Imagine that the degree you got was from a fake university? It kills your career even before it can begin. These degree/diploma mills come into being and exploit vulnerable students and kill aspirations. They hide behind judicial lacuna, prosper under bureaucratic complacency and grow with governmental incompetence.
For the past many decades, UGC has been coming up with a list of fake universities. Every HRD minister has been lying to the nation that action is being taken. But nothing changes on the ground. The list remains the same with the dates changed each year. What has the administration done to hunt, find and punish fake universities?
The regulators don’t even know the number of fake universities. UGC lists them as 21 (same list over the last 4 years). A cursory glance of weebly lists 47 . In our opinion, there are hundreds of them.
