    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.

    Unless and until we got fooled and duped by the gullible college or University we may not know the veracity of their claim that they are recognized. Most of the educational Institutes are set up and run by politicians and the way they construct big building with big playground and other facilities , we the parents gets floored over such vast infrastructure and never give a thought that the Institute was really recognized by government. In this regard I wish to add that the Modi government is contemplating closing colleges and Universities which are merely existing and not functioning well so that the career of students wont be affected.

    It is a really needy posting or alert we can take as there are so many universities in the country as well in the states itself. One cannot verify the genuineness of a university on the urgency of admission. But it is become a necessary by seeing the alert of the author. In those days there are many colleges in a city having controlled by one university. A state have one or two universities under which many colleges. But presently even from the college bus we can see this university and that university. This is like our earlier joint family system and present secular family system as the secular family system never equal to the joint family system though every freedoms are there in that.

    A good alert. These days,imparting cation has become a money making business than knowledge gaining institution. Every Tom, tick and Harry who has some money to manage a school runs an educational institution to mint money. We need to enquire well about the institution we prefer to join, to be free from trouble after the completion of the courses.

    I would advise students to also check the campus itself, even of recognized institutes, before applying for admission. Some of them show impressive photos and list facilities that are actually non-existent. Check too if there are qualified faculty who actually do give classroom lectures and are not merely names on the list of teaching staff on the website.

    There is no direct way to find fake university / institute by visiting. All one should be aware by checking list of UGC approved. Read prospect of college institute and history of college. i.e. how old is college. Did AICTE visit college for rating. Make sure to talk with seniors or passed out students of college to make sure college degree is accepted in jobs and taking admission to other institutes. Mostly fake institutes ask for money in cash. In that case avoid it by some excuse and research about it online and inquiring in respective university.

    Simply put, these schools don't have the authority to grant degrees. Education certificates issued by such colleges are nothing but a piece of paper.
    The Capital also has seven of the country's 23 fake universities, the University Grants Commission has said.
    In an annual review, the UGC and All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) last month put out a list of such fake institutes on their websites, warning students ahead of the new academic session that kicks in next month.
