the University Grants Commission (UGC) has officially released the list of 20 Fake Universities existing in 8 different states of India. On August 2, 2023, UGC issued notice warning students, parents, and the general public that degrees can be awarded only by universities/institutions which are established under a State Act or Central Act or Provincial Act or institution, empowered to confer or grant degrees as per UGC Act, 1956.

The notice has also stated that “it has come to the notice of UGC that a number of institutions are offering degrees in contrary to the provisions of the UGC Act. Degrees awarded by such universities/institutions shall neither be recognized nor valid for higher education and employment purposes”.

UGC Chairman, M Jagadesh Kumar, also informed that “UGC’s periodic alerts help students refrain from investing time and money in degrees that hold no value.
