State-Wise List of Fake Universities in India 2023: UGC Takes Action

Published on

The University Grants Commission (UGC) has recently unveiled a state-wise list of fake universities as of September 2023. In its notification, the UGC has called upon the state governments’ Departments of Higher Education and principal secretaries to take “appropriate action” against these unrecognised institutions operating within their respective states.

Key Highlights:

  1. Delhi Leads with 8 Fake Universities: Among the 20 universities flagged as non-recognised, Delhi tops the list with 8 fake universities. Uttar Pradesh follows closely with 4 such institutions.
