It was established in 1995 and is the first government-private initiative in the region.HistoryThe university was established in 1995, in accordance with the Sikkim Manipal University of Health, Medical and Technological Sciences Act, 1995 ; with the aim of imparting exemplary educational opportunities and healthcare services in the State of Sikkim and country wide.AccreditationSMU is UGC recognized private university. It is member of the Association of Indian Universities (AIU) and its recognition with Distance Education Council (DEC). is pending with UGC subsequent to sikkim high court's order dated 26.06.2015.In the final order to judgement in wp(c) 04 of 2013 on 26.06.2015 Hon. High Court Of sikkim upheld the territorial policy of UGC but at the same time validated the degrees of smu distance education students who were enrolled in any programme of SMU until the date of judgement. Subsequently court came up with a clarification 3 days later i.e. on 29.06.15 explaining the exact position of students degrees. UGC thereafter filed a SL petition in Supreme court on 23.09.15, but the same was also dismissed by supreme court, hence protecting students degrees.UGC has also issued a notice on 01.10.2015 on its website, in which all the 3 judgements related to SMU have been uploaded. But still, it would have been better if UGC clearly issued a specific circular validating the degrees of students as intended by courts order.UGC is expected to take a decision on SMU's distance education programs within 6 months starting from court's order dated 26.06.2015, until then SMU has shut down its study centers all over India and abroad except state of Sikkim.
