Students in deemed universities will not suffer, Human Resource Development (HRD) Minister Kapil Sibal said on Tuesday, a day after the central government submitted an affidavit in the Supreme Court to take away deemed university status from 44 institutions.
"Technically, we haven't derecognised any deemed university. We have moved the Supreme Court with an affidavit and a report by the expert committee on deemed universities. Let me assure, no student will suffer," Sibal told reporters here.
He was speaking at the 10th Editor's Conference on social sector issues.
"We are going to take care of all students. And government's intention is not to put any student in problem. All students will get a university degree," the minister assured.
Sibal said the government had accepted the findings of the committee on the derecognition of 44 deemed universities.
"The court will tell us what course of action we will take," Sibal added.
