The apex body of higher education in India, University Grants Commission (UGC) has recently released a list of fake universities for year 2014. You can read the full press release on their site. UP leads the list with 8 out of 21 universities. Delhi follows a close second with 6 such universities.
In addition to these universities, there are other universities which had had irregularities, malpractices or notices sent by UGC, based on which we have not been doing verifications for the degree awarded by them. A complete list of such universities can be seen on our Education (Self) Verification service page.
For the new students who are trying to secure admissions for higher education, it is imperative to review the UGC list and to ensure that they do not apply or join the universities mentioned there. Ignoring these notices and still going ahead with the pursuit of degrees in these universities will definitely bring lots of problems at later stage after graduating. So the best bet is to steer clear and have a smooth transition to future career / professional life / advanced studies.
