According to the UGC list of fake universities, 21 universities across India, including, Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, West Bengal, Orissa, Karnataka etc. are not entitled by the UGC act to confer any degree to the students.

According to the words of the Additional Chief Secretary, higher education, Uttar Pradesh, Monika Garg said that every year the UGC declares a list of fake universities in India and the states concerned are directed to take strict actions against them. But, then, what criteria must be met by any institution to be eligible to confer degrees to the students? 

  1. The first criterion that must be met by any institution to be eligible to describe itself as a university says that the university should only be established under a Central Act, a Provincial Act or a State Act or an institution deemed to be a University under Section 3. The criteria further state that any institution deemed to be a university under the state act or any institution entitled to special powers by an act of Parliament are also eligible to hold exams and confer degrees to students. 
  1. The second criterion mentions that any person or individual, or any institution in particular is not allowed to declare itself a university unless they meet the first criteria. Universities which are not established following the UGC act should be barred from providing degrees to students.
