Dear Expert Member,

One of the Deemed to be University claim the they will claim defamation case on student for issue of  students have complaint with facts and evidences to UGC, Ministry of Education and AICTE for violating of Regulations and rules in management open and distance program of statutory body and regulatory body and pray to government bodies to take appropriate actions against Deemed to be University. Also, Deemed to be University also written and request to AICTE and UGC for not take action in this violation case when such students are complaining in UGC and AICTE.

After that UGC and AICTE also validate and consider all allegations and complaint of such students on above case through duly constituted complaint Redressal Committee and decision are pending from them.

So kindly suggest to me how to counter fight of defamation case of Deemed to be University against Student.

Student is under economic weaker under category OBC category.

In response to your query,

The mere fact that someone claims to be defamed by another person does not guarantee that a case will succeed. Defamation accusations can be defended in a variety of ways. If the defamer can successfully assert one of these defences, despite the defamation, he or she may be able to win the lawsuit.

The following are the most common defamation defences:

Truth, The allegedly defamatory statement was just an expression of opinion, Permission to the allegedly defamatory statement being published, Absolute privilege, Aualified privilege and Retraction of the allegedly defamatory statement.

In your case you can defend yourself by stating the truth and presenting the evidence you have against the university. Defamation is always defended by the truth. Remember that a false statement of fact is defamation. So, if the statement was true, it wasn't defamatory by definition.
