The University Grants Commission panel was formed to look into alleged irregularities in 10 central universities and the recommendations have been made in the audit report of Aligarh Muslim University.
Centrally funded universities are secular institutions, but words related to religion in their names do not reflect that character, said a panel member who asked not to be identified.
The other universities that have been audited by the UGC panel include Allahabad University, Central University of Jharkhand, Central University of Rajasthan and Central University of Jammu, among others.
