as an Human Resources Professional, I am putting list of such fake institute. Beware! never hire any of the candidate from these institutes and for those who are planning to pursue higher studies, please don't opt these institutes for your degrees as a learned HR professional and a professional HR department will never accept these qualifications. I appreciate Pune University. This University is self monitoring such institutes and keeping its database updated.

Below are my further research with reason:
22. International Centre for Holistic Healing and Allied Research, Kolkata
(This is another fake institute offers MD, Ph.D in alternative medicine)
When we say alternative medicine, in India- These are Ayurvedic (BAMS), Homeopathy (BHMS), Siddha (BSMS), Unani (BUMS), Naturopathy and Yogic Science (BNYS)- all are 5 1/2 years degree and open for only those who have passed 10+2 with physics, chemistry, Biology with Minimum 50%, They must have cleared state conducted medical entrance test. These courses are available in full time mode only and it is as rigorous as an MBBS degree. For these courses, there are councils like Medical Council of India who approves it. The councils are Council for Indian System of Medicine (For Ayurveda, Siddha, Unani), Central council for Homeopathy).
23. Indian Board of Alternative Medicine (IBAM) , kolkata
Reason: As mentioned above
24.Institute Of Alternative Medicines And Research (IAMR), Kolkata
Reason: As mentioned above
25. Indian Council for Alternative Medicine (ICAM), Kolkata
Reason: As mentioned above
26. Institute of Alternative Medicine, Kolkata (IAMK)
Reason: As stated above
27. Alternative Medical Council, Kolkata
28. Alternative Medicine College, Canada
Reason: Canada and any other country in the world does not accept any other system of medicine other than the allopathy (Modern system- MBBS/ MD)
29. International Centre for Holistic Healing and Allied Research (ICHHAR), Kolkata
30. KARUNYA INSTITUTE OF MEDICAL SCIENCE, Tamilnadu
This institute offers courses like BEMS- (Bachelor of Electropathy Medicine and Surgery), MD-Electropathy, Diploma in Electropathy Medicine, DEHM.
This institute is not affiliated to any university and electropathy is not an approved system of Indian medicine. To do courses from these type of institute, you just need to shell out 5K to 15K, they will send book and question paper to your home. You fill it and send them, even if you write all wrong answers, you will get your degree.
32. National College of Alternative Medicine, Raipur
Reason: Same as of institute no. 26, 27 and so on
33. Global Open University (Don't confuse it with The Global Open University, Nagaland (TGOU)- TGOU is an approved state government of Nagaland Government and strictly adhere to UGC, DEC norms). Please remember that only The Global open University, Nagaland is an approved university. Reason: The worst part is that this institute does not tell where it is located,India, Pakistan, US nowhere. You have to contact them through mail only.
34. The Open International University for Complimentary Medicine, Colombo, SriLanka
35. International Open University (IOU)
Reason: The worst part is that this institute does not tell where it is located,India, Pakistan, US nowhere. You have to contact them through mail only. It clearly says, it is a commercial arrangement. If you do few more research on internet, you will find that someone Dr. Suresh Kumar Agarwal is the Vice Chanecellor of OPEN INTERNATIONAL UNIVERSITY who is selling this fake degree to everybody.
36. HOLY ANGELS COLLEGE OF ALTERNATIVE MEDICINES -MUMBAI.(INTERNATIONAL INSTITUTE OF ALTERNATIVE MEDICINES -MUMBAI).BORIVALI.7,POPULAR TERRACE,KASTUR PARK,NEAR HARIDAS NAGAR CIRCLE,SHIMPOLI ROAD,BOIVALI,WEST.MUMBAI
Another fake institute
37. Open International University of Human Development, Ukraine
It has tried to resemble itself with the name of Open University of Ukraine,
38. Indian Institute of Planning and Management (IIPM),Mumbai, Pune, Delhi, Hyderabad and so on...
Yes, you guessed correctly. This institute claims to offer MBA from IMI belgium which itself is a 2,3 room fake, non approved institute. Now IIPM offers students its PG programme in economy and development and offer MBA from MS University (approved one but a distance learning MBA degree)
IIPM is a multi million scam. you can check this link
39. IMI, Belgium Europe
http://www.timi.edu/ IMI Belgium degrees are not recognized in Belgium also leave alone India. You will be jailed in Belgium for trying to get work using IMI Belgium degree.
40. International Tamil University, USA
One of our Indian politician from Mumbai used D. Litt from this institute and put Dr. before his name but after controversy dropped it. The fact was that he was just a 12th standard pass.
41. International Open University, USA
42. Indian School of Business Management and Administration, multiple location
Another fake institute offering various degrees in just 6 months

I am repeatedly getting message from blogger that this post is violating DMCA (US Copyright). It is pathetic. First of all, it is my original posting and research. Nothing is copied from anywhere and even the UGC notified fake universities are available on public domain. This is one of the immensely popular post and thousands have benefited from it. If somebody claim that it is copyright infringement please send me evidence at firstname.lastname@example.org
I am sure it is work of one of these fake institutes.
