No, the university cannot take an action against you for creating email id under their name unless you conduct any illegal activities prohibited under the law on the name of the university. The university may file a cyber crime case against you, if you use the email id with the intention to conduct any cyber crime or defame the university name.

However, to check the legality you can consult a cyber crime lawyer in india.

Interesting query. Theoretically, yes they can take action against you if you are using it without their permission. But generally, universities want to avoid bad publicity such an action will bring. Can the University sue you? Yes. Will it? Depends on the University.
