The Government has directed University Grants Commission (UGC) to review the functioning of institutions deemed to be universities especially with regard to the availability of infrastructure and teaching resources (faculty) therein. As informed by UGC, 125 institutions deemed to be universities have been inspected by 125 UGC Expert Committees. 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. As regards research, the Expert Committees have observed that in most cases, the overall research component required further strengthening.
