    Christ University is involved in a controversy surrounding the granting of deemed university status.
    According to norms, before the status is granted, the affiliating university (Bangalore University in this case)
    is required to submit a “No-Objection Certificate" (NoC) to the UGC. The state government refused to grant
    the request for a NoC, and Bangalore University did not send an official NoC either. Instead, the UGC
    relied on ambiguous text in a letter from Bangalore University's registrar.[4] This led to the inclusion of Christ
    University in a list of 44 universities that were to be derecognized as deemed universities. [5] As of
    November 2011 the matter is still waiting the final decision of the supreme court.[6]
