Christ University is now just 'Christ' after UGC's directive

Christ University is now just 'Christ' after UGC's directive

They said the public associates these institutions with the word "university" and any attempt to strip them of the tag would create problems.

Three educational institutions in Karnataka - two of which are in Bengaluru - have dropped the word "university" from their name after they were pulled up by the University Grants Commission (UGC) for using the word in violation of the UGC Act, 1956. The institute was earlier called the Symbiosis International University. Other institutes are: Yenepoya University, Jain University, Maharishi Markandeshwar University and Lingaya's University.

A notice was issued to seven universities on Wednesday stating that "a last chance was given to the Institution Deemed to be University to immediately discontinue with the name of the Deemed to be University using the word "University" and submit an alternative proposal".

"The deemed to be universities had time until today to drop the word "university" and change their names".

"I am surprised to note that the Supreme Court feels that the deemed Universities are unregulated, which is not the case, in fact they are the most regulated controlled segment", said Ravi Bhardwaj, a lawyer who has represented deemed universities in court.

In its previous order, the court said, "It has come to our notice that many institutions, conferred status of "deemed to be universities" are using the word "university", which in our view is opposed to the spirit of Section 23 of the UGC Act".

On November 29, 2017, UGC wrote to the erring institutions: "It has been observed that inspite of directions from Supreme Court and UGC, the deemed to be university is still using the word "university" with its name".

Christ University has proposed to change its name to 'Christ (Deemed to be University)'.

Citing the letter to be "urgent" the Commission has allowed 15 days to the Universities to abide to the rule.

"It has taken us time because we are going through an approval process to change the name back to Teri School of Advanced Studies. We will implement it soon", an official from the vice-chancellor's office said.
