BENGALURU: The private and deemed-to-be universities functioning in the state may soon come under the state government. This was discussed in the House Committee meeting constituted to look into the amendments planned to introduce to Karnataka State Universities Act Amendment Bill 2017. The meeting was held on Thursday.

Following the recent issue of students of a private university in the state suffering due to internal fight between two brothers, the committee considered bringing in private universities under the Act.
According to committee members, the discussion was held mainly to bring in some regulatory measures to control private and deemed-to-be universities established in the state. Some members of the committee raised concerns that the powers of the Governor and the Chancellor of the university were being snatched away through this Bill. The members even opposed the decision taken by the government to set up a separate board for recruitment at universities.

The committee also suggested getting inputs from stakeholders including lecturers, former Vice Chancellors, student organisations, syndicate members and other academics about this bill.
