Goa University to remain a state University

The standing committee of the ministry of human resource development submitted its report to the Rajya Sabha on Wednesday 17th December 2008 recommending the deletion of Goa University from the list of universities to be centralized under the central universities bill 2008.

The committee took cognizance of the views and representations received from various sections of the society and reached the decision. However the committee also sought efforts to be made to ensure that Goa does not remain the only state in India without a central university.

One of the prime concerns pointed out to the committee against centralizationGoa university of the goa university was that local students from Goa who fail to obtain seats in the stream of their choice would be left with no other university in Goa to apply to and therefore would be forced to go to neighbouring states for their higher studies . This would invariably nullify the objectives of providing additional access and competitive ambience through a central university. The members of the committee therefore agreed to respect the views of the people of Goa and recommended the deletion.
