Approvals & Recognitions

The Sangam University, Bhilwara Act, 2012 is an act to provide for establishment and incorporation of the Sangam University, Bhilwara in the state of Rajasthan.

The Governing Council of the Association of Indian Universities (AIU) at its 349th Meeting held on July 3, 2018 at AIU House, New Delhi considered the application of the Sangam University, Bhilwara, Rajasthan for grant of provisional membership of AIU and resolved to grant the same with effect from May 4, 2018 (date of issue of UGC letter) and placed it in the West Zone.


All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) is the statutory Body of the Government of India whose jurisdiction for granting approval is only for technical institutions which are affiliated to a University. Universities are out of its purview for grant of approval. As Sangam University, Bhilwara Act has been enacted by State Legislature, it is a legitimate University of this country established as per Section 2(f) of the UGC Act and, therefore, does not require AICTE approval. This standing of law is based on the judgment by hon’ble Supreme Court in the case of Bharathidasan University vs AICTE which may be viewed Click Here
