Centre would issue notices to deemed universities: Sibal
PRESS TRUST OF INDIA
New Delhi, Jan 11: HRD Minister Kapil Sibal today said the Centre will issue show-cause notices to all deemed universities and take a decision on each case within a given timeframe.
“Now that the Supreme Court has asked us, we will be issuing show-cause notices to each one of them and within the timeframe mentioned in the report we will decide on each and every individual case,” Sibal told reporters here.
Forty-four deemed universities under a cloud for lacking appropriate academic infrastructure standards today received a shot in the arm with the Centre assuring the Supreme Court that it would have a re-look on the decision to derecognise them.
Attorney General G E Vahanvati gave the undertaking to a bench of justices Dalveer Bhandari and Deepak Verma that the government would reconsider its earlier decision and send fresh individual notices, grant personal hearing and opportunity to make further representation.
Sibal insisted that the government was yet to take any decision in the matter.
“Government has not decided anything yet. There was an Expert Committee report. In principle, we agree with the expert committee report,” he said.
