UGC NET Study Plan


In accordance with the UGC Act 1956 under MHRD, governed by the Indian Government, no university is permitted to run colleges without the approval of UGC.

But many universities are running over India without the approval of UGC. Such colleges come under the category of UGC NET Fake Universities.

As per the government rule, if your affiliated degree is from such a university, then it will be considered invalid. Also, you will not be considered eligible to avail of the UGC NET Certificates, even if you have qualified the NTA NET Exam.

So, it is very important to know about these unrecognized institutions before you apply for the exam or decide to do your graduation.

Here in this blog, we have provided the List of Fake Universities that the University Grant Commission declares. Check them below: -

    Dear Sir, Greetings! I have applied for the UGC – NET November 2017 examination and have opted for Management, as a subject. To the best of my knowledge, there are no books that have been suggested by UGC or CBSE for preparation. If, I have overlooked any of the sections in the website of UGC and CBSE, wherein, the book list has been given, then please, do share the name of the books suggested by UGC/CBSE for Management (Subject Code: 17). It would be of help, if the link of the website with the book-list could be shared. It would save you the hassle of entering the names of all the books for Management, if given on the website. Thanking you. With warm regards, Mahesh Kothari
