Nizam College won’t get University Status

Hyderabad: Prof. E. Suresh Kumar, Registrar of OU told that the dream of Nizam College to become a University has been shattered. Nizam College is one of the 45 autonomous colleges in the country which were selected by UPA Govt. for getting University status. Ministry of HRD and UGC have decided to amend UGC Act of 1956 which delegates powers to autonomous colleges to award degrees. Govt. allocated Rs. 55 crore under Rashtriya Uchatar Shiksha Abhiyan (RUSA) for converting autonomous colleges into Universities but Nizam College has not been considered under this scheme to become a university.
