SRINIVAS University is governed by the SRINIVAS UNIVERSITY ACT 2013, an Act incorporated and established by Government of Karnataka published as Karnataka Gazette Notification on 25/03/2013.
The Government of Karnataka, Higher Education Department vide its Final Notification No. ED 29 UNE 2015, dated. 20/02/2015 has accorded its approval for the establishment of SRINIVAS University.
UGC has further clarified in its Status Letter No. F8-16/2015 (CPP-1/PU) dated 23/08/2015, that the Srinivas Group of Colleges have been permitted to start Srinivas University as established by the Srinivas University Act 2013 of the Karnataka State Legislature. Further they are empowered to award degrees as specified under section 22 of the UGC act.
As per Supreme Court Judgment, Universities do not require AICTE approval. Only institutions which are affiliated to Universities require approval. As SRINIVAS UNIVERSITY is a Private University established by a State Act, it does not require AICTE approval. This standing of law is clarified by the Supreme Court in the case of Bharathidasan University Vs AICTE . A copy of Public Notice & RTI reply by AICTE and the copy of the relevant judgment are enclosed in the website www.srinivasuniversity.edu.in.
However, prior to the formation of Srinivas University, the constituent Colleges of Srinivas Group of Colleges , were affiliated to Mangalore University/VT University/RGUHS with AICTE approvals to run their Courses. Hence, they have established norms & standards laid down by AICTE.
Srinivas University is a member of Association of Indian Universities (Ref.No. Meet/GC/336/2015/260157 dated 15th December, 2015) so that its degrees awarded are accepted by all Universities in India and abroad (Website: www.aiuweb.org).
