Chief minister also noted that many institutes are operating without basic facilities or qualified staff, and said that these universities are set up on disputed lands, causing difficulties for many people.

He asked the officials to investigate all aspects by scrutinising permissions, guidelines, government-provided facilities, student numbers, fee structures, fee reimbursement policies, and the qualifications of teaching and non-teaching staff.
