Unrest spreads in Tamil Nadu deemed universities

The unrest amongst the students of the deemed universities in Tamil Nadu, whose derecognition has been sought, spread Wednesday with protests being held in several of them.

The central government Monday filed an affidavit in the Supreme Court seeking derecognition of 44 institutions, of which 16 are in Tamil Nadu.        

Students of Ponnaiyah Ramajayam Institute of Science and Technology (PRIST) University in Thanjavur, Vels University near here and Vinayaka Mission in Salem protested on their college premises Wednesday.        

Students of PRIST University went on rampage, damaging property and also attempted to prevent traffic on the Thanjavur-Trichi highway.        

The police chased away the protestors and the PRIEST University declared indefinite closure of the institution. Students staying in the hostel were asked to vacate the premises immediately.        

Students of Vels University and Vinayaka Missions University in Salem also protested.        

Human Resource Development Minister Kapil Sibal Tuesday said in New Delhi the concept of deemed universities will be abolished in India. However, he requested the students not to panic and assured them that they will get a university degree even if the deemed university status is cancelled.        

The government would permit the deemed universities to get themselves affiliated to another university as a normal college.        

The violent protests are seen as a result of the pent-up anger of the students who are not treated properly and subjected to a strict regime.        

Meanwhile, vice-chancellors of the deemed universities are meeting in Chennai to chalk out their future course of action.

  1. this is a ridiculous decision from the HRD ministry. i feel extremely upset over the fact that a university which is trying its level best in imparting quality education to its students has come under the hammer of the so called MHRD.siksha-o-anusandhan univ. bhubaneswar has fallen victim to this harsh developement.infact the faculty here is totally devoted .infrastructure is not at all a measure of excellence.sooner or later it is going to become one of the topmost univ. in india.FIRSTLY ASK THE STUDENTS WHETHER THEY ARE SATISFIED WITH THEIR UNIVERSITY OR NOT…….
    government cant take the decisions on their own……
    they should realise that the future of the ongoing batches are in their hands……….the criteria for derecognition is based on vague & baseless guidelines as i feel my college is not at all unfit in any way.this decision requires proper assessment and rectification as the future of so many students is at stake.hence it is a sincere request from all the students of siksha-o-anusandhan univ. bbsr to consider our case so that we continue as a deemed univ.
