UGC Identifies 20 “Fake” Universities: Delhi Leads the Pack with 8!

New Delhi: The University Grants Commission (UGC) has identified 20 universities as “fake,” unable to grant valid degrees. Delhi tops the list with eight such institutions, followed by Uttar Pradesh with four, and Andhra Pradesh, West Bengal, and other states with two each. UGC Secretary Manish Joshi emphasized that degrees from these universities won’t be recognized for higher education or employment purposes.

The “fake” universities in Delhi include All India Institute of Public and Physical Health Sciences, Commercial University Ltd, United Nations University, and more. In Uttar Pradesh, institutions like Gandhi Hindi Vidyapith and the National University of Electro Complex Homeopathy are on the list.

Andhra Pradesh’s Christ New Testament Deemed University and Bible Open University of India, along with West Bengal’s Indian Institute of Alternative Medicine and Institute of Alternative Medicine and Research, are among the identified universities.

Additionally, Badaganvi Sarkar World Open University Education Society (Karnataka), St. John’s University (Kerala), Raja Arabic University (Maharashtra), and Sree Bodhi Academy of Higher Education (Puducherry) are also on the list.

It is essential for students and parents to be cautious and verify the authenticity of universities before seeking admissions to ensure a legitimate and valuable education. This step by UGC aims to protect students from falling prey to deceptive institutions.
