Each Committee comprised of 5 (five) to 20 (twenty) members, consisting of academics and nominees of the relevant statutory councils.

These Expert Committees conducted on-site inspections and have pointed out that 7 such institutions are lacking in infrastructure and 17 of them in faculty positions.

  1. The research component is missing in deemed to be universities. The management is interested in fee hike and increasing number of seats just to multiply profit. The status of deemed to be universities should be given on basis of quality of faculty and number of doctorates in faculty and willingness of management to provide research facilities to produce doctorates only then we can produce some quality engineers. Otherwise the gap between quality of government engg. colleges and private colleges will widen day by day. This is not good for corporate sector as well as for India.
