The Government of Maharashtra has so far received detailed project reports (DPRs) from nine educational institutes for setting up their self-financed universities in the state.
The state appointed a scrutiny committee after receiving DPRs and has now sought compliance reports from these nine colleges.
The educational institutes submitted DPRs for self-financed universities which include Somaiya Vidyavihar (Mumbai); Dr D Y Patil Infra Foundation, Worli; Kalyani Education Foundation, Pune; Maharashtra Academy of Engineering and Educational Research, Pune; Symbiosis Open Education Society, Pune; Techno India Group, Kolkata; Maratha Rai University; Amity University, Delhi; Hyderabad Sind National Collegiate (HSNC) Board, South Mumbai.
The letter of Intent will be provided to the institutes whose proposals will be approved by the state appointed committee. After receiving the letter of intent, the sponsoring body will have to submit its compliance report to the government. If all conditions have been fulfilled, the proposed plan will then be sent to the Cabinet for its approval.
Further, if the Cabinet approves the plan of the institutes, the bill for setting up a self-financed university will be submitted to the Rajya Sabha and Lok Sabha for amendment.
