Admissions are going on in the universities across the nation and this news might come as a shock to many. The University Grants Commission (UGC) released the list of 23 fake universities on Tuesday. What’s even more surprising is most of the fake universities are in Uttar Pradesh and Delhi.
Eight universities labeled as fake by UGC are situated in UP while seven are in the national capital Delhi. The listed fake universities include open universities, one women university, one spiritual university, and even some medical universities.
