You are a liar Jodhpur National University- My reply with evidence to their letter to me

Hello everybody,

Now shop of EIILM and CMJ is almost closed but there are many to go.

In one of my previous blogpost, I mentioned that I have written to ministry of HRD, UGC about few other universities who are selling degree like anything.

You can read following blogpost for more detail

After this,
I got reply from ICFAI through e-mail which was useless. 
You may refer following post for entire details

After this, I got call from registrar of CV Raman University asking me to report him directly if I found such incident as they are also "trying" to take action on the issue (no written reply )

Yesterday, I got a reply from Jodhpur National University (A private university from Rajasthan) in response to my mail to ministry of HRD and government of India and UGC). They are so stupid in this reply. First of all, the letter head does not look anything more than a name printed on plain paper. Second, although the letter and envelope has come from the university, it did not have the stamp and registrar's name.

The registrar is Dr. P.K. Dey (can a Ph.D holder be so foolish that he forgets to write his name?). 

Please see response from their end. 


Please click on above image for enlarged view. 

I am going to expose lie of Jodhpur National University  in my response to their letter. They are as follows:

June 06, 2013

Mr. P.K. Dey
The Registrar
Jodhpur National University

Dear Mr. P.K. Dey,

I have got your reply in response to my mail to ministry of HRD, government of India as well as to the University Grants Commission. In point no. 1 to 6, you have done nothing more than telling about your private university. In point no.7 instead of putting evidence.

You have written following in your point no.7

I guess you meant to say "hence" (you wrote hance, it cannot be typo as in key board there is enough distance between these two keys "a" and "e"). I strongly say that your response is incomplete and misleading. The quality of education is visible from your response and above paragraph itself. 

Let me elaborate on the issue. 

First of all, I am not sure what quality you are talking about. If you are talking about approval from various bodies like AICTE, MCI, BCI and all, it is known to the world how it can be bought. I do not want to fall into those argument. 

I would like to draw your attention about the major violation with evidence. 

You should note that you are not a government or public university. You are a state university came into existence after government nexus. 


Please refer following points of the Act
3.3. A private university established under a State Act shall operate ordinarily
within the boundary of the State concerned. However, after the development of
main campus, in exceptional circumstances, the 
university may be permitted to open off-campus centres, off-shore campuses and
study centres after five years of its coming into existence, subject to the following
3.3.1. The off-campus centre(s) and / or the study centre(s) shall be set up with
the prior approval of the UGC and that of the State Government(s) where the
centre(s) is/are proposed to be opened.

Please also refer UGC notification on private universities:
Public Notice on Private Universities 

It has come to the notice of the University Grants Commission that some of the State Private Universities have affiliated colleges and started off-campus centre(s) in violation of the UGC (Establishment of and Maintenance of Standards in Private Universities) Regulation, 2003 and against the judgment of Hon’ble Supreme Court in case of Prof. Yash Pal & Others vs. State of Chhattisgarh & Others. Some of these Universities are running these Centres on franchising basis also which is not allowed. 

It is also informed that Private Universities cannot affiliate an institution/college. They cannot establish off campus centre(s) beyond the territorial jurisdiction of the concerned State. However, they can establish off-campus centre(s) within the concerned State after their existence of five years and with the prior approval of the University Grants Commission. So far, UGC has not approved any off campus centre(s) of any Private University.
Course(s) under distance mode can be started by the private university only after the prior approval of the UGC-AICTE and DEC joint Committee for which Director, Distance Education Council, IGNOU, Maidan Garhi, New Delhi - 110068 is the coordinator.
Note: Even the DEC stands dissolved now, when you were offering the distance learning programme, you violated the norms.

You are selling the degrees and it is clearly visible. Please see following points:
1. You are not allowed to offer distance learning programme outside of Jodhpur as per UGC and earlier DEC guideline. Still you have opened distance learning shops all over the nation. Can you please explain why?

2. Your so called appointed agents openly asking people to apply for franchisee and somebody even claiming to offer MBA in 2 months. Can you please tell me how one can complete MBA in just 2 months?

3. AICTE, UGC as well as ministry of HRD have clearly prohibited to offer engineering degree in distance mode. Then how you offered it through your distance education shop. Can you please explain?

4. The worst part is, your institute does not feature in the list of DEC's approved university list then how you went ahead to offer distance education?

5. Your industry integrated course is again violation of AICTE norms. First of all, what is industry integrated course? You are saying in your press clipping that those who are "working" can pursue the education. How a working person can pursue a full time programme? Do you offer it in evening 8 PM to 2 AM? It is similar degree scam of EIILM, CMJ, MGU Shillong and BITS Pilani. 

Can you refuse that those institute who are claiming national coordinator and others offering 2 months MBA and claiming that all the degree certificate can be verified online. If it is fake then how can it be verified online? This means you are selling the degree for money.

Further, you cannot claim that these people are not associated with you. Because without nexus with university it is not possible. Why these degree shops do not offer such short term verifiable degrees from University of Mumbai, University of Pune, University of Madras or take example of even University of Patna? Why yours and other degree sellers like Jaipur National University, Shobhit University, CMJ University, Lovely Professional University, Jagannath University, MGU Shillong (Mahatma Gandhi Shillong), KSOU Mysore, Maharshi Dayanand University, Swami Vivekanand University MP, NIILM University Haryana exist?
Why they are not able to sell degree from other private universities like Ajim Premji University, Shiv Nadar University, Maher university? Why their name do not appear on all such advertisement? The simple reason is that they do not sell the degrees. 

Please wake up and take your job seriously. You are most important but most useless organisation. You have done nothing to improve higher education and quality of education in India. During all these year, you could not help to make even one single university from our country to world top 200 university listing. Rather, through corruption and maladministration, you have deteriorated education system further. First 42 deemed universities were given recognition by taking bribe, then shut your eyes on 140+ private universities in Chhatisgarh and after that every day there is a new private universities opening in the country like beer and dance bar. 
You do not provide a dedicated email on website so students and general public can report such matter to you. You are so worst that even this IT era when you talk about "promoting education through ICT" you do not display e-mail id on UGC website and never respond email send to UGC. You act when ministry of HRD sends a notice to you. 

To ministry of HRD 
Please initiate action against Jodhpur National University alongwith all such other universities (few examples are: Jaipur National University, Shobhit University, CMJ University, Lovely Professional University, Jagannath University, MGU Shillong (Mahatma Gandhi Shillong), KSOU Mysore, Maharshi Dayanand University, Swami Vivekanand University MP, NIILM University Haryana, Sikkim Manipal University, Punjab Technical University, EIILM University, Assam Downtown University, Don Bosco University, Manav Bharti University etc. There are many who are selling degrees. Please provide a fund to UGC to hire a full time web scanner who will handle mail, complaint from the student and can search on newspaper as well as on internet that which universities are are selling degree in what manner. I guess for crore of students and reputation of the nation, Ministry of HRD can easily afford budget of around 05-06 lakhs. If you cannot, tell me, I will arrange it through public contribution. There are many who will willingly come to this support. We will pay the salary to such person and control them. 

Awaiting for prompt reponse

somebody Manoj Kumar has written me a long comment supporting those universities. However, I do not buy his any view. He tells that he verified by his own about those universities study centre.
Even I spoke to those frnachisee. One of such is Jaipur National's agent called UTS Global.

Here, all evidence are clear and visible about violation. Jodhpur offered degree without DEC approval. In my recent interaction on twitter one of the follower informed me that, AP Public Service commission refused to accept his DEC approved JNTU (one of most reputed university) degree without supporting letter from joint committee of DEC-UGC and AICTE and here Jodhpur is selling the degree without approval itself.

If the agents are fake, why do not they offer degree of Mumbai University, Pune University or VIT (again a deemed private university or BITS (deemed university) or Shiv Nadar University (private university)? The reason is very simple, these universities never allowed that. Without consent from within university it is not possible.

Thats why I am not posting his comments. However, if Manoj Kumar send me an e-mail with his current credential and if I found he is a trustworthy and not associated with any of these universities, I will publish his comments. For Manoj's information: None of these universities are reputed and has no background in education sectors.

for the information of "Manoj Kumar" only
Here, this district coordinator is clearly asking DD to be made in the name of "Jodhpur National University" so how it can be fake? Can he answer?

amit kumar said...

sir,one of my friend has done BBA from periyar university,salem.his resume got rejected on the ground that all the three years marks were contained in a single is this degree illegal?which open/distance university should i select so that i have not to face such problems?

You may ask university to provide yearwise marksheet by paying fee. In Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh and Kerala they have yearly mark sheet as well as consolidated mark sheet. You may also ask university to issue a letter saying this is not the one sitting degree

Dear Govind,
First of all its very fishy to see that institutes all over India is taking admissions for B.ed under Jodhpur national university. When I enquired i found that there is only one NCTE approved college under this university with 100 intakes for b.ed.
I just dont know how all these institutes are making thousands of admission where there is only 100 seats. I also fond many institutes which are offering examinations in there centre only rather than the university campus.
I think after the dissolve of DEC, UGC should take proper steps to stop all these nonsense business.

Agree Taushik. After my this reply, they have not replied anything. They have even not said that they have not authorised these institutes on their behalf to offer degree.
Although DEC has dissolved, the recognition rights has been given back to respective bodies like UGC and AICTE.
For B.Ed degree in distance mode, the university must take approval from NCTE (National Council for Teachers Education)
B.Ed degree is not valid unless it is approved by NCTE (Even if it is from a UGC approved university). All the B.Ed degree from Jodhpur National is invalid (except the 100 maximum permissible from its Jodhpur campus- full time)

taushik seal said...

Govind and this is also very interesting to note that this university has also given permission to various institutes to conduct examinations of B.Ed all over the country. When i Contact an institute in the state of west bengal they readily conformed me that they conduct all examinations of B.ed in their institute only.
I just dont understand how they do these non sense without prior approval from NCTE and how the university is allowing all these

Any such degree from Jodhpur National University, taken out from Jodhpur National University stands invalid

is one sitting degree is preferrable if ok pls suggest the best university i am a huge fan of ur blog i completed my intermediate in 2011 an lost 2 years due to some health issues so pls suggest the best option to do

Hi Ranjith,
UGC has banned 1 sitting degree since 1996 hence one sitting degree cannot be offered. Only fake or private universities may offer such degrees to you but that will be invalid for any job or higher studies
So enroll for the course and complete it. If you have taken admission in degree first year but could not complete, you may be able to complete it in 2 years.

Some institutes are offering one sitting degree from university approved by UGC. Is it possible to complete this degree. Pls reply

Govind Sir, u added that if anyone have taken admision i first year degree but could not complete, they can complete it in 2 years. sir,if i have taken admission in first year but could not attend first year exams, can i complete degree in 2 years. Pls help me by addind university and procedure

taushik seal said...

If you have taken admission in distance education mode and have not appeared the first year exams, after the successful completion of a duration of two years from the session of admission you can appear both 1st year and 2nd year examination together. you can go through the guidelines of the esteemed university for further assistance

If you have enrolled in 1st year and could not complete, you have to submit your migration certificate and failed mark sheet (even if it is absent) and you may get admission to second year degree course of the same subject. However, you have to complete both first year and second year together. University of Madras and Annamalai University offer such facilities (as in Tamil Nadu, you are allowed to have ATKT in all subject). They have validity (they are state government university) and have exam centres all over India. These degrees will be considered as a 3 years duration degree. However, you are not allowed to take admission in 3rd year directly, you have to apply for 2nd year (For this exam will be conducted during next year April/ May).

Do not opt any private or deemed universities offering such offer including one degree as their degree stands invalid. They are not authorised to offer degree other than the way mentioned in their Act, as per uGC norms and the state government directives. They also cannot offer degree outside the city where they are located.

Dear Govind in these regard of 1 sitting i would like to share you something....... I am working the Kolkata centre of University of Madras, Once a candidate came for enquiry in a PG course and when i went through his documents i found that the candidates had passed his graduation from CMJ university. As per his documents he had passed his 1st year in 2010 2nd year in 2011 and 3rd year in 2012 but interestingly his first year marksheet had the serial number of 1275 2nd year 1936 and the serial number of 3 year marksheet is 1124 !!!!
I just dont know how the serial number of 3 rd year marksheet is before the serial number of 1st year whis has been issued 3 years back !!!!!

Hi Taushik,
CMJ's all degrees are invalid now and the evidence you have produced here itself clarifies that how it is involved in degree scam.
Please read

That students degree itself stands invalid as it violates territorial jurisdiction. You may refer the following:

Govind Sir, National Institute for Business Administration, Bangalore is offering one sitting degree with huge amount of fee. Firstly this institute is taking amount of Rs 500/- for registraion and after 10-15 days, they informed the same regarding which university offered for the same. They added that Shobhit University, Meerut accept your degree. When asked to Shobhit University, they told university is not conducting one sitting examination. Pls clarify and they have their website - and contact no. 9141647883. They are making fool to ones seeking degree.

Its a fake institute. Please refer UGC guideline on this

1. Any private tutorials / agency/ franchisee cannot offer degree of any university, if it happens such degrees stands invalid.

2. Shobhit is a deemed university hence it cannot offer any distance learning course outside Meerut. Hence, only the degree which was obtained by giving exam at Shobhit University's meerut campus stands valid, rest all degrees are invalid. So shobhit's degree obtained at Bangalore is invalid.

3. Shobhit was amongst the 44 blacklisted de-recognized proposed list by UGC. The matter is pending in the court.
Please refer my following blogpost for details

4. One sitting degree is banned from UGC w.e.f. 1996 hence such degrees obtained in a single year is neither valid for job nor for higher education.

Shobhit is a big degree scam like CMJ, MGU shillong, EIILM etc.

Sir, If i have taken in first year degree on session 2006, but could not appeared exams, is it eligible to direct lateral entry to second year. I have transfer/migration certificate from the previous institutes. Pls clarify.

Yes, you can. contact Annamalai University's bangalore centre, visit

Sir if the university asked migration certificate, can i submit character certificate issued by school for higher education. Pls clarify

Govind Sir, Annaimalai university refused for lateral entry if not passed in first year. Pls clarify from universities. Pls help me in pursuing degree in lateral entry.

Manisneo said...

Hi Govind,

Does Shobhit University, Meerut ( & MAHATMA GANDHI UNIVERSITY, Meghalaya distributes invalid degrees??

RIOS Board, Chattisgarh - Can one complete distance learning from this board?

You can take admission ask them that you want to take admission in second year and you will also appear for first year alongwith second year. That way it happens

vinod kumar said...

sir my b tech is complete by ggsipu but im fail in 5-6 papers want to change my colg...
is it possible..???


without clearing all backlog, changing college is not possible without clearing backlogs

character certificate is not the replacement of migration certificate

Also, I have gone through the prospectus of University of Madras, you may take lateral entry admission there

sir ,me jodhpur national university se ba kar raha hu,kya me upsc ke lia eligible hu,or agar me salect ho jata hu or bad me in future degree invalid ho jati hai ti kya goverment service se nikal denge ??????????

Sir what about sridhar university

Sanjay Singh said...

sir is phd degree from jodhpur national universty is valid or approved ??

Anonymous said...

Maher univewrsity TamilNadu is genuine

Yes, but it is private university, it cannot offer any course outside where it is situated in Tamil Nadu i.e. in its campus only

It is valid if pursued full time from its main campus noly and awarded as per the UGC's regulation for Mphil Ph.D of 2009
please refer following blo post for details

Shridhar is a private university and it cannot offer any courses outside its campus in Rajasthan. This university has emerged as a degree scamster. It is taking money and selling degree. When I had exposed CMJ and EIILM, I advised people to take precaution and whatever I predicted that turned to be true. So avoid it

Thanks for trusting
Avoid all these 3 universities are not authorised to offer courses outside their cities even in distance education mode.
You may prefer Netaji Subhash West bengal Open University or University of Madras
Please refer following link

if you are appearing for exams at its main campus in Jodhpur then you are eligible.

Dear Govind Sir,
First of all, a big thank to your blog post.
My brother completed his 3 year DIPIETE course after his 12th and it is found to be very difficult to pass the exam and he has 10 arrears to be cleared. We found fast track degrees offered by MCM academy from universities such as Jodhpur National University and Shobit university. We were almost about to join the course and saw your blog and changed the mind. Is there any way that he could save his 3 years by getting lateral admission to any UGC/DEC recognized degree courses. If not, what would be the best suitable degree for him according to you. He did his 12th in PCMC. Also want to know if DIPIETE is recoganized by AICTE

DIPIETE is in fact one of the most difficult examination for engineering and it holds good value in public sector job.
As I have warned people about Shobhit, Jodhpur and many such private universities, please do not waste your money behind these institutes. One day they will shut down.
I suggest, your brother should choose the course of his interest if engineering is not something in which he has aptitude.
He should go for BBA with computer application. He can get lateral entry only if he completes his diploma from IETE

Dear Govind,

I was searching for some information about DEC and UGC authorize university for 2 Year Distance MBA Programme with lateral entry or 1 Year executive MBA programme and I should say by luck I got this blog webpage. frankly speaking after reading all the post by you I'm able to improve my knowledge about the on-going scams in degree course by universities.

First of all Many thanks for all these knowledge sharing.

I'm bit confuse on choosing the University for 2 year MBA Distance Edu programme and 1 Year Executive MBA programme.

Someone in my circle shared one option.

1. Shobhit University Meerut :- 2 Year MBA Distance Edu Degree Programme. with lateral entry (let say if I took admission now before 30-Nov-13 (Last date to enrol) my exam for the session will be in Jan-14 for Second year.

2. I have enrolled in ICFAI University Tripura 2 Years MBA Distance Edu Program in year 2008 but after some time I was not able to attempt for exams and later on lose my interest as was not able to manage time for study along with my job so it’s almost 5 years over and their total fee was paid by me as it was Post dated cheque issued by me to them.
Is there any option I can get my money back or I can be allowed for to continue my MBA degree program now.

The point to be cleared here as per him I'll be attempt for 2 years together in Jan-14 the exams for the session 2013 and 2014 on the basis of some reason due to that I was not able to attempt for 2013 exam and want to give both session exam together in 2014.

When I tried to get some knowledge thru net about this Shobhit University I found they are not eligible for to offer such distance learning programme so bit confused on this situation as on net lots of articles are there and information wary from 1 to other.

Please advise me to come out from this situation.

Thanks !

Dear Govind Sir.... What is status of JJT University Rajasthan? I read in many RTIs of UGC regarding validity of Ph.D. from JJT University, they mentioned that, "Course should be carried out in main campus in regular mode" what is meaning of this sentence? Is it mean that Course work for Ph.D. (Classes and written exam) should be carried out in its main campus?

If course work work for Ph.D. is carried out in main campus and research work (Experimental) is carried out at Laboratory recognized by university where guide is working... Then is it considered as regular mode? Please guide me regarding the same.

Thanks Rajesh
Let me clarify
If you are purely looking for career ahead in private sector, it does not matter whether it is a 2 years MBA or 1 year MBA. Again job in private sector depend on several factors. It is wrong to say that if you do distance learning from any institute, its fine for private sector job. Definitely not.
See, few organisations have demand for purely MBA full time from tier 1 (IIMs, XLRI, JBIMS etc). For experienced professionals, the second preference goes to part time MBA which comes with regular lectures like MMM, MHRM of JBIMS which is of 3 years duration. FMS Delhi also offer such part time MBA
However 10 months- 1 year executive online management programme even of IIMs have no preference in the corporate.
In third, the preference comes to good university's distance programme, preferably from a central university like Pondicherry and reputed state university like University of Madras, Anna university etc.

For higher education and public sector job, including teaching (even as a guest lecture), the requirement remains minimum 2 years post graduation in management. UGC does not approve 1 year executive MBA
So choice is yours.

Now about your questions

1. Shobhit University is a private deemed university and UGC put ban on it. The matter is still pending in the court. It tells the reputation of the university and you can judge best whether you should opt it or not.
2. You can continue with the ICFAI. They allow de-novo registration. You can complete the remaining subject. both Shobhit and ICFAI are private universities and I have voiced strongly against ICFAI due to its focus on money making, still ICFAI is much better as compared to Shobhit.

You are right, Shobhit and ICFAI being private universities, cannot offer courses outside their respective cities i.e. Meerut and Kamalghat (west Tripura). As stated above, private companies will not bother about UGC's territorial jurisdiction as far as the B school is known to them. For public sector job and higher education both degrees stand invalid.

Thats why I advise people to prefer a central university (Pondicherry) or a good state university (like Madras, Anna, JNTU) or a well reputed deemed/ private university (like Bharti Vidyapeeth, KMI, Jamia Hamdard) for higher education.
I hope I have been able to answer you logically.

JJT is a private university and cannot offer any course outside its campus. UGC is right. Yes, the course work i.e. written exam, viva, presentation everything should happen in its main campus only.
Guide cannot be from outside the university. It should be a full time faculty from university only and the degree awarding for Ph.D should happen as per UGC Regulations on Minimum Standards and Procedure for the award of. M.Phil/Ph.D Degree, Regulations 2009
please refer

If it satisfies above condition, it may be deemed as equivalent to regular Ph.D

For more information you may visit my following blogpost too

Can you give me your e-mail ID please to discuss above issue?

DIPIETE is well recognized for central government services and also in many universities for higher studies. Your brother should continue with that.

Unfortunately, there is no lateral scheme.

Even if you want to opt Jodhpur National University "fast track" do it in following condition
1. You should issue your all payment in DD made in favour of Jodhpur National University
2. Appear for exam at its main university campus only

If this happens, then only it is fine

Hello Mr. Govind. I read your blogs, these are very useful for persons who are not in the education field.. I have one query is that I have come to know that if you take admission in any open university for undergraduate course and after completion of that you is any one is interested to learn post graduation from any regular university or college but he/she will not be eligible to get admission in regular post graduation mode.....
I need clarification on this matter.. Suppose person has done BA from IGNOU and wants to go for MA from any other regular university like from Gujarat University..

Mumbai University does not offer B.Sc in Science subjects in distance mode.
However you can take admission to 3rd year of Physics or Chemistry (if you have studied Chemistry in second year) or Mathematics (if you have studied mathematics in 2nd year) from Annamalai University under lateral entry degree scheme.
Your degree will be considered as a 3 years degree programme under this scheme and you are allowed for higher education too.

However, you need to appear for practical exam at university's main campus at Chidambaram, Tamil Nadu

There will be many private universities who will promise to offer you degree in short term but beware. for this job, that qualification may become acceptable but for a long run, it will not.

The above provided option is safest and best

If you complete your degree of minimum 3 years duration from any government open university and if the degree is awarded within their territorial jurisdiction, you can pursue full time degree of any universities in India if you fulfill the minimum criteria.
For example, for CAT you should have minimum 50% mark in graduation (and for any MBA) so if you complete your degree, qualify in the entrance exam and scores well in merit list/ percentile) you are well eligible.

However, for courses like B.Ed. there will be some exception as few state government still prefer full time degree holders. So barring few, very few exception, it is acceptable anywhere. Do not worry and go ahead.

Hello Sir, I am doing MBA from Jaipur National University from my home @ kolkata, will it be a valid degree? if not why?

Hello All
I differ to say that I wish to have MTech/ME/MS in distance/online mode. I am ready to go to any university to write exam or for 1week lab practicals. I cannot do regular, as I am working at Etisalat Telecommunications Sharja. I have 17y experience in Electronics & Communication. I passed ITI 2y course in 1992 by regular mode. Then 10y later did part time Polytechnic 3y diploma and then Institute of Engineers AMIE(equal to BE) in Electronics by non-regular. For me, now I am shocked to find no proper way for higher education - ME/MTech/MS. Part time course here costs like >10lks inr, which is not affordable. I am ready to go to Indian university for Lab and exams. But classes, I can take from MTech tutors here. My friends are also in same dilema. So what could be your kind suggestion. We appreciate your working against universities selling degrees, but please dont support AICTE quoting distance mode is not good for technical courses. We are ready to face the same question paper as regular and write exams along with them at the university but right now, legally such option is available for part timers only. (we did that for part time diploma). I am offered MTech for cash, but no, I am not interested in such frauds eg. SaiNath univ, KSOU (will send exam question on email, answer them back in 10days), Manav Bharthi, Techno Global...all through agents.

It will not be valid.
As per UGC directive, a private university cannot offer a degree or any course in any mode outside its campus.

Few points
I never said AICTE's decision is wrong or right but to be precise, considering current scenario of degree scam in India (You have self witnessed it), the decision to not to offer engineering courses through distance mode seems to be right. However, I strongly feel that the masters degree should be exempted from it. It should be offered to people with work experience and with minimum 3 years experience and who are working.
Currently since engineering courses are not offered in distance mode you may opt for MBA (Operation Management) or General management. I do not think an engineering post graduate degree is mandatory for private sector job. an MBA is more preferred.
You may opt courses like M.Sc. Total Quality Management, M.Sc. Environmental Science, M.Sc. Electronics etc from a good state university.
You may also look for MS in distance mode from BITS Pilani
They offer
M.S. Programmes
Consultancy Management
Manufacturing Management
Quality Management
Software Systems

However, please note that being a private university they are not allowed to offer courses outside their campus so these qualification may not be accepted for public sector job and higher education however, BITS is a very reputed organisation and its qualifications will be accepted by private sector. Moreover, BITS is not involved in degree selling scam. The ecam and awarding degree happens strictly as per the standard. You may choose this institute.

Hi Govind
Thanks for the details. Bits MS doesnot provide Electronics and so we are not interested. MBA in distance is not useful as the outcome is supposed to be like that of Manager, which we cannot get thru distance mode. MSc Electronics is equal only to like BTech. PG like ME/MTech/MS are now desired by several companies abroad, but as you said , not mandatory; but we feel this would neccesary soon. "the decision to not to offer engineering courses through distance mode seems to be right."...I differ again, better would have been to stop selling of degrees by ugc universities.

Dear sir,
I want to do 3 years diploma programme from Jodhpur National University. Is it valid university for diploma course. Is it UGC and AICTE approved university

If it is full time, in campus at Jodhpur then only valid

I agree M.Sc is equivalent to B.Tech only however you may opt for MS Quality Management or MS manufacturing management.
Corporate will prefer specialised degree such as MBA or MS in operation / quality over M.Tech. For the job and career, basically, domain experience is more important than a masters degree in the technical field.
Unfortunately, as of now it is not offered so there is no option. I agree, UGC should have strong control on such degree selling universities.

Hello Govind Sir,

I have done my BCA from Jodhpur National University, I am applying for H1B next year. USA Embassy will accept my application. Please let me know...

Anji Khan said...

hi all my friends...plz anybody will tell me the condition of technoglobal university, shilong . that is actually approved from the UGC or not. and also from HRD. I am planning to do PhD in nursing from that university, so will that degree will be acceptable or not...plz suggest. and tell the truth about this university...A khan

You should apply. I am not sure about it as apart from qualification, there are several other requirements too. Jodhpur is not very much credential university. Your qualification may be accepted, if it is a full time degree course.
Further, US does not accept a 3 years degree, it should be 4 years degree so in first chance, you may be rejected.
Applicants are evaluated on credit basis. You must clear minimum 12 credits to qualify for applying.
For every 1 year of study in a university, you get 3 points and the same rule applies for work experience.
for BCA you may get 9 points only

The qualification is invalid. Nursing Council of India has approved only IGNOU for Ph.D in nursing.
For more details please refer

hello dear Govind ... really a big thanks to you for this all information...
plz can u suggest me that from where i can do the Phd in nursing.. i am lecturer in one govt university in Saudi Arab in pediatric nursing. n having the master degree from reputed university.(RGUHS) now from which university will be better to do the Phd in nursing. n regarding the INC approvar , generally the university agents says, once the university is approved from UGC then for Phd approval is not needed. so really i am confused. even though from CMJ I have registered n submitted my synopsis from batch 2011. but what i can do now and i almost paid 1.25 lac.. i had the receipt of that through agent i did all this. so now how i can get the my fees back or can i do the degree.
and also plz suggest me if any abroad university through which i can do the same. from canada, US or UK...PLZ Suggest...n again so much thnx to u.

Online exam outside the campus of these universities are not allowed. Please avoid, You may opt degree programme by IGNOU offered in your country

Anji Khan said...

But things i want suggestion that if i write exams in the university campus then what will be the condition.

The agents are a liar.
The degree must be approved by respective council.
Further the degree must have been awarded as per the UGC guideline on minimum qualification and process of awarding research degree 2011.
As of now, only IGNOU is approved by Nursing Council of India to offer B.Sc. and Ph.D course in nursing
please refer

You ask them to refund the money. You must be aware that government has shut down CMJ's shop of degree.
None of the university abroad offers Ph.D in distance.

please see reply above

Dear Mr. Govind
Thanks for this excellent blog and making awareness about scams in higher education.
I would like to know whether Jodhpur national university is authorize to award Ph.D. degrees from their jodhpur campus.

Anonymous said...

UGC says that the Ph.D. Supervisor would be decided by the department and not by the candidate. It does not say it must be from the University awarding the degree. So an external can be a supervisor for a student registered for Ph.D. at the main campus of a private university.

Yes nut they have to strictly follow UGC regulation on awarding M.Pjil/ Ph.d 2011
please refer

Dear sir i have done diploma in mechanical engineering 3 year full time from MSBTE and have 10 year work experience in construction and engineering company in dubai and planning to do now Post graduate diploma in energy management from MIT Pune or Executive MBA course 1 year online from KSOU kindly advice which one is valid and good work by you well done and kindly reply me on

I am planning to persue Ph D in economincs from Maharaja Vinayak Global University. whether this university is just like CMJ or Jodhpur National University? Hos can i check the credentials for the same

I am still uncertain that getting MBA degree from Jodhpur Natioan University is valid or not??
Is it good to take admission in this university as distance mood.

Check the following
Have they sent details to UGC about no. of seats available in each faculty and list of research guide, when they are holding entrance exam?
If yes, ask them the copy and check whether they have admitted exactly the same students they have told to UGC then it may be safe
However, private universities are culprits and scamster (except few)

Both are invalid
For MBA you msut be a graduate

Hello Sir, I have done 2 years of diploma in pharmacy but could not complete my degree. So if i take admission to some open university...will they give me admission directly in the 2nd year as i have 2 years of diploma in pharmacy?

There will not be direct second year degree admission except B.Pharmacy which is available for full time only.
You have to complete all 3 years if you are opting any programme in distance mode.
Direct 2nd year is available only for 3 years engineering diploma holders in few universities and thats too for BCA only.

Hii govind sir I want to take admission in 3rd year and I hve complete my 5 sem I cannot do my sixth sem in gu. Due to family reason In which university I can get addmission

Anonymous said...

those who have done one sitting degree from JNU are they eligible for UPSC.

No, not eligible
The degree must be of 3 years duration minimum

Please specify more about the course, years you have completed and pending any then only I will be able to guide

If the university confirms that:
1. The degree is indeed genuine
2. It is provided within its campus
3. It is of 3 years duration

Then the degree stands valid but I am sure none of the university will do this as it is violation of UGC directives and many students have faced problem. Even the university sells such degrees, they will never confirm such degrees as awarded by them.

One sitting degree is banned since 1996 and not valid anywhere.

You cannot save year. It is like you are talking "I do not want to wait 9 months to have a baby, can my wife give birth in 1 month?"

Beyond UPSC there are many careers. Please maintain ethics.

You should worry more only if you planning higher studies in India and abroad, and if you are in public sector job. Otherwise go ahead in your career

Anonymous said...

thanks , surely i will maintain ethics . surely i will not plan for a one month baby . :-) ..thanks for reply .
Bt if they say that you can take your degree from university campus itself by going there will it be deemed as confirmation of genuine or they wont do it as such . Or there should be written confirmation.

In that case please make all payment using DD only in the favour of the university, take all the receipt from the university only.

I am pursuing MBA HR form Jodhpur National University on regular basis.
Is this valid.

sir , is ma geography from jodhpur national university is valid course? if yes please tell regular or distance mode .

If it is a full time thats fine however for placement, I feel you need to struggle a lot.

for violating the UGC norms, awarding degree outside its territorial jurisdiction, awarding degree in short span of time.

Regular degree valid
Distance degree invalid if obtained outside of its campus by appearing exam from outside of its campus

IF it is awarded as per the UGC guideline of 2011, then only valid

Hi govind Sir,
Need to know if i do Diploma in Mechanical Engg from JNU Rajasthan is it valid for abroad job , will i be able to do attestation (HRD/MEA & Embassy verification etc) can i go to Gulf Countries like (UAE/Qatar/SAUDI ARABIA/Oman/KUWAIT etc.) if it above attestation possible I will take admission for this university this is regarding my future.

No, it will be invalid
If you do it directly from the university by paying all the fee to university directly and by appearing for exams at its main campus, then only it will be valid

You may opt Tamil Nadu Open University as well as Dr. ambedkar Gujarat Open University
Both offer graduation after completing BPP a 6 months course

Please do not opt, better see if IGNOU has that particular course
The said course from Jodhpur National University does not have DEB UGC approval and also Jodhpur National University cannot offer any course outside its campus

JRN is not approved to offer distance education
Please prefer universities like University of Madras, Annamalai University, Bharti Vidyapeeth, IGNOU (tough and few employer do not accept)

Please prefer:
Pondicherry University
Bharti Vidyapeeth
University of Madras
Annamalai University

Please take admission directly to university, do not opt any agent

If it is a full time on campus programme then only it is valid.

I doubt any central or a reputed state university will accept JRN degree. JRN is not authorised to offer any distance learning programme.
Please prefer Annamalai University. They have MCA, M.Sc. IT and M.Sc. Visual communication

Govind sir, plz suggest me, main bba karna chahta hu manav bharti university se. Kya yeh university se bba karna chahiye? Main gujarat se hu aur kya manav bharti university ki degree government job me valid rahegi ya nhi plz sir reply fast.

dont do it from shobhit. shobhit is another EIILM
Check with other state or central universities only do not opt any private university
Since you are from Gujarat, check about Annamalai University it has exam centre in Ahmadabad

jodhpur national university is fake or real can i do bba , from there in fasttrack mode

read blogpost you will get the answer
there is no fast track valid three years minimum and every exam you have to give at its main campus in Jodhpur only

Which college is better under a university? Constituent College/ affiliated college for under graduate degree. Wanted to know difference between this two type of college

Constituent college is a college under university. University establish it, run it and manage it. Affiliated college is founded by a society trust etc and they get approval from a university, A private university cannot affiliate any college. In most of the cases, a constituent college is better. However there are few exceptions too. For example BMS of KJ Somaiya college (an affiliate college under university of Mumbai) has more value than ADMI (An constituent college i.e. department)

Is Graduation degree from shridhar university is valid for further studies in other universities??

if it is full time on campus regular programme it is valid. however BE/ B.Tech are not valid as it does not have AICTE approval

Sir I did my B.A. English from Jodhpur National University through their main campus. I just want to know how one can verify their marksheet and degree certificate? As the jnu's professors and office staff are not supportive and do not know anything regarding verification procedure. Currently I am enrolled in MA English ,University of Calcutta and can't leave Kolkata. I want to get it verified because of above mentioned issues for mental satisfaction. Please enlighten the verification procedure like RTI or anything else etc, etc, so that I can verify the same from Kolkata without moving to Jodhpur back again.

if you have done from main campus at Jodhpur then why do you need to verify it,
You may file RTI by attaching marksheet

Sir, is PGDCA and DCA from Jodhpur National University recognized from UGC or AICTE?
What is the actual duration of these two courses in JNU?

For PGDCA and DCA, no AICTE approval is required.
If it is a full time diploma from the university, on campus, a separate approval from UGC also not required
However, for distance it must have approval from DEB

Jodhpur National University does not have approval to offer PGDCA and DCA in distance mode

Ravi Sharma said...

Thanks for the Prompt reply.
Sir, I am pursuing PGDCA from campus itself as a regular student. Is my degree vadid.?

Dear Govind ji,
One of my friend has been offered a job by M.P govt as a teacher due to his father's death,but he is eligible only with a B.ed degree.He spoke to a study center in delhi,who asked him to pay the fees by a DD payble to Jodhpur national university and has asked him to appear in exams.It seems like the work is genuine,but reading the above given comments you wrote that Jodhpur national university has got only 100 seats.How can I judge whether the student enrolled falls within those 100 seats.Is the degree awarded by Jodhpur national university stand valid for govt. jobs.

Many Thanks.


Now Jodhpur university is offering MCA thru distance mode and university is claim that it is approved by DEC please suggest MCA is approved or not...

approved only to offer course in its campus It cannot offer course outside Jaipur and it has to conduct exam in its campus

Go and apply to university directly do not handove it to any third person

However, I doubt Jodhpur National University's B.Ed degree will be acceptable in MP
