The Union Territory of Lakshadweep is also expected to have a college affiliated to Pondicherry University in the near future. The Pondicherry University was established by an Act of Parliament ( No. 53,1985 ) with the following objectives :

  1. to disseminate and advance knowledge by providing instructional and research facilities;
  2. to make special provisions for studies in French and for integrated courses in Humanities and Sciences in the educational programs, and
  3. to take appropriate measures for promoting inter – disciplinary studies and research.

The vast jurisdiction over three Union Territories gives the Pondicherry University a national character. The residents speak diverse languages such as Tamil, Hindi, Bengali, Malayalam, Telugu, English and French.

The Pondicherry University is fully supported by the University Grants Commission. The University of Pondicherry is a member of the Association of Indian Universities and the Association of Commonwealth Universities.
