    Understanding of a deemed university is as follows.
    1. It is autonomous in the sense of setting its own educational agenda (courses, syllabus, teaching methodologies etc.)2. It is administratively autonomous in the sense that it does not need to abide by the rules and regulations of any other university on adminstrative matters.3. It can award degrees under its own name, instead of that of an university to which it is affiliated.4.It cannot be an affiliating university in the sense of allowing other institutions to affiliate themselves to it.5.It cannot be a purely teaching institution. Research has to be an integral part of its activities.
