  25. Rahul Sethi says

    Although Shobhit University is not under fake universities but Its university status, UGC and AICTE approval are suspected. See at 23rd point in this link

    Shobhit cannot offer distance education courses as, Since 2014, UGC DEB has cancelled approval of Shobhit University so it cannot offer courses in distance learning mode anywhere.
    Shobhit University does not have AICTE approval. So a lot of organizations will not accept the degree from the same univeristy to be elgibile for any course or job.

    Is the opjs churu university RAJASTHAN fake university ?

  46. prem paul says

    The Chairman
    UGC Delhi
    REF Victums of Degree Scam run by Your Universities and earning one crore Rs. Per day
    Selling degree with back date to fake students and also planning to open more universities in the country with your grace.
    SIR The following steps may say the life of innocent students to be spoiled from such universities.
    1 university has to close the admission process after one month of the new session .
    2 The enrollement records should be sent to ugc by the university with in seven days after addmission closed with the enrollment No. Name Subject address email id and phone number of each and every student enrolled.
    3 The exams date sheets should be published on the web site of the university and the answer sheets should be collected by ugc staff and should be posted to ugc on the same date after the complition of the examination and be checked by some other university of staff so that the university should not play with the life of innocent students.
    4 The result should be declared on the university web site and also be aviable with UGC for verification.
    Now the exams of OPJS university Churu Rajasthan is going on and if you depute your staff for the said actions you may come to know that what the universities are doing in this country.If you collect the answer sheets of the students for the exams going on you will find that maximum ten persent genuine students will pass out and rest of the students will be passed by the university charging extra money as the papers are being checked by the university and fake students are being advised to write any dam thing in the answer sheet and they will be passed.
    If the UGC order OPJS university to show all the answer sheets of the OPJS university churu form 2014 onwards every thing will be cleared but I am sure they will not provide the answer sheets.
    As joginder Dalal the Chairman of this university now the owner of so many benami properties and an owner of a tv channel named as oktvindia started in 2016 from the money collected from the students is not only a big goon and also planning of open such moe universities in the country as no one dare to complaint against him as he is doing all the activities sitting at Rohtak and if any one make a complaint about the university activities the police says that it is not under their jurisdiction.Some of the higher ranked police officer have also obtained the degrees from this university and this can also be one of the reason for not taking action against joginder Dalal who is not only earning one crore Rs. Per day but also playing with the life of thousand of innocent students with the help of UGC.
    Prem Paul Place Rohtak p. No. 9896330081
    I may be killed by Joginder Dalal with the help of as have made many complaints to ssp Rohtak as well as ssp churu and igp Bikaner but all in vain.

Shobhit University Meerut was set up in 2006 and is a deemed university which is among the best in India . So please stop being in doubt . Also UGC and supreme court asked NAAC to check 44 deemed university which were asked for derecognisation in 2010 and rate them if they can continue. Shobhit was ranked B by NAAC which means Good and C means satisfactory and A means Very Good. Only 7 out of those 44 universities which were questioned and suggested for deregonisation in 2010 has been asked to shut down and action would be taken on them.
