UGC declared 23 Indian establishments as fake universities

This admission season, the University Grants Commission is imparting a much-wished fact test to prospective students and their mother and father. It released a listing of 23 ‘faux universities’. Unfortunately, they are all practical, although unrecognised below the UGC Act.

Most of such universities are from Uttar Pradesh and Delhi. These include Vishwakarma Open University for Self-Employment, Varanaseya Sanskrit Vishwavidyalaya, Indian Institute of Science and Engineering, Delhi and Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose University.

This isn’t always the first time that those colleges have featured within the UGC’s annual listing of fake universities. Of the overall 23 universities, 14 had been at the UGC’s listing from 2005 — including Commercial University, United Nations University, Vocational University and ADR-Centric Juridical University in Delhi.
The United Nations University, Vocational University, Commercial University appeared inside the list of fake universities final 12 months too. Several of these universities keep claiming that the UGC may accept them on their web sites.

Badaganvi Sarkar World Open University Education Society, Karnataka, St. John’s University, Kerala and Raja Arabic University, Maharashtra have been operational because of 2005, notwithstanding the UGC’s tick list.
The University Grants Commission set up an anti-malpractice mobile in 1995 to register court cases on set up fake universities. While the board has filed FIRs towards numerous establishments, a lot of them are still operational.
