Here is a list of fake universities organized by state.


UGC has unveiled a roster comprising approximately 20 universities that have been officially recognized as ‘fraudulent’.

The University Grants Commission (UGC) of India has officially released a compilation of counterfeit universities within the country. The UGC has subsequently dispatched communications to the respective state government departments responsible for higher education, addressed to the principal secretaries and state authorities, instructing them to take necessary measures against these fraudulent educational entities.

In an official letter addressed to the Vice Chancellors of the aforementioned institutions, UGC Secretary Manish Joshi conveyed the following message: “I wish to apprise you that your establishment has been identified within the register of spurious universities. It has been ascertained that your institution does not meet the criteria outlined in Section 2(f) or Section 3 of the UGC Act, 1956, to be designated as a ‘University.’ Instead, it has been observed that your institution is engaged in conferring degrees or utilizing the term ‘University’ within its nomenclature to deceive and perpetrate fraud upon unsuspecting students through the issuance of counterfeit degrees. This situation has become a cause for grave concern, as numerous students have fallen victim to the deceptive practices of your institution.
