UGC mysteriously extends Institution of Eminence deadline (that no national law schools made) to 22 February

None of the national law schools have applied for the coveted status, as we reported last month, though Jindal Global University (and its law school) has.

Thanks to an eagle-eyed reader for letting us know.

The Indian Express reported:

Institutions of Eminence: UGC extends deadline for applications to February 22 | The Indian Express

THE UNIVERSITY Grants Commission (UGC) on Tuesday extended the date to receive applications for Institutions of Eminence (IoE) till February 22. The previous deadline was December 31.

The reason for the decision to extend the deadline is unclear considering that HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar had called the response to the scheme impressive. The UGC has received 103 applications including JNU and Delhi University for IoE status.

The IoEs are proposed to have greater autonomy compared to other higher education institutions. For instance, they will be free to decide their fee for domestic and foreign students and have a flexible course duration and structure.

And LI is "mysteriously" lobbying for NLUs to be included at the expense of JGLS. Wouldn't be surprised if you are indirectly responsible for this deadline extension.

Greetings! Where can we find the list of all the institutes applied for the tag of Institution of Excellence (IoE) before the deadline to submit the applications was extended?
