New Delhi: The fate of nearly 2 lakh students across the county hangs in the balance with the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) announcing de-recognition of 44 deemed universities, which were found to be deficient on many grounds.Citing the reason that these universities are being run as "family fiefdoms" rather than "institutions of academic excellence", Solicitor General Gopal Subramanium made this submission to a bench of Justice Dalveer Bhandari and Justice Mukundkam Sharma, during the hearing of a 2006 lawsuit, questioning the misuse of the deemed university status by glut of educational shops.Out of the 44 universities listed for de-recognition, Tamil Nadu alone has 16, followed by Karnataka (6), Uttar Pradesh (4) and Maharashtra, Rajasthan and Haryana (3).The 44 deemed universities which have been listed for de-recognition include the following:
