UGC NET Exam

New Delhi/11.02.2019: The University Grants Commission (UGC) has recognized 24 fake universities and sent a legal notice to two universities. The Minister of State for Human Resource Development, Satya Pal Singh, said,

“The UGC has issued show-cause/warning notices to fake universities and cautioned that running of undergraduate and postgraduate degree courses and giving misleading advertisements shall attract severe action under the provisions of appropriate laws including the UGC Act and the Indian Penal Code.”

With UGC releasing a list of 24 fake universities in April 2018, shockwaves prevailed across the country. Although these 24 self-styled universities are not entitled to confer any degree, these seem to be quite operational throughout the name. More shocking is that out of these 24 varsities seven are from the capital, Delhi.

A notice issued by University Grant Commission reads like this, “Students and public at large are informed that at present following 24 self-styled and unrecognised institutions are functioning in contravention of the UGC Act in various parts of the country. These universities have been declared as fake and are not entitled to confer any degrees.”
