HRD asks CBI to probe how banned deemed universities were offering courses in distance mode

The Human Resource Development (HRD) ministry has asked the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to probe how four deemed universities were able to offer engineering courses in distance education mode and were awarded post facto approval by the University Grants Commission (UGC), sources said on Tuesday.

JRN Rajasthan Vidyapeeth and Advanced Studies in Education in Rajasthan, the Allahabad Agricultural Institute and Vinayaka Mission’s Research Foundation, Tamil Nadu had been offering these courses without necessary approvals from the UGC and the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE).

Last month, the top court had suspended the degrees awarded by the four universities between 2001 and 2005 and cancelled the degrees awarded issued after 2005.
