COIMBATORE:The UGC has declared 21 universities across the country, with one in Tamil Nadu, as fake as on June 2015. However, academics say the apex regulatory body should take action against these institutions rather than just declaring them fake.

These 21 universities include eight in Uttar Pradesh, six in Delhi, and one each in Bihar, Karnataka, Kerala, Madhya Pradeh, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu and West Bengal. In Tamil Nadu, DDR Sanskrit University, Puttur, Tiruchy is declared as fake by the UGC.

“The UGC Act, 1956 under section 22 (1) provides that only a university established by a central, State or provincial Act or an institution deemed to be university under section 3 or an institution especially empowered by an Act of Parliament to confer UGC specified degrees under section 22 (3) of the Act is considered a university,” UGC Secretary Jaspal S Sandhu said in a public notice on Wednesday.
