  • As per the information available in the university site of OPJS University (Om Parkash Jogender Singh University) Churu, Rajasthan, it is approved by UGC as well as AICTE and has also got NAAC accreditation. It has PhD programs also in many areas and one can register there for the same. UGC generally inspects the institutions and universities on a regular frequency to check and inspect for the existing as well as new streams added by the university. So, depending on those inspections sometime the university administration would show that clearance is yet to be obtained from UGC or things like that. If some institution defaults with UGC stipulations then UGC may suspend it for its operation as well declare the degree obtained from that institution as invalid. In such cases it is widely published in UGC site also under the list of debarred institutions. Once the institution meets the guidelines of UGC then it can be brought under the list of normal institutions.

    Knowledge is power.

  • While going through the university site of OPJS University, you would find that this university has got the approval of UGC apart from AICTE approval. Moreover, it has the NAAC accreditation to their credit.
    Going through these parameters, you would not face any hurdle while persuing Ph.D from this university. You should be familiar with the admission procedure of the said programme. Apart from fulfilling the eligibility criteria for this programme, you would be required to clear the entrance test arranged for intake of candidates. Later on, they have an interview procedure of the subject experts to choose the potential candidates.
    Hence you will have to show your potential in your subject persuing for Ph.D.
    Don't be disturbed by your observation appearing from UGC sites since they undertake inspection of the programmes examining the various standards and they finally approve it taking some time in approval. Hence this should not be your distracting point.
