We wish to bring to your attention the list of Fake Universities in India 2023 declared by UGC. The information was released on its website, i.e. www.ugc.ac.in | Recently, the Higher Education Regulator, University Grants Commission (UGC), has come up with an updated list of Unrecognised state-wise Universities list and technical institutes & colleges not approved by AICTE. According to an official, “the aim is to widen the access to higher education and bring down its cost by using technological advances.” Many Innocent and irrational people or students are trapped in these Fake Universities and Institutions’ scams. Fake institutions attract innocent students using misleading, false promises and advertisements. Due to a lack of information and research about colleges or universities, many students are trapped by these institutions. So, UGC lists the names of the illegal and non-recognised universities every year. It’s informed that you please be aware and careful with these universities and be updated from time to time on the new list issued by UGC when you are going to join any university. We know that
“Money Hardy matters, but time is very precious!”
Please verify and check the positive reputation and authority of such institutes before enrolling or giving any exam and admission. The mushroom growth of fake Vishwa Vidyalaya is a matter of great concern to the University Grants Commission (UGC) responsible for maintaining standards in Higher Education in the Country.
After due verification, the UGC has prepared 24 operating establishments as fake Universities. The UGC has also stated that “such self-styled, unrecognised Universities which are operating in contradiction of the UGC Act has been declared fake and not authorised to confer any degrees or qualifications”. According to the University Grants Commission Act, 1956, only a University established by a Central, State/ Provincial Act or an institution deemed to be a university under section 3 or an institution specially empowered by an Act of Parliament to confer UGC-specified degrees under section 22(3) of the Act.

The term “fake” applies to an unrecognised or unaccredited university. Fake Universities stand for those institutions which are not approved by the regulator’s approval.

You can find a list of universities that have been recognized by the UGC on their website. If you have concerns about the legitimacy of a particular university, you can contact the UGC or the Ministry of Education for more information.
In these cases, UGC is the regularity authority. These universities are likely as an institution class.

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.

Hi sir I want know that krantka open University for btec right choice yes or no.
IS OPJS UNIVERSITY FAKE UNIVERSITY
Is the opjs churu university RAJASTHAN fake university ?
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.
Sub WHO IS RESPONSIBLE OF THE LIFE OF LACS OF STUDENTS OF YOUR UGC APPROVED UNIVERSITIES SUCH AS OPJS UNIVERSITY CHURU RAJASTHAN HAVING MORE THAN 200 PROFESSIONAL COURSES AFFILIATION AND UNIVERSITY IS RUNNING WITH 10 STAFFS MANAGED BY JITENDER YADAV P N 7726009703 UNDER THE INSTRUCTION OF JOGINDER DALAL 7206660000.
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.
