Fake University List: UGC Declared State-Wise Forged Universities in India

Posted on : Fri, Apr 27 2018

The University Grant Commissions of India (UGC) has recently declared 24 unrecognised, sham universities running. These self-proclaimed institutions are against the UGC act and therefore declared as fake & non- entitled to issue any degree.

The list has been released by UGC, keeping in mind the interest of students and public concerned. Many students with an aim to immigrate overseas or to have better Job opportunities & enhanced careers, pay huge sums of money in the form of fee payments to these fake universities which are not even entitled to issue a degree. Qualification degrees from these institutions are not even recognised in Indian creamy job market, let alone in immigration sector.

The University Grants Commission Act, 1956 under Section 22(1) states that only a University established by a Central, State/ Provincial Act or an institution deemed to be university under section 3 or an institution especially empowered by an Act of Parliament to deliberate UGC specified degrees under section 22(3) of the Act, are deemed to be Institutional recognised university.
