Check The List Of Fake Universities Issued By The University Grants Commission

The University Grants Commission has listed around 20 universities from across the country as ‘Fake’. Most of these universities are located in Delhi.

New Delhi: 

Ahead of the admission season for the upcoming academic year, the University Grants Commission (UGC) has asked the students to check the official website before taking admission in any university. The commission has directed the students to make themselves aware of the recognised universities/institutions in the country as well as fake institutions before enrolling for higher education. 

It has also asked the students to inform the Commission about any university/institution that is offering academic programmes flouting the UGC Act.

What constitutes a University
In an official notice released earlier, the University Grants Commission had noted that the degree can be awarded only by Universities/Institutions which are established under a State Act or Central Act or Provincial Act or institution, empowered to confer or grant degrees as per UGC Act, 1956.

Letter to fake universities
In a letter issued to the vice chancellors of ‘fake universities’, the commission said, “Your institution figures in the list of fake Universities, as the institution is not a ‘University’ within the meaning of Section 2(f) or Section 3 of the UGC Act, 1956, but engaged in the business of conferring degrees or using the word ‘University’ with its name to defraud and cheat innocent students by awarding fake degrees. It has become a matter of concern as many students are becoming victims of the fraudulent act of your institution”.

Underlining that a number of institutions are offering degrees in contrary to the provisions of  the  UGC  Act, the Commission clarified that degrees awarded by fake universities/institutions shall neither be recognised nor be valid  for higher education and employment purposes. The notice further asked the universities to submit a compliance report within 15 days stating that their institution is not awarding any degree.
