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: -
