New Delhi, Jan 19: Union HRD minister Kapil Sibal on Tuesday, Jan 19, said that the concept of deemed universities will be abolished in India.
Sibal's statement comes a day after the government moved an affidavit in the Supreme Court seeking de-recognition of 44 such institutions.
He said, "The concept of deemed universities from the country will go in the near future and this is part of the reform process. We are putting in place the required legislations."
Kapil Sibal emphasized students in deemed universities will not suffer.
"Technically, we haven't de-recognised any deemed university. We have moved the Supreme Court with an affidavit and a report by the expert committee on deemed universities. Let me assure, no student will suffer," Sibal said.
"We are going to take care of all students. And government's intention is not to put any student in problem. All students will get a university degree," the minister assured.
