Beware of Fake Universities !
List of Fake Universities in India 2015 declared by UGC
At the time when students all across the country are seeking admission into colleges and universities, the University Grants Commission (UGC) has released a list of 21 “fake” universities in India. Of these 21, six such universities happen to be in Delhi and eight in Uttar Pradesh. An institution can legitimately call itself a university only when it has been established under the Central/State/Provincial Act. These twenty-one institutions have been labelled bogus universities because they lack the necessary legal sanctions. The degrees offered by these institutions, therefore, will not be recognised either.
Every year, there is a substantial increase in the number of students seeking admission into universities. However, the seats in each university are restricted to a fixed number, thereby making the admission process even more competitive. In times like these, it is easy to turn to other institutions, which may not be as coveted, to be able to earn a degree in the course of the your choice. However, it is important to ascertain the legitimacy of the university before you apply to the same. A university that is not recognised by the UGC is after all a “bogus” one and the degree granted by that university is not recognised as one. One of the easiest ways to check the legitimacy of your university is by accessing the list of fake universities released by the UGC.
If you do not secure admission into the college/university and course of your choice, it is worth looking into the many vocational courses offered by the University of Delhi and other recognized universities. The cut-off percentage for admission into these courses is relatively lower than that of other traditional degree programmes. Moreover, these courses enable you with both the skills and the learning of the chosen field, thereby opening up many career opportunities for you. Apart from the many job openings that these courses lead to, they also enable you with entrepreneurial skills.

The most important thing to remember is to choose the course over the college/university. A traditional disciplinary degree does very little to get you the job that you want. When applying for a job, your employer is likely to give your skills and preferences as much importance, if not more, as your qualifications. MeraJob’s SmartProfile™ focuses on highlighting your skills and preferences in addition to your qualifications so that you can get the job that is best suited to you.
Essentially, there are two things to keep in mind when applying to a university. One, go for the course of your choice—the one that’ll enhance your skills and prove to be more lucrative. Two, check the legitimacy of the university offering that course.
