Three Big UniversitiesThree big groups have put forward their proposals to the Maharashtra higher and technical education department to set up universities. The state government has recently notified the model guidelines for private institutions to set up universities.

Rajesh Tope, higher and technical education minister said that the proposals to set up private universities were received from the DY Patil group, the MIT group and the Rai Foundation in the past couple of weeks.

The minister added that the proposals will be scrutinized by a committee headed by the principal secretary in the higher and technical education department and if these fulfil the eligibility criteria, they will be given a letter of intent.

“Students will flock to Maharashtra after dedicated law universities are established in Aurangabad and Mumbai. Also, the Indian Institute of Information Technology is being set up in Pune and Nagpur,” Tope said.

Tope said “the government would ensure that the private universities come up with proposals for new and innovative courses. We do not want them to come up with conventional courses. There are enough checks in place. If a proposal for setting up a university does not fulfil all criteria, the scrutiny committee can reject it,”
