UGC chairman M Jagadesh Kumar has answered a couple of questions on how the upper training regulator identifies and takes motion in opposition to these fraud universities.

What’s a pretend college?
Jagadesh Kumar: To know what a pretend college is, we have to see how a college is outlined in Part 2(f) of the UGC Act, 1956:
A ‘college’ means an institute established or integrated by or beneath a central Act, a provincial Act or a state Act, and contains any such establishment as might, in session with the college involved, be recognised by the Fee in accordance with the rules made on this behalf beneath this Act.
Additional, in accordance with Part 22 of the UGC Act, the correct of conferring or granting levels ought to be exercised solely by a college established or integrated by or beneath a central Act, a provincial Act or a state Act or an establishment deemed to be a college beneath Part 3 or an establishment specifically empowered by an Act of Parliament to confer or grant levels.
Thus no particular person or authority apart from these assembly these standards ought to confer, or grant, or maintain themselves out as entitled to confer or grant, any diploma.
‘Diploma’ right here means any such diploma the earlier approval of the central authorities and specified by the Fee by notification within the official gazette.
Any establishment which isn’t established as per the UGC Act and presents levels in contravention of those situations is a pretend establishment.

Jagadesh Kumar: Such circumstances come to the discover of the UGC by means of print or digital media, on receipt of a grievance from the general public or college students, references from state/Union territories/native authorities and courtroom judgement and so forth.
The UGC’s Anti Malpractice Cell (AMPC) has been functioning since 30 Might 1996. The target of the AMPC is to curb the menace of faux universities and levels. The cell is coping with all issues referring to the existence/functioning of faux or non-recognised universities/establishments functioning in contravention of the UGC Act. The AMPC liaisons with totally different companies of the central/state governments to test the menace of faux and non-recognised establishments and in addition requests the states/Union territories and native authorities to take motion in opposition to such establishments for violating the UGC Act and different penal legal guidelines.
We request most of the people to get in contact with the UGC in the event that they discover any establishment providing levels in contravention of the UGC guidelines.
What does the UGC do as soon as a pretend college is recognized?
Jagadesh Kumar: The UGC issues show-cause notices/warning notices to unauthorised universities awarding invalid levels. It points press releases and public notices containing a state-wise listing of faux universities within the nation. We additionally writes to state chief secretaries, training secretaries and principal secretaries to take motion in opposition to the pretend universities/establishments positioned beneath their jurisdiction beneath intimation to the UGC.
Is there a listing of faux universities which college students can discuss with?
