University Grants Commission in the year 2010, has notified University Grants Commission (Institutions Deemed to be Universities) Regulation 2010, which was made applicable to prospective as well as existing Deemed Universities.
Several Deemed Universities had challenged the provisions of the University Grants Commission (Institutions Deemed to be Universities) Regulations, 2010 in different High Courts in India. Manipal, Siddartha, KLE, BLDE, Devaraj Urs, Yenepoya and Symbiosis had challenged the University Grants Commission (Institutions Deemed to be Universities) Regulation 2010 before Hon’ble Karnataka High Court
The High Court of Karnataka in its judgement delivered on Thursday University Grants Commission (Institutions Deemed to be Universities) Regulation 2010 as unconstitutional and invalid, more particularly provisions, which are relating to governance system, admission and fee structure and opening of campuses of deemed-to-be universities in the country.
The High Court also pointed out that it was not the UGC that authored the regulation but the Ministry concerned and by such an action, the UGC had abdicated its discretion to frame regulations, and hence the regulation was also in violation of Section 26 of the UGC Act
The High Court also quashed the circular issued by the UGC in 2010-11 asking all existing deemed-to-be universities to comply with the new regulation.
