To get ‘deemed-to-be university’ status, a University needs to be 20 Years old – UGC – To improve the learning and employability of students, UGC is set to specify some new eligibility rules for ‘deemed-to-be university’ status. To ensure the quality education in India, the UGC introduced new regulations in the eligibility criteria of ‘Deemed to be university’. First of all, the age of the university/institute should be at least 20 years. Apart from this, the university should have 3.26 CGPA authorized by NBA (National Board of Accreditation).
The new circular issued by UGC sets various criteria for the deemed university status making it a great move and they are:-
- Institute should be ranked in the top 50 institutes in any category or in the top 100 overall ranking by NIRF.
- The teacher to student ratio should be at least 1:20.
- The number of teachers in the institute should not be less than 100 and that of students should be at least 20,000.
- A detailed project report have to be submitted by the institute with 15 years strategic vision plan and 5 years implementation plan.
Moreover, a selection committee is mandatory for the institute which will ensure all the guidelines are being followed by the institute.
