Yes, there is a good news that Human Resources and Development Ministry has adopted a soft corner for the Deemed Universities in the country. In the past the govt was very tough towards the private universities deemed to be.
The students doing various courses through Deemed Universities especially from the Off Campus of Deemed universities were always confused regarding the validity of the courses. Now the University Grants Commission ( UGC ) has given nod to open multiple centres across the country.
HRD has made a great change in the Rule 2010. As per the new rules after the consent from the MHRD, the Private-run deemed universities can start maximum of six centres. There is no limit to the number of off-campus branches in the case of Govt-run off campus branches. Therefore almost all the deemed universities stand good chances of having been approved along with their courses.
Total No of Deemed universities in the country –
There are One Hundred and Twenty Deemed Universities in the country. Out of these universities 37 are Govt-run and 11 are govt funded. The other are privately run institutions.
