Should I opt degrees from The Global open University Nagaland?

Well,

One of the reader posted this question in my blog. I thought instead of replying there, I should write this in a separate blog post


Respected Sir,
I have read your entire Blog & posts, I really appreciate the Hard work for replying each and every queries and Thanking you for giving such precious part of your TIME to such Students from all over The INDIA.
I am really fascinated by your Research & the knowledge that you have gained for each and every Universities,campus of our entire educational system.
Your blog covers almost every "Uncertified Universities" of our country and I hope it will be very helpful to every Students from each and every corner , I have gone Thoroughly each and every lines of your post and above queries.
Your work has really pursued me.
Amongst the given list(Name of the Universities) in the above every one talked about their queries and it almost covered all the given names in the Above.
But at this point I assure you that people have missed one point or might be they just got their answers of what they were curious to know about.
In your Above post, Sir you wrote that not to be confused with GOU & TGOU,
No one talked on this topic and after all students are now aware with each an every Names from the above listed.
So,
1.what is your opinion about TGOU(Nagaland) though it is UGC recog.?
2.what if students already got their degrees,do the degrees will really help them getting jobs?
3.As TGOU also does not provide theirs results online,what is the current status of the University?Should the students be aware of TGOU?
4.As the university provides postgraduate & undergraduate courses, does the students who really opt their degrees from TGOU does not get placed in any companies or any Govt. jobs?
The main Motive of the Open Universities was to provide Education and facilities to those students who cant afford the rates of the renowned Universities of INDIA.
And now a days its a Tradition who does not have a financial problems usually target the Open Universities for their degrees, for this reason the forgery has increased and this act has affected the students future who are from lower class family(Having financial problems).
5.Does it really mean students who got their degrees from open Universities does not get placed in front of the renowned universities?
It means students who dint get any opportunity will never get the opportunity !!!
Please Don't take it personally its just a common man who has just put his visions in front of You Sir.

My reply stand as follows:

Thanks a lot for reading my blog, analysing and putting question forward. I allow most of the comments to be visible on my blog post and I am open for questions and criticism. I do not publish the comments written without any knowledge, without cross verifying the fact and which contains advertisement. Somebody commented the previous day that "You think only you are only right and only your knowledge is right and rest all are wrong", somebody else wrote that my blogs are with biased about distance engineering even YCMOU offers it (I think that person should visit official YCMOU website. It used to offer but after AICTE directives which came in 2010 that it does not grant recognition to distance learning engineering qualification, all the good universities withdrew it, including IGNOU however the qualifications earned till date stands valid. I did not publish such nasty comments which are illogical and not at all related to the content of my blog).

You have written a matured comment and I would love to reply on the points you have raised.

Let me reply your important points

In your Above post, Sir you wrote that not to be confused with GOU & TGOU,
Well, I have mentioned in my post about Global Open University (no doubt, it is a fake university and even offering fake medical degrees for money), well about TGOU it is a PPP (Public i.e. Government, Private partnership open university hence recognized but in current scenario, it is restricted to offer degree courses.

TGOU
The Global Open University, Nagaland is a state open University in Nagaland. When it was established, it had recognition from DEC and of course it is a private university. However, DEC withdrew its recognition after 2010 hence any qualification obtained between 2011 to 2013 from TGOU stands non-recognized for public sector job.

However the scene changed in 2013 when due to lack of transparency in work and corruption, DEC who was under IGNOU dissolved and UGC took charge over granting approval of distance learning degree courses of all central, state and private universities. It also made mandatory to take approval from separate bodies like AICTE, NCTE, PCI, CCIM etc to run courses falling under their ambit.
UGC issued a fresh guideline in June 27, 2013 where it clearly mentioned that a central university can offer course all over India, a state university can offer course as per the jurisdiction mentioned in their respective universities Act and a private and deemed university can offer courses only in the city where they are situated.


Now let me take your question one by one
1. What is your opinion about TGOU(Nagaland) though it is UGC recognized?
About recognition, I have already told you above.
Although it is a UGC recognized university, it is a private university. It cannot offer any course outside the city in Nagaland where its campus is located.
It is
The Global Open University
Opposite Railway Station
Dimapur 797112, Nagaland

and

The Global Open University Nagaland
Opp. Veterinary Hospital
Pezielietsie Colony
Kohima - 797001, Nagaland


hence, if any students take admission directly to the university (they must retain the proof of the DD, form filled) and appear for exam at any of the centre above in Nagaland, their qualifications stands valid.


2.what if students already got their degrees,do the degrees will really help them getting jobs?
I have already given part answer of this above. About getting job, if they have completed the degree upto 2010, they should not face getting job in government sector. For private sector, it depends on case to case basis. Few organisations do not prefer Open University degree and thats too from a university from Nagaland, may create issue. Few organisations have list of the universities from where  they accept candidates from the list of universities only. Further, apart from degree, there are certain other factors for getting a job in private sectors.


3.As TGOU also does not provide theirs results online,what is the current status of the University?Should the students be aware of TGOU?
I have already given answer above. If students cannot appear for exam at Nagaland campus, they must not opt this university.
Let me share a personal experience. When this university launched, it was fully approved and thousands of students appeared for exam from this university. This university did not have and I believe still do not have proper infrastructure in place and they lost student's project, their answer sheet and students waited almost 2 years for their mark sheet. Despite of the fact that on official website they students declared as passed the subject. Later DEC found that the university is poor in infrastructure and need to have permanent staff as well as proper study materials. However like KSOU and many other private universities, money bugs have bitten it. UGC has strictly disalloawed any universities to offer courses through franchisee i.e. private person as a study centre. The university must have their own employee and centre. However TGOU offered local agencies franchisee to offer its courses. One such example is IPMS. 


4.As the university provides postgraduate & undergraduate courses, does the students who really opt their degrees from TGOU does not get placed in any companies or any Govt. jobs?
I have already replied above about this question.


he main Motive of the Open Universities was to provide Education and facilities to those students who cant afford the rates of the renowned Universities of INDIA.
And now a days its a Tradition who does not have a financial problems usually target the Open Universities for their degrees, for this reason the forgery has increased and this act has affected the students future who are from lower class family(Having financial problems).
5.Does it really mean students who got their degrees from open Universities does not get placed in front of the renowned universities?
Not at all, in fact passing a degree from IGNOU is 10 times tougher than passing degree from University of Mumbai. Even YCMOU, VMKOU etc. are working hard to provide quality education. However many private and deemed universities are involved in degree scam and recently we have seen the problem faced by CMJ, EIILM, MGU and so on. 
See, people target easy universities who provides degree without hard work. Due to this, many innocent students become victims.
in my blog, I get many queries and it gives me pain when many say they just need a degree. Same about those who are teachers. I disagree with the point that those who are not from the best universities never get the job. Knowledge can come from all direction and let it come. Knowledge is your property and nobody can take it. People are there who want to buy everything including degrees but people are there who are honest too. so you need not to worry.
If you have already completed your qualifications from TGOU, you need not to worry. Your communication skills are much better than those from conventional universities and at par with the someone who deserve to be called as a student from regular stream.
I hope i have answered all the query you have and also to the people who have query about validity of qualification from TGOU, Nagaland.

Recent update:
TGOU does not have DEB approval after 2008-09 period now even if it offers courses within Nagaland, such courses stands invalid. Being an open university, it cannot offer full time course either.

  1. Dear Govindji,
    Thank you for this post on TGOU. I am a student of TGOU and now I am concerned about its validity since I appear for exam in Gujarat centre.

    I would like you to have a second though over the examination centre issue. Earlier TGOU was a private university. But after the UGC issued notice that private universities cannot offer distance courses outside the state/city, the management of TGOU quickly surrendered their Part to the State Government of Nagaland; an amendment act of TGOU was passed 2 or 3 years ago and the university's status was transferred from Private university to State Government University. (The Amendment Act was published in the Government Gazette).
    Govindji, now that TGOU has become a state government university, can't it allow examination centres in other states (like Gujarat)? UGC directions does allow. What do you say?

    Thanks.
    With regards.

    1. Hi,
      A private university cannot be transferred as a state university and it is never done.
      TGOU's recognition is valid upto 2012 however they fought a case in the court and won case against DEC
      Here, the court seems to be ignorant while giving verdict that DEC has been dissolved.
      Even if has got DEC approval, it has to go by UGC's new guideline on distance education. It says a private university cannot offer any course outside its campus. So its qualifications stands invalid for higher education (only qualifications got after 2012). For private job, employer may or may not accept TGOU qualifications. UGC direction does not allow.

      I always urge students to pursue course from a central university. Please refer

    2. Govindji Hello again!
      Following will prove that TGOU is now a State Government University and not a Private University.
      The websites of TGOU now-a-days introduces itself as "A Government of Nagaland undertaking established under The Global Open University Act 2006". "The Global Open University Nagaland has been declared as a State University vide The Global Open University Nagaland (Amendment) Act 2011"
      Hope this clarifies why TGOU holds examinations even outside Nagaland state.
      Awaiting your comment.
      Thanks.

    7. (DATE–16– AUGUST –2013) : In a recent order of the hon'ble High Court Guwahati, which has its jurisdiction over Nagaland state also, opined from the evidences that the DEC had not granted recognition to TGOU arbitrarily without any solid reason. This was clearly a case of Discrimination. The court ordered the DEC to extend the recognition of TGOU from 02-06-2009 onwards till the date of inspection by the committee. And to publish on its website within one month of the extension of the recognition.

      Court Order : (Page No. 7)

  2. Hi, does state universities have the power to run distance courses outside their state jurisdiction boundary?
    Recently completed online course from N.L.U (National Law University, Delhi) and WWF, India collaborated course on P.G.D.U.E.M.L (Post Graduate Diploma in Urban Environmental Management and Law) online. My examination was online and whether such online courses in India is recognized or not? Also N.L.U. Being a state university, can they run online distance program across India?

    1. Hi,
      Good question. Let me clarify one by one
      1. State universities can offer courses on the basis of territorial jurisdiction mentioned in their respective Act.
      2. Online exam is valid if it is taken at the university only with the supervision of university staff. Any exam taken at public place on personal computer stands invalid.
      3. This qualification may not be valid for public sector job but you may not find difficulty to get private sector job, including job in NGO.
      They have to take approval from DEB of UGC to run courses all over India and same thing should have been mentioned in their Act also

      Delete
    2. Thanks for your prompt reply. Since DEC has rightly been abolished so the distance learning management in our country now rests on UGC. I think deemed and private universities should be stopped in running distance courses altogether in our country, although some universities private universities offer good quality distance education with proper monitoring mechanism, but some are not doing so. State universities also should be checked upon and monitored , recent example of annamalai university malpractices raises questions on distance education run by the university. In this situation, people are looking for answers and i thing best way to tackle this problem is by doing distance courses through central universities only.
      Hope UGC will come up with stringent management of distance education in our country.

    5. Your degree stands valid as
      1. TGOU was recognized for the period
      2. The issue of territorial jurisdiction was not there at that time

      You may retain DEC circular copy and produce during interview

Can you send me any evidential prove that the issue of territorial jursdiction was not there at that time... thank you.

    7. Hi,
      you can make print out of the official notification of then DEC from following link
      http://www.dec.ac.in/Doc/LetterUGC-AICTE&DEC.pdf

      Then uGC changed the decision in 2012 and did not allow state universities to offer course beyond their state. Please read following:
      http://www.ugc.ac.in/deb/notices/Notification-TJ.pdf

      The final decision applicable from June 2013 onwards is:
      http://speakhr.blogspot.in/2013/06/ugc-has-issued-fresh-guideline-on.html

      So, the clear thing is, till 2012 the territorial jurisdiction was not applicable for distance education however appointing franchisee to offer degree was also not allowed.

      You may make print of above and keep it with you.

  3. what about MPhil (2008-2009) , from TGOU , is this valid for teaching profession
    ?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi,
      M.Phil from that particular period had DEC recognition however for teaching, one must qualify as per the UGC regulations on minimum qualification for appointment 2010
      please refer
      http://www.ugc.ac.in/oldpdf/regulations/englishgazette.pdf
      These are
      For non management subject, one should be at least 55% with NET/ SET lecturership qualified
      For management, minimum 60% in post graduation i.e. MBA/ MHRM and must have been qualified for lecturership in NET/ SET
      However if you have qualified Ph.D degree as per the regulation of 2009, you are exempted from NET / SET
      So UGC has not given any specific exemption to M.Phil holder
      I hope this answer your query

  4. sir , i would like to ask you few more doubts i hope you will answer them .

    1. sir as i told u that i had done my graduation from tgou in ba history(hons) in 2007 june-2010 june session, but the dec recognition was only for 2008-2009 , as i have my ssc cgl and ibps interview ahead will they consider my degree ??
    as u said earlier that retain a copy of dec for interview but wont the ssc people will be looking the current status and rules regulation of ugc??

    2.sir i enrolled myself in their delhi head office but in my marksheet and degree its not mentioned delhi anywhere its all dimapur , so by looking at the degree or marksheet how could anyone know from where i have taken the exam ?
    and plus i gave my 1st n 2nd year both in 2009 dec n my 3rd year in 2010 june,sir is this acceptable by ssc??

    3.after completing my degree , to verify it,i took admission in ma (private) in rajasthan university and i was enrolled and i cleared my 1st year by which i thought my degree is valid as state university is admitting me in its course.

    thank you sir

    1. Hi,
      Let me reply answers
      1. They should consider as when you pursued the programme, it had recognition.
      They will look current status only if the degree is obtained recently. Since you have passed in the past, it will not be applicable in your case. For safer side, please file RTI to ministry of HRD as well as UGC
      2. The IBPS or interviewing body may ask you question that how you completed the degree of a Nagaland based institute. In that case you can tell them that you have taken admission through post and they conducted exam at Delhi and you did not apply through any study centre. You may retain photocopy of the DD, exam form sent to them. Every university has different norms to allow to keep term (ATKT) or completing degree. Therefore, the universities, board where you apply for education and job see whether you have spent minimum 3 year for the degree (it does not matter even if you appear for all exam in a single year after completion of minimum 3 years duration). So do not worry. SSC will accept it. They may ask you to bring letter from the university stating that this is not the one sitting degree (and in your migration certificate, it must have been mentioned- the duration of your admission and completion)
      3. For such checking always enroll in a state or central university. Private university allow anybody to take admission for money. You should have applied to IGNOU or Delhi University. Anyway, I believe your degree is genuine.
      4.You need not to worry. Apart from SSC also apply to UPSC Civil Services and other services prelims.
      The university is correct. Although the high court judgment is incomplete and judge has done so without considering all the facts, it is working in your as well as TGOU's favour. You should relax and apply. Just collect as much as document required. Your career is safe.

      Delete
  5. Dear Govindji,
    Could you please help us by writing a strong letter to TGOU authorities, UGC, MHRD and DEB for the following reformations:
    1. To stop the practice of taking money from students to allow copying in the examination halls.
    2. To immediately close the examination centres set up at Private Coaching Classes and Computer Training Institutes who are the kings of malpractices.
    3. To establish examination centres (provided if they are legally allowed) in others states only at Recognised University and Departments.

    Govindji, also please put their replies on this blog for the general public to read. I appreciate how to exposed other universities earlier and forced them to reply you. This times its turn of TGOU to reform or quit.
    Thanks.

    1. Yes, but at that time, there was no question of territorial jurisdiction hence the degree should stand valid however since DEC approval has expired, the degree stand non recognized
      See, accepting and not accepting is based on banks. I feel your degree still should be termed as valid. As recently, TGOU has knocked the door and as per high court decision, the degree is valid.

    1. Hi,
      Few MNCs do not prefer a distance learner and not somebody from Open University however if you have skill and talent they want you may find other companies who do not have such criteria.

      For Higher education, the matter is subjudice now but due to lack of DEB approval, you may not get admission for higher studies.
      The same condition apply for government job too. The last years DEV regulation says that private universities cannot offer any courses outside its campus and TGOU is a private university.
      If you have cleared your degree by 2009 Dec maximum, the degree stands valid

    (DATE–16– AUGUST –2013) : In a recent order of the hon'ble High Court Guwahati, which has its jurisdiction over Nagaland state also, opined from the evidences that the DEC had not granted recognition to TGOU arbitrarily without any solid reason. This was clearly a case of Discrimination. The court ordered the DEC to extend the recognition of TGOU from 02-06-2009 onwards till the date of inspection by the committee. And to publish on its website within one month of the extension of the recognition

    1. The high court did not had enough knowledge while giving judgment.
      Since DEC approval had expired in 2008-09 and dEC had suggested the university to improve infrastructure, TGOU did not do it. They had even misplaced students assessment papers and projects.
      The degree is not valid.

    1. You should apply to its office in either Delhi or Nagaland. Since you have already get a degree from Delhi office, the certificate is authentic. for validity, it may not be valid for public sector job as DEC has approved only for 2008-09

  24. student looking for helpJuly 16, 2014 at 2:15 PM

    hello sir,
    i had made a rti regarding the the global open university nagaland in ugc , and the reply which i got is that the global open university nagaland is recognized by ugc for providing degree at regular mode only that too in its main campus.
    2. ugc forwarded my rti application to dec and i got a reply from them stating that dec had given approval for the period of 2008 only for 1 year.
    therefore i went to dec office to clarify , n the regional director told me that only those students who have enrolled in the year 2008 , only degree of those students stands valid only by fulfilling the criteria of dec.i.e 3 years spend n paper in nagaland n dec approval

    sir now my question is ;-
    what about those students who are enrolled in 2007 , according to dec they said its not valid. as you have been saying that those who have completed till 2010 stands valid. but according to dec in the year 2007 it doesnt had any approval. so it stands invalid for govt job n for pvt its upto the company.
    2.even the court has given its verdict , but ugc or dec has not updated that on its site.it has been almost 8 months yet no sign of update.

    3. what is the difference between correspondence and open degree, more or else are they not the same thing.??

    sir it will be a great help if you can clarify a bit of more on the dec recognition thing if they are saying its 2008 then what does it mean ?? those who enrolled in 2008 or the earlier student will also be considered??

    i will be waiting for your reply ?? if you want i can mail you my rti copy ? may i have ur email id for that. you can msg me on niharikameena17@gmail.com

    1. Hi,
      This is the whole problem with the DEC and UGC. I have written the post carefully.
      Yes, it is true that DEC had given approval for 2008-09. Therefore all the students enrolled on this year has the degree valid. Student should not be held responsible if the university does not get DEC or DEB approval for subsequent year.

      Earlier students will not be considered.
      Please mail me your RTI copy

  28. what about my Bcom
    My B'com (Hons) admission is 2008 June. Exam Center Meerut - UP for all) from TGOU
    1st Year exam: June 2010
    2nd Yeat exam: June 2010
    3rd year exam: June 2011

    We took every exam at centers with so many students. If my B'com is valid atleas I can pursue MBA from other university. This fake degree news us really painful. ALL DEGREES ARE NOT FAKE. i appeared in Evey exam and I still have the study material. I still have I receipt (Exam fee) from TGOU. NOT every degree is fake. Police needs to verify again. Arrest doesn't proof TGOU Is fake until proven guilty. We didnt pay money for Degree and took exams. Lets wait and watch. TGOU is listed under UCG website and we cant call it fake until we have a final hearing.

    There is some misunderstanding I guess. There may be some other institutes providing fake degree by the name of TGOU.

    Please tell me about my B'COM.

    Thats why these TGOU people are not responding to my Emails. I am in contact with the lady at TGOU Nagaland ofice, she told me to send her my MBA mark sheets with ID proof. I did send her emails with documents 4 times, but no response. I talked to her 5 times every time she said Internet is down. I sent INR 1000 draft 3 months ago to obtain my MBA Degree. THESE TGOU people are playing with our life,

    1. TGOU is a complete mess. Now the VC has been arrested for selling backdated degrees. I know all degrees are not fake but they offered the degree after 2009 when they were not authorised. This has created another mess. B.Com is definitely not valid for government jobs, but for higher education, if an institute do not catch the things about territorial jurisdiction, you are safe.
      I suggest you to use RTI to get the degree also file a complaint at following:

    http://www.hindustantimes.com/bathinda/fake-degrees-owners-of-patiala-mansa-centres-held/article1-1351209.aspx

    Fake degree racket: Owners of Patiala, Mansa centres held.

    Three owners of two educational centres in Patiala and Mansa districts were arrested on Monday for issuing fake degrees of Nagaland-based Global Open University.


    The accused have been identified as Sandeep Bahari and Vivek Gupta, owners of Lotus education society in Patiala, and Vineet Goyal of Bhai Gurudas education centre in Mansa.

    "More than 3,000 fake degrees of Global Open University have been issued by the Patiala-based education centre," senior superintendent of police (SSP), Mansa, Bhupinder Singh Khattra told reporters. More than 500 fake degrees were issued to candidates from Mansa.

    "The accused have confessed that they charged whopping amount from students for these degrees," he said.
    The SSP said the owners of Lotus Education Society had a plan to open a varsity in Nagaland but it could not materialise.
    The police claim that more than 200 centres operating across the country were issuing fake degrees of the Nagaland-based varsity.

    On being asked about the details of Mansa students, who have been issued fake degrees, the SSP said there was no mention of their residential address in the records.

    J&K teacher has degree, but can't write essay on cow

    SHO Dalbeer Singh, who is investigating the case, revealed that a J&K school teacher, who failed to write an essay on cow, has got a commerce degree from Global Open University. "We hope to catch many more such beneficiaries," said the SHO. The police, however, have failed to get a list of education centres in Mansa. The police blame the University Grants Commission for not giving them the list of authorised education centres in the district.

    sir, I am applying for jobs in DU and other government universities. am i eligible for public sector jobs?

  37. Global Univ refutes Punjab police allegation of ‘fake degree racket’

    April 7, 2015
    Morung Express News
    Dimapur | April 7

    The Global Open University, Nagaland (TGOUN) has vehemently refuted allegation of a fake degree racket being run by the university through its counseling centers and franchises which appeared recently in a national daily.

    Hindustan Times on April 5 published a report wherein Mansa Police, Punjab alleged that Nagaland Global University had issued more than 30,000 fake degrees of graduate and postgraduate courses for prices ranging between Rs 9,000 and Rs 35, 000 each. It said Punjab police had arrested the university’s pro-chancellor Priya Ranjan Trivedi, and 3 other alleged accomplices.The scam came to light when Mansa resident Tarlochan Singh, who had a degree from this university applied for a Hindustan Petroleum (HP) gas agency, the daily reported.

    Following the allegation, TGOUN on Tuesday furnished documents and university verification records to local media maintaining innocence. In a rejoinder, Vice-Chancellor Dr HN Dutta clarified that fraudulent selling of forged/fake certificate in the name of TGOUN was ‘out of question’ and were committed by imposters at Kolkota and Patiala. It alleged that a society named ‘Lotus Education Society,’ Patiala has been indulging in selling fake certificates in the name of the university.

    In this connection, the university had filed an FIR at Diphupar Police Station and subsequently arrested one Deepak Chatha from Patiala while 2 other suspects, Sandeep Bahri and Sikandra Singh were absconding. It pointed out that the university, since inception, had no such records of charging fees for Bachelor of Arts and M Phil Degree as alleged, while adding that the university had already discontinued M. Phil course in pursuance of the UGC directive since 2009.

    The VC disclosed that the same ‘bogus’ Lotus Education Society had applied for establishment of Aaron University in Nagaland during 2014 to which the Naga Students Federation and Naga Students Union had intervened.

    With a view to stop such fake degree scams, the VC said he had submitted a representation to the DIG, Punjab to constitute a high level committee for thorough probe on the allegation and nab those involved. According to TGOUN a team of Punjab Police sent by SSP Mansa had reportedly arrived in Dimapur and visited the Global Open University to investigate the allegation. It informed that it will provide all relevant documents and information related to the issue and was committed to root out such crimes.

  48. hi Govind,

    My cousin did his M.Sc. from TGOUN... enrolled in 2009.. gave exams in 2010 June and 2011 Dec... Marksheets received for both years... but the Degree certificate is of 17th Aug 2012. It was a direct enrollment in Delhi Office, and exams given in Mumbai. No agency involved.... Going by the current scenario, is this degree even valid... also can you suggest any resource from where we could get this degree verified. He is applying for a job overseas so verification is a must.
