UGC wakes up to Deemed Universities' abuses

After Chennai High Court order asking AICTE and UGC to undertake joint inspection of Deemed Universities' precincts, UGC has written a letter to all the DUs asking for an "undertaking that no course will be started without its [UGC's] nod".

I think, the wording has to be stricter than this. DUs should be threatened with dire action if any violation is found - such as immediate revoking of DU status and relegation to a mere college status under respective local Universities.

In 2005, UGC had sent out a similar letter to DUs, but out of 103 DUs, only 40 or so seem to have written back to UGC. DUs will continue to flout the norms, unless some are punished severely and others are told to behave.
