How to Know About Fake Universities in India?
There are 264 technical
institutions and 116 architecture institutes that are not approved by the All
India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), according to Dr Ramesh Pokhriyal
"Nishank", Union Minister for Human Resources Development.
He told the Rajya Sabha that this list was made based on the information received from various sources. Those details are available on AICTE’s website https://www.facilities.aicte-india.org/dashboard/pages/angulardashboard.php#!/unapproved. The concerned State Governments are advised by AICTE to take appropriate action against such unapproved institutions.
Besides, University Grants Commission (UGC) also maintains a list of fake universities on its web-site, i.e. www.ugc.ac.in. To curb the menace of fake Universities/ Institutions, it issues Show Cause / Warning Notices to fake Universities and send letters to the State Governments for taking appropriate action against fake Universities/ Institutes functioning in their State.
