| Jurisdiction and admission to privileges ||
No educational institution situated within the University area shall, save with the consent of the University and the sanction of the State Government, be associated in any way with, or seek admission to any privileges of any other University established by law.
Any such privileges enjoyed from such other University, before the date on which this section comes into force, by any educational institution situated within the University area shall be deemed to be withdrawn with effect from such date.
With effect from such date all educational institutions admitted to the privileges of the Gujarat University and situated within the University area shall be deemed to be admitted to the privileges of the University, and the University shall, as far as may be possible and consistent with this Act, admit such institutions to all such privileges as they had from the Gujarat University immediately, before such date.
|University open to all irrespective of religion, race, caste, sex, place of birth or opinion ||
- No person shall be excluded from any office of the University or from membership of any of its authorities or from admission to any degree, diploma or other academic distinction or course of study on the grounds only of religion, race, caste, sex, place of birth, or political or other opinion:
provided that the University may, subject to the previous sanction of the State Government, maintain, affiliate or recognize any college or institution exclusively for women either for education, instruction or residence, or reserve for women or members of classes and communities which are educationally backward, places for the purposes of admission as students in any college or institution maintained or controlled by the University.
- It shall not be lawful for the University to impose on any person any test whatsoever relating to religion, race, caste, sex, place of birth, or political or other opinion in order to entitle him to be admitted as a teacher or to hold any office in the University or to qualify for any degree, diploma or other academic distinction or to enjoy or exercise any privileges of the University or benefaction thereof.
