It says that universities will have to abide by the promise they had made during their foundation as per the law, that is to “preserve the secular, democratic fabric and aspire for universal brotherhood and tolerance”.

The ordinance will now be presented in the state Assembly in the session beginning from July 18.

Under the new provisions, that are part of the conditions laid down by the Uttar Pradesh Private Universities Ordinance, 2019, private universities will also have to abide by the academic calendar as established by various controlling bodies.

The ordinance is aimed at “improving functioning and academic standard of these universities”.

The varsities will have to ensure admission to specific number of students from poor communities on 50 per cent fee and keep 75 per cent faculty as permanent employees. In cases of anomalies, the state’s higher education council will now be empowered to probe the matter.

These provisions will give the state government more power to keep a check on the financial and academic activities of private universities. It is being seen as an attempt to regularise the functioning of the private universities and to bring them under the government scanner.
