smithi-iraniThe government today said 22 fake universities had been identified by University Grants Commission (UGC) which had been put on black list. In a reply to a query in Rajya Sabha today, the HRD minister Smriti Zubin Irani said ”state governments should lodge FIRs against fake universities. We had written to chief secretaries of respective state governments to investigate the matter and register complaints in police stations against these fake universities. Prosecution may also be initiated against those who are involved in defrauding and cheating students by misrepresenting themselves as ”universities” awarding degrees with their name”. ”We are writing to Ministry of External Affairs about fake universities overseas so that students can be informed before paying huge fees and not get trapped abroad,” she added.
