You heard it right  ! Leading educational Institutes like Symbiosis, Manipal, Teri University might loose their status if they fail to comply University Grant Commission directions to drop “university” from their names.

They have been issued warning by UGC to remove the name where each of these universities have thousands of students enrolled. If not the consequences might be too worse as their declaration also might be cancelled.

In a circular issued by UGC on November 10, as many as 123 education facilities of higher education which are deemed to be universities to stop using the word ‘university’ in their names. In the two notices issued by UGC, the first listed Pune’s Symbiosis International University, the Bengaluru-based Christ University and Jain University asking them to change their names. The second notice had Manipal University, Delhi’s Teri University, KLE University in Belagavi and 19 other institutes. Teri, which was earlier known as Teri School of Advanced Studies will revert back to the previous name. Even, Manipal has also decided to comply with  UGC and would name Manipal Academy of Higher Education.

However the education facilities said that they were taking time as they had to go through name approval process emphasising that their status as deemed to be universities has not changed.
