University Grants Commission (UGC) has notified a list of fake universities in the country. The Commission has written to the state government departments of higher education, principal secretaries and states to take needed action against the fake institutions, a source said Tuesday.
“I would like to inform you that your institution figures in the list of fake Universities, as the institution is not a “University” within the meaning of Section 2(f) or Section 3 of the UGC Act, 1956, but engaged in the business of conferring degrees or using the word “University” with its name to defraud and cheat innocent students by awarding fake degrees. It has become a matter of concern as many students are becoming victims of the fraudulent act of your institution,” the UGC secretary, Manish Joshi wrote in an official letter sent to Vice-Chancellors (VCs) of these institutes.
