UGC Releases list of Fake universities

The Logical Indian

July 2nd, 2015

The University Grants Commission, the apex body for higher education, on Wednesday, published a list of  21 fake universities in the country for the benefit of students. Eight of these 21 fake universities are in Uttar Pradesh (the highest in the country) while six others are in Delhi. Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Kerala, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Bihar and West Bengal have one fake university each.

What is the issue?
Section 22 of the UGC Act of 1956 makes authorizes only a University established by a Central/State act or an institution deemed to be university under Section 3 of the UGC act or an institution empowered by an act of parliament, to grant degrees.

Section 23 of the said act also prohibits the use of word ‘University’ by any institution other than a university established as per the above mentioned norms. The UGC has identified 21 such institutions that are unrecognized. It has warned the public that these are fake universities and are not entitled to grant any degree.
