The University Grants Commission (UGC) has warned Bharathiar University Coimbatore demanding an explanation on why the university continues to violate the norms despite receiving the warning of offering distance education programme outside the state.

Notably in last August, the UGC had sent a circular to all the universities in the country explaining that any state government-run university is not allowed to run distance education centres outside the state.

“This has reference to UGC letter dated August 6, 2015 wherein the university was directed to immediately withdraw affiliation/recognition granted to private institutions in various parts of the country against the policy of the UGC regarding territorial jurisdiction. The university (Bharathiar) has not submitted its compliance report in this regard,” said a UGC circular written to the University.

While university registrar K G Senthil Vasan declined to comment. UGC has also sent a copy of the circular to the principal secretary of the higher education, state government of Tamil Nadu.
