Supreme Court asks it to submit the report by July 31
The Supreme Court on Monday gave the University Grants Commission the go-ahead for conducting a fresh inspection of 41 deemed universities which were sought to be de-recognised on the basis of the Tandon Committee report.
A Bench of Justices K.S. Radhakrishnan and Vikramajit Sen, after hearing counsel Rakesh Diwedi, said the UGC had regulatory powers to conduct a fresh inspection and directed it to submit its report by July 31.
Opposing re-inspection, Additional Solicitor-General Indira Jaising said the UGC could use three earlier reports — of the Tandon panel, the committee of officers and the UGC report itself — to take a decision.
