Alert! How to know if you are enrolled in a fake educational institute or university?
Looking for the 2017 updated UGC and AICTE list of fake universities and unapproved institutions? Know from this informative thread where to check whether or not you have enrolled in a fake educational institute or university in India.
News reports mentioned that UGC and AICTE have released a list of fake universities and unapproved institutions 2017. I hope ISCians take due care, when applying for admission to any educational institute or university, to first confirm whether both the institute/university and the course is a recognized one. I have located the pages at the respective portals and for the benefit of students am posting them here:
UGC list of fake universities
AICTE list of unapproved institutions
If anyone of you has a bad experience of having been enrolled in a non-recognized, unapproved institute/university, please share it here so that other students are not caught in a trap.
Related to this, I wonder how exactly such fake institutes come up in the first place and manage to hoodwink students. Some of them seem to have used the names of freedom fighters or impressive sounding words like 'Gurukul' and 'Vishwavidyalaya' to fool gullible students into thinking they are genuine.
