Symbiosis University in Pune is one of the institutions to receive the love letter from UGC, and it hated it so much that it took UGC to court:
Symbiosis International University, a non-profit private institution in Pune near Mumbai, took the matter to the Mumbai high court on 20 August, for a stay on a July UGC directive received by Symbiosis on 9 August to discontinue its four-year liberal arts programme.
The court ruled that the UGC “never communicated and-or even asked any explanation and-or even issued a show-cause notice before taking such a drastic action”, court documents said.
The same report contains some information about how some other recipients of UGC's missive have responded. Here's how Ashoka University reacted:
But pre-empting UGC intervention, the university has re-jigged the course to a three-year degree with an optional fourth year project or research paper.
And this is the response of the O.P. Jindal Global University:
Although it was also contacted by the UGC, another non-profit, OP Jindal Global University, said it did not offer four-year programmes, only an optional study abroad year where students can go to the United States.
