Top Universities in India for distance education/ correspondence education and online education degree with full validity

Dear Friends,
I have regularly updated you though my various blogpost on degree scamster universities in India, safe university and my ongoing initiative on statewise list of institutes offering distance learning programme and their jurisdiction.
You will find the entire list on http://simplygovind.blogspot.com
To sum up again, as per the recent UGC guideline on distance education it is as follows:

1. Jurisdiction of central university: Central university has jurisdiction to offer distance learning courses anywhere in India hence pursuing courses from a central university is a safest way. Not only this, in terms of quality also, central university is better compared to most other universities.

2. Jurisdiction of state university: As per the Act of respective university but not beyond the state where they are situated.

3. Private and deemed university: Only in the campus where they are situated i.e. the within the city of their existence only.

So, it makes clear that if you are planning to opt any graduation or post graduation course and wish to decide higher education in future in India and abroad, you want to migrate to other countries so you need attestation from ministry of HRD or you wish to opt public sector (government job including teaching and non teaching post in universities and colleges) then carefully choose your university.

So the step is as follows:
1. Always opt central university
2. If you want to opt state university, ensure to apply to university directly and ensure the University Act specifically mention that the university has authority to offer distance learning courses outside their territorial jurisdiction (UGC says both state and central university can offer course as per the Act of the university.
3. If you decide to opt a course from private and deemed university, apply to university directly (do not apply to any franchisee or study centre) and appear all exam at such university's main campus and retain all the evidence that you have appeared for all exam at main campus and you have applied to university directly.

If you are looking degree just for a private job, you may need not to bother about jurisdiction but reputation of the university definitely matters. Here, I am providing list of all central universities and you can do course from them without any worry. Please note that all of them do not offer distance learning courses. You may visit my blog simplygovind.blogspot.com to check statewise list of such universities, courses available and exam centre.

    4. It is not difficult.
      Irrespective of the location you have asked, at the time of interview in the public sector job or at the time of admission they will ask you to bring certificate stating that the degree has been provided with approval from uGC and without violating territorial jurisdiction. When the university is controversial, they ask strictly for it.

  2. Hello Sir,

    The blog is highly useful. I have a point to discuss with you. Amity Global business school, (founded by Amity University, Noida), which is present in all the states, is offering bba + mba course. Is this a valid degree ??? Pl clarify the confusion..... Thanks in advance.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi,

      please note the point no.3 in the blogpost above. Amity is a private university and in each state it does not have authority to be present. it has a campus in Noida which is approved by UGC and as of.now it is offering distance learning course from here only. even if this university offer courses in other cities such qualification stands invalid for higher education and public sector job. for private sector job, this university has not got any bad reputation for running degree scam so it depends on company to company whether they accept the qualification or not.

    100 % Agreed. Thank you very much for the clarification. Final doubt, Work experience at any of their B-school will be affected ???

  6. Hi Govind,
    Went through your blog and find it informative.I had done some research aswell and have been getting diplomatic replies from DEC.
    A clear (not fully clear though) guideline on franchising and territorial jurisdiction is coming from DEC/UGC now only where as many courses have been going on for a long time.In this juncture what do you think would be the validity of the already awarded degrees? It will not be correct from the part of these bodies to punish the students for authority's failure to regulate. What is your view on this and what do you think about legal options students have if DEC/UGC makes the courses invalid back dated.

    1. Agree to you Prem. The whole education syste is unholy nexus and UGC is a scammaster of this. during tenure of Sukhdeo Throat many institutes got deemed university status and later UGC found as many as 44 Universities are ineligible for this. now look at these distance learning degree scam by these private universities and deemed universities. I complained to UGC about around 8 such univedsities but it did nit take any action and this jurisdiction notification came when.many have burnt their hands

    3. thank alot for your reply. But Sir i m Still not clear About its Approval by both AICTE & UGC ???. I got my mark-sheet of 3year sem engineering of "Uka Tarsadia University" but on the top of it, it was just written that developed under UGC ACT". no specification of AICTE so i am confused about its approval
      Sir pls Reply mst.. 1s again thnk u :)

      Delete
    4. See,
      Any university established by a state government or a central government automatically gets UGC approval. University may not need to take approval from AICTE but the college/ department/ institute under it has to take approval. UGC Act and AICTE are two different things
      Responsibility of UGC is to control and grant recognition of universities and stipulating guideline on awarding degree whereas AICTE's role is to maintain standard through approval and designing framework for engineering (degree, Diploma, masters), MCA and management MBA/ PGDM
      So you need not to get confused.

      About this university, since it is a private university, its degree is valid only if you have pursued full time courses from its campus
      AICTE has not updated its current list so better you ask the university to provide copy of AICTE approval

    1. Vinayak Mission is deemed and a private university so it was not allowed to offer any courses outside Salem (TN) and Sikim (both separate university) but it sold degrees like anything hence its degree stands invalid
      Further, UGC found that they do not have capabilities to deliver the degree and derecognized it, now the matter is pending in the court

      Since you have not completed the degree from Its Salem campus and from Sikkim, it is violation of territorial jurisdiction hence your degree may not be accepted for public sector job and higher education however, it may be accepted by private companies.

    1. Hi
      EIILM degrees will be rejected in most of the cases in private sector job and all cases in public sector job.

      If you get admission in PG in a good university, its good but wherever the requirement will be graduation, you may face lot of difficulty

    2. they do not mention on there certificates distance or regular ,someone told me that after completing post-graduation ,..company will consider on basis of post graduation only.
      now i don't want to waste 3 year more for graduation .

    3. Education is investment and not waste.

      EIILM's all officers arrested, they are not offering any degree and companies have already blacklisted EIILM
      Whoever has told this to you, they have misguided.
      UGC has put ban on 1 sitting degree almost 15 years back.

      I request all reader to take a pain to visit through my various blogpost where such questions are clearly answered. Frankly speaking after seeing such degree buying attitude of people, I should not respond to such query.
      You may refer about the truth of EIILM from my following blogpost
      http://speakhr.blogspot.in/2013/07/eiilmdegreescam.html

      Further, if you think that investing 3 years in real learning by honestly studying the degree is a WASTE why do you want to buy a degree? Go and tell simply the world that you are above than any graduates and you do not need a degree. Our such kind of degree buying attitude only give birth to such degree scams. We want to buy everything with money. I do not know where will such attitude lead us.

  18. Hello Mr. Govind,

    I am Joshua, a Nigerian, I hold a BSc Computer Science from OOU Nigeria. I presently reside and work in The Gambia.

    I am so grateful for this blog, it has really opened my eye to studying in India. However, I have fallen victim already to CMJ University via

    IMSR India, by enrolling for a BSc IT in Sept 2012, but all of a sudden, IMSR India which is CMJ representative stopped communicating with me,

    until i broke the silence by finding out what was wrong, they refused to tell me. After making my findings online, i arrived at the truth, that

    the university is shut down.

    Sir, I have 2 issues here, don't know if I can find solution to them.

    1. Can I get my money back from IMSR-CMJ? After paying all the fees of about USD 800. I have all our email discussions, copy of receipts of

    payment via IMSR India and even the answer sheets from the school. I made all my payment via IMSR India web portal or payment gateway.

    2. I am interested in putting for an Online MSc IT in any reputable state or central university in India. I wont be able to travel to India, as I

    am in The Gambia. I seeking a University which will afford me the opportunity to take classes and exams online.
    Can you help me with accredited and approved university where i can take such programme?

    I will be very grateful if you can be of help. God Bless you for your good work.

      Can you help me with accredited and approved university where i can take such programme?


      Please note that none of the accredited and approved universities in the world allow complete online programme. You may study, solve assignment online but for exam even if it is online, you have to appear before a university appointed study centre.

      Unfortunately, India's none of the university has presence for MCA/ M.Sc. IT in Gambia
      You may apply for admission but once in a year you have to come to India or you may opt National Open University of Nigeria
      It offers M.Sc. IT

      Delete
    5. They can say whatever they want to say. What is the difference between study centre and service provider?
      Any centre who is accepting admission on behalf of the LPU and conducting exam is study centre and LPU is a private university so it cannot offer any course outside its main campus. Hence the admission taken directly at university and degree obtained by exam centre at main campus only stands valid for government job as well as higher studies. For private job it may or may not matter.
      Do not listen them and apply directly to the university and retain all proofs including your examination hall ticket where cente is clearly mentioned

    6. If you do your PG directly from the university then you are eligible for government job.

    7. That does not matter. LPU has lateral entry and if your qualification matches to the requirement for lateral entry, you can.
      LPU is a recognized but private university so it cannot offer any courses (even in distance mode) outside its campus. In that case, if you complete your degree directly through LPU (not through study centre) then your degree stands valid for government job also. No need to worry, just take precaution and go ahead.

    8. Hi,
      It is a private but recognized university. As per UGC directive, a private university cannot offer a course outside its campus so if you complete the degree from its main campus in Punjab, it is valid.

      About lateral entry, if your qualification is as per the requirement, it is valid.

      Please read my following blogpost for more details

    1. Don Bosco is another degree scamster and violating various norms
      so avoid it
      Quality wise also it is not good enough
      there are many universities like Pondicherry, Bharti Vidyapeeth, Madras University who offer distance learning MBAs, prefer them

    1. NIBM is not an approved institute and as per UGC directive, any university cannot appoint a private institute to offer its course
      So avoid it.
      AIMA membership does not grant recognition and IAO is not an accrediting agency. one of such body is AACSB

      You can opt MBA from IGNOU which has study centre in Vietnam in colloboration with Hanoi Open University

    1. Hi,
      You can apply to same university from where you have completed your first and second year degree.
      Also, you have not told me your subjects (B.Com, B.Sc. (Non practical), B.Sc. (Practical subjects like PCM, CBZ) or BA etc. You have also not told your location.

      You can apply to University of Madras or Annamalai University for Lateral entry to 3rd year degree programmes. Where you can appear for exam next year May and complete the exam. University of Madras has exam centre in every major city in India as well as abroad.

  27. Need clarification on territorial jurisdiction ... If a university offers a degree in distance mode (private university) I mean the university in Shillong for student in Tamil Nadu who joined the degree directly from university..is it violation of territorial jurisdiction as per ugc.. The private university if it had erstwhile dec- ugc- aicte approval to conduct distance programmes.. Then what is the status of the degree obtained by the student in Tamil Nadu ... How does any one distinguish between a guy directly joined from university main campus n study centre in different cities, as on any exam mark sheets or certificates the study centre is not mentioned?

    1. Yes, it is a violation.
      See, private universities are given authority to offer course only in their campus, even if it is distance mode.
      UGC-AICTE and DEC clearly mentioned this while granting them approval. Your second question is completely valid. What happens that when people apply for different government job with a degree from a private universities, such commissions like state public service commissions, IBPS ask them to bring letter from UGC and university confirming that the degree is not the violation. UGC has messed it up completely. In my view, private universities should not be allowed to offer distance education for initial 10 years. Let them first prove their ability in conventional mode and then only allow them to enter into ODL system.

    1. Hi Vijay,

      You have already done damage to your career.
      For becoming IAS, you need to be a graduate from a recognized university and need to clear Civil Services Prelims and Main. The degree must be of minimum 3 years as UGC has put ban on one sitting degree since 1996.
      Further, the degree must be approved by DEC earlier and now by UGC DEB. The degree must be awarded as per the UGC standard of awarding degree.
      As you must be aware, CMJ's all degree on hold and disapporved.

      The maximum age limit to appear for civil services prelims is 29 years for open category. If you have time, pursue your graduation through a central or state university (do not opt private and deemed university).
      You can also start preparation for KPSC (Karnataka Public Service Commission) which will not make you IPS but will make you KPS (Karnataka Police Services) where the maximum position will be ACP / ASP (Assistant Commissioner of Police/ Assistant Superintendent of the Police) and lowest will be Police Sub Inspector.

      You are planning for a position of a law protector and you self started the first phase by buying degree, this is really sad (may be you were not aware)

      If you have completed first and second year of degree from CMJ, check with Annamalai University if they can give you entry into third year under lateral scheme of entry. On the basis, your degree stands valid. As per the recent notification from UGC, a state university can offer courses anywhere in the country.

    1. Why don't you opt PhD instead? If you have done M.Sc. or M. Phil and gets approval for admission to PhD you do not need to be on campus full time, there are many universities offer the same. Check IGNOU, they also offer mathematics which is available for working professionals only

  34. Dear Govind Sir
    My name is Pawan and I am from Jammu and Kashmir.There is very big confusion in my life regarding my education system. I am B.Sc (IT) -2009 pass out Graduate from PTU (DEP) from Jammu after that I have completed my M.A. Sociology from (IGNOU). Now J&K Government not consider my B.Sc (IT) degree valid for Govt. Job and they also they also said that your IGNOU M.A. sociology Degree also invalid and have no value. That means I waisted my 2 precious years for the completion of my MA Degree. Beside this we all know that PTU is a UGC-DEC-AICTE Recognized University. Dear Sir Please suggest me what is my future in Jammu & Kashmir ? J&K SSRB (Recruitment Board) didn't consider me for achieving Government Jobs. Why IGNOU gives me further admission for higher studies ??.. I think If My IGNOU M.A. Degree is valid that means my B.Sc (IT) is also valid. I don't know what wrong with Jammu & Kashmir Government. Even they didn't follow UGC norms and rules. No education uniqueness in Jammu and Kashmir as per rest of Indian Education system because of this near about 30,000 Distance Education Students suffers badly. Sir if you have any suggestion regarding this matter please suggest me.
