Trying to get legal sanction to Mr Sibal’s action of revoking the deemed university status to those institutions, which had “abysmal” infrastructure facilities, the government counsel stated that such institutions were not eligible to be elevated to the level of university in any manner.

The government counsel told Justices Dalveer Bhandari and A.K. Patnaik that while approving the grant of deemed university status to only 36 institutions, 44 others had been put on “watch list” for three years to see whether they improve their standard, infrastructure and teaching facilities.

But the deemed university status of 44 other institutions had been “derecognised” as they did not qualify for elevation by any standard.

Universities run by some of the top guns in Tamil Nadu, such as Union minister S. Jagathrakshakan, AIADMK Lok Sabha member M. Thambidurai and the Dravida Kazhagam leader K. Veeramani have been recommended for withdrawal of the “deemed university” status by the Union HRD ministry, as the state earned the dubious distinction of earning the “highest score” of 16 of its varsities in the national ‘black-list’ of 44.
