for all,” the counsel, appearing for Ministry of Human Resources Development, told a bench of justices Dipak Misra and Vikramjit Sen.

Additional Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, who represented the HRD Ministry, said that the Centre is planning to consult bodies like UGC and AICTE and the criteria can be laid down within three months. Meanwhile, the bench asked the Centre to apprise it of steps taken on the UGC report relating to inspection carried out on 41 deemed universities.
