The group is proud to have not only met but also exceeded the norms set by the Government of India. And this has accorded it the status of Deemed University. This reflects the level of commitment and dedication the group has towards its objective. Currently there are three such deemed universities, at Navi Mumbai, Pune and Kolhapur, under the D Y Patil Group. The biggest advantage of this status is that the group can set up its campus anywhere across India and overseas.
