Many compare private universities to a shop where certificates are sold in exchange of money. Now there are more than 50 private universities in the country but only few of them are maintaining the standard. Many universities taking huge amount of money but are not providing proper education facilities. Many universities even don’t have own campus, some universities are running only on a rented floor of a commercial building. Some low caliber students are taking a prestigious certificate without touching books.
This situation is not good for the image of those private universities which are running properly and giving proper education.
Some university owners themselves are becoming VCs, Pro-VCs and treasurers, in many cases they are very low profile.
Now many research institutes and companies are baring many private university students to apply, that means they are not willing to recognize those universities.
Recently ministry of education issued a circular which bars members of the trustee boards to become the VCs, Pro-VCs and treasurers. The circular also said, president will appoint VCs, Pro-VCs and treasurers from the name list sent by the university.
Naturally they (the owners) are not happy with this move. They are saying it is not in line with the private university act 2010, and demanding withdrawal of this circular, otherwise they would take legal action.
