It was suggested in particular, that such an association, if formed, should go into the question of certain difficulties which might arise owing to the conditions of admission of students to certain courses and examinations of the Universities of the United Kingdom not being suited to the qualifications which students from Indian Universities could present. The Lytton Committee on Indian Students in England also hoped that the Indian University authorities would take steps at an early date to estab lish an Inter-University Board for the purpose of co-ordinating the courses of study in India and securing uniformity in their recogni tion abroad. The Indian Universities' Conference held at Simla, in May 1924, passed a resolution unanimously recommending to the Universities that it was desirable that an Inter-University organization should be established. The functions assigned to it were the following: ( i) To act as an Inter-University organization and Bureau of information; ( ii) To facilitate the exchange of professors; ( iii) To serve as an authorized channel of communication and facilitate co-ordination of University work; ( iv) To appoint or recommend, where necessary, a commonrepresentative or representatives of India at Imperial or International Conferences on Higher Education; ( v) To assist Indian Universities in obtaining recognition for their degrees, diplomas and examinations in other countries; ( vi) To act as an Appointments' Bureau for Indian Univer sities; ( vii) To fulfil such other duties as may be assigned to it from time to time by the Indian Universities. Vlll A Provisional Committee consisting of representatives of the Universities was also appointed to discuss ways and means and other preliminaries with regard

infrastructure, good industry exposure and feasible fees structure. Facilities like Wi-Fi, labs,
library, medical facilities, sports and games, etc. are available in the campus. Teaching
method is practical based.
