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).
