    1. VMJ has never got such award. In fact it has not submitted document for UGC's inspection.
      Following link will clarify your query
      http://speakhr.blogspot.in/2013/01/truth-of-cmj-and-such-other-private.html

      As of now this course is valid as nobody has dragged CMJ to court but it can face de-recognition any time.

      Play safe. Easier things are always not good. Hard work is.

    1. It is absolutely Fine. Your degree is valid for any higher education and job. KSOU is a state government university and approved. The issue is only about its engineering degrees and franchising study centre

    1. Hi Neel,
      No worries and thanks a lot for you appreciation.

      Please find answer

      1) How to go about it?From where should he do 12th and then Degree so its a valid one?
      Your friend can opt for Sr. Secondary 10+2 from NIOS. It is valid. He can complete it on this October and then he can enroll in B.Sc. Computer Science, B.Sc. IT both full time and distance from any universities including University of Mumbai, University of Madras and so on.
      Alternatively, he can do BPP (Bachelor's Preparatory Programme which is meant for those who have completed 18 years but does not have formal background of education, can read and write and want to pursue graduation. Please note that BPP is not a substitute of 10+2 however degree obtained through this system also stands equally valid). He can do it from
      IGNOU- however after BPP he can do only BA, B.Com and BTS from there. He cannot do BCA or B.Sc.
      2. Tamil Nadu Open University

      3. Kakatiya University

      All of them have exam centre all over India

      I suggest to do 10+2 from NIOS then BCA from IGNOU, Madras, Mumbai, Annamalai and other universities.


      2)He is currently on Job so cannot go for any Regular studies so Please suggest accordingly?
      Already replied above. He can do it in distance mode

      3)As you know Companies sometimes sends Abroad for work/Training,Will he be able to Apply for Work Visa after completion from those Institutes?
      Yes, He can as all of the above are government universities and will never face nonrecognition. So it is safe

    1. Hi
      I do not put lot of tension and worry.
      You choose easier way to get a degree, perhaps afraid to do hard work or you got misguided.

      Anyway, as of now this degree stands valid. You have already completed 3 years, complete entire things and get rid off from it. After that enroll yourself in a state/ central or other good universities.

      Studying MBA from top institutes and good engineering colleges will definitely help you in your career after your degree from CMJ
      So do not worry.

      To know truth of CMJ, refer following link

    3. Hi Vishnu,

      As of it is not de-recognized. SO you need not to worry.
      Go ahead and complete the degree as it will be foolishness to start graduation afresh and to take 4 years to complete.
      The future depend on various factor so let us not put stress about it. You focus on present and to take corrective measure.

      Once you will be get out from this degree selling shop, you will get relief and once you complete MBA from good institute and settle in the job, people will look into your MBA not more into your graduation.

      So without worrying for it, complete your graduation first.

      Was the reason that you can easily get degree encouraged you to take admission in this university?

    1. Hi

      Please find my answer as follows
      1.As of now, qualification from CMJ University (only full time courses, no distance learning) are valid for government job. They are issuing you full time degree course under name of industry integrated (by making fool to everybody) so it may stand valid for government job. But in future, likely that this institute may face de-recognition.

      2. If your friend want to buy degree then fine he can go ahead then asking this question does not arise at all. Buyers like you and your friends are there so sellers of degree like EIILM, ADTU, CMJ, MG University Meghalaya exists. Your friend could start graduation 3 years back too as through various universities in distance mode, it hardly costs 2000 per year including all expenses and I think even for the poorest person it is affordable by doing odd job. These are just excuses.
      Genious people do not try to buy education, smart people- of course do.
      Sorry, my tone may seem harsher but it is truth.
      Risk of loosing job and all depend on various factors.
      His IGNOU's degree will remain forever valid but if he do masters degree from IGNOU on the basis of CMJ's degree and if CMJ University faces de-recognition, his masters degree shoould automatically stand as invalid

      I do not recommend this institute at all if you want a safe career ahead and if you are a true knowledge seeker and want to learn from the graduation/ PG you are pursuing.
      If you just want to buy degree then go ahead and buy it

  6. Hello,

    Could you please advice that out of below university which one should I choose to go for MBA IT,

    1.www.manavbhartiuniversity.edu.in
    2.www.cmjuniversity.edu.in
    3.www.mgu.edu.in

    I am expecting promotion or probably look for another job in different IT organization so university recognition is very important. I have been told that www.mgu.edu.in would be best and will not make effort on my pocket.

    Appreciate if you could shed some light on it and advise to choose which out of three.

    Thanks,

      You may refer following link

      None of these institute's MBA will help you for promotion or better job after changing

      Why do not you go for MBA in IT/ System from University of Madras or in other specialisation from there or from Pondicherry University?
      It will cost you hardly 50,000 all inclusive

      If you are from Mumbai, better choose Executive Part time MBA from NMIMS. This will be costly but will add lot of value

  8. Hello Govindji.
    First of all thanks for the tremendous effort of yours to guide us on the background of
    new universities. I am from Bangalore.
    I am doing a research for my friend on CMJ university(meghalaya) and EIILM university.
    From what I see.. It seems that both the universities are recognized as private under UGC.Am I
    correct?
    These two universities can only offer regular courses to students only from main campus.
    Am I correct?
    All the offshore campuses existing outside thier respective state are fake.Am I correct?

    The distance education of CMJ and EIILM univ are not approved and not valid at all. Am I correct?

    My friend got a job in Cognizant,passed through the interview and was asked to submit degree certificate
    for verification. He submitted B.E degree certificate from some Rajasthan univ(I dont recall the
    name). On his joining date, Cognizant told him that the university couldn,t be verified and claimed
    that it was fake and removed him from training.

    All my friend wants is a degree. Pobably a B.com. I dont think he cares for knowledge. He only wants
    a degree to get a job.

    Also, most of these degrees(From private universites, distance edu etc) can only get you a job in small companies. Am I correct?
    Is it possible to apply for Government jobs with such degrees?
    Thanks for the effort.waiting for reply.

    1. Hi,

      Good question and point made

      From what I see.. It seems that both the universities are recognized as private under UGC.Am I correct?

      Yes, you are absolutely correct

      These two universities can only offer regular courses to students only from main campus.
      Am I correct?

      Yes, you are absolutely correct

      All the offshore campuses existing outside thier respective state are fake.Am I correct?

      Answer: Well, instead of calling it fake, I will use appropriate word, it is not allowed without prior permission from UGC hence UGC has not allowed any of these universities to start off campus hence they are involved in illegal activities.


      The distance education of CMJ and EIILM univ are not approved and not valid at all. Am I correct?
      Answer:Correct, DEC has not approved any of these institutes to offer distance learning programmes


      My friend got a job in Cognizant,passed through the interview and was asked to submit degree certificate
      for verification. He submitted B.E degree certificate from some Rajasthan univ(I dont recall the
      name). On his joining date, Cognizant told him that the university couldn,t be verified and claimed
      that it was fake and removed him from training.

      Answer: Valid point. See, the corporates have list of universities from where they accept the students and when name of such universities are not in their approved institute list, they do not accept such students. This is the whole thing I am trying to explain all degree buyers from such institute. You have explained it well.


      Also, most of these degrees(From private universites, distance edu etc) can only get you a job in small companies. Am I correct?
      Yes, absolutely correct. Even a professional small companies are now worried about the skill set they are hiring. Such fictitious money making institutes just loot the students nothing else.

      Is it possible to apply for Government jobs with such degrees?
      See, till they do not face any de-recognition, government will accept the degrees from such private universities but once they are de-recognized, government will not accept those qualification. For distance learner, first criteria is that such institute must be approved from DEC alongwith the condition that it must be from a UGC recognized institute. See the condition of private universities established through 2004 private universities Act of Chhatisgarh.
      Getting degrees from these private universities are like getting easier and cheaper illegal homes which always give you stress that one day government official and these home builder's nexus will end and they will demolish the building. You may save initial cost, time but it is always harmful.

      AICTE has banned on offering engineering courses in distance mode so do not do it, whoever offers. KSOU has already got a show cause notice for the same.
      As of now, you can do only AMIE and AMIETE in distance which is equivalent to BE/ B.Tech
      Wait for sometime as AICTE is planning to issue a guideline on distance learning engineering degree programme, then you will get much better choice

    1. Hi Manoj,

      Never do BCA/ MCA from there, you will end up loosing your money only. If you want to buy a degree without consideration from knowledge and value point of view, then it is different.

      University of Mumbai, Institute of Distance and Open Learning offers B.Sc. IT and B.Sc. Computer Science in distance mode.
      Eligibility is 10+2 with mathematics.

      If you do not have mathematics then opt BCA from University of Madras. It has 20 days compulsory training and also has exam centre in Mumbai.

    1. Hi Sanjiv,
      What I feel that your wife does not want to do it just for the namesake and she wants to do it to get knowledge and value addition to her.
      Assam Down Town University will easily give you degree but not the quality education. If you just need to get degree go ahead. Further, Assam Down Town is a private university and what is most suspicious that as soon immediately after its foundation it started offering distance learning programme

      If you are from Delhi, I strongly recommend MBA HCM (Executive- Evening programme) from Faculty of Management Studies, University of Delhi
      It is an excellent programme from knowledge, value, learning and all around prospective
      Refer following link:
      http://www.fms.edu/?q=node/27

      You may also opt MBA in HCM from IGNOU
      MBA in Hospital and Healthcare Management (MBAHHM)
      Minimum Duration: 2 Years
      Maximum Duration: 3 Years
      Course Fee: Rs. 275,000
      Minimum Age: No bar
      Maximum Age: No bar

      Eligibility:
      Graduation

      http://www.ignou.ac.in


      If you are not interested for MBA you can also Opt a PG Diploma from IGNOU
      Post-Graduate Diploma in Hospital and Health Management (PGDHHM)

    1. Hi Sangeeta,

      Sikkim Manipal University's distance education has been under scanner for bribing Distance Education Council (V. Rajasekharan Pillai who was ex IGNOU VC and IGNOU. DEC is an autonomous body under IGNOU which was meant to maintain standard and quality in education but it turned to be a corrupt body like our other councils like AICTE, PCI, UGC etc. Now CBI is investigating the case and V. Rajashekharan Pillai and DEC, SMU and PTU are other parties in this.

      Sikkim Manipal alone has made almost 2000 crore through distance education and there are many such institutes. This is the probable reason that DEC has not given approval to SMU this time. PTU however has won the court battle and allowed to offer (I mean sell) the degrees.

      Well, SMU is never a good option for MBA

      For Distance MBA you may opt following institutes:
      1. IDE, University of Madras
      2. Pondicherry University, DDE

      Both have exam centres in Mumbai. Refer their website. Admission will start from May

    1. Hi,

      I have well replied to your query above. BCA of Jaipur National University has no such widely acceptance in the corporate world and being a private university, doing degree course from there can be money loosing and riskier thing for you.
      What is the problem to do it from University of Mumbai or University of Madras? Is tougher exam and evaluation haunts you and are you in search of an easier and quick degree?

      In the corporate full time degrees (specially for IT) is preferred over distance learning.
      In this case
      University of Mumbai (only few colleges)
      University of Pune (Selected colleges)
      University of Madras
      Anna University
      JNTU
      BITS Pilani
      BITS Ranchi
      are most preferred institutes.
      First you need to complete graduation then think about MCA at later stage. Any graduate with mathematics at 10+2 or higher level are eligible for MCA
      Admission to full time MCA happens through state level entrance exam

    1. Sir,

      With due respect, why did you decide to take admission to CMJ University? Has its courses attracted you?
      If you have just taken admission, I advise you to immediately get admitted to your daughter in a university which can provide you a quality degree in Psychology.
      There are many like JNU, University of Delhi, University of Madras (B.Sc. Counselling Psychology), Annamalai University (B.Sc. Applied Psychology), University of Pune and so on.

      If you have already completed a year or more then continue.

      To reply your other query

      As of now, yes this university is recognized as a private university. UGC does not recognize any institute course wise. It recongize a university and except medical, pharmaceutical, engineering and management and technical education, rest all courses gets automatic recognition. For any courses in distance learning, an institute need to take recognition, approval separately from DEC.

      Yes, University is approved as of now.

      Any college can provide transcript so no need to worry. Transcript, you will need only for education abroad.

      As of now, all full time degree courses of CMJ is approved for Government job including Army.

      Thanks a lot for your appreciation.

    1. will the degree withstnd the background check veification process and will it be accepted by my organization.

    2. Will it help my growth

    3. even in case of a negative decision by university or supreme court later, will it affect my degree. because from what i have heard, even if a course or university is closed, the students are never affected.

    1. Hi Chan,

      Please see my reply

      1. If your organisation is selecting you on the basis of Ph.D, then yes. Background check will be done. Acceptance by your organisation depends on the fact that whether your organisation accept CMJ as that organisation's approved institute list (in most of the cases, it will not be)

      2. Since you have already published 3 research paper and even attended conference, you are already helping yourself. I do not believe that the CMJ guides have capability to judge a research. You can do it much better than them.

      3. Yes, it will affect your degree. Whoever has said that things to you- it is false. Please refer the case of CG Niji Vishwavidyalaya Sthapan Act 2004 which Supreme court termed as illegal so all the universities established also terms illegal. After that none of the institutes accepted the degree for higher programmes. visit http://www.ignou.ac.in and download common prospectus. It also says that students who have passed degrees from those universities are not eligible for IGNOU programmes.

      This whole is bloody money making game by selling degrees.

      Do not mind, but I feel that you also might not have satisfied with the way degrees awarded at CMJ.
      CMJ is not alone. There are almost 140 more such shops are there.

        My query is: Am I eligible to obtain that degree in less than 4 years of time? Is there any engineering institute which shall consider this diploma of AME of mine and provide me with a degree?
        Please enlighten me about this.

        1. Hi Rahul,
          First of all, although the AME is higher than a general graduation degree in terms of its content and quality, however DGCA never put efforts to force ministry of HRD and AIU for the same. Due to this, students face lot of problem. However on case to case basis institutes accept AME as equivalent to a 3 years Polytechnic Diploma. However if DGCA mention it as Diploma, you may apply to institutes accepting it.
          I request you to contact following institutes

          AICTE has banned any engineering programme in distance mode so do not prefer
          CMJ is another institute involved in degree scam and sooner or later will be exposed.
          This citation and all are just fool making tactics. This citation does not mean that AICTE has approved it.
          In private job, this institute will not hold any value and in government job, since it is not approved by DEC so not valid for that

          None of those institutes are good. Since you do not have a degree, you cannot do an MBA
          However you can apply for Diploma in Management from IGNOU

          Even if somebody claims to you that you can get an MBA basis of your Diploma, please note that the honourable Supreme Court has clearly laid down that without a bachelor's degree, one cannot do a post graduation and such degree stands invalid

        At present time if someone is looking for degree only(MBA, BBA or may be other management courses), which University you will recommend as far as recognizable parameters are concerned in corporate world such as BPO and telecoms.

        I have seen entire of your page saying about CMJU however request for put some more light from both aspects one who need in degree, may it is helping him...applying for any job which does not bother if you have good exp. and one who will apply for other regular courses afterwards, may be.

        1. I strictly do not like this kind of comments and the attitude.
          As an HR, for me, a person who cannot maintain ethics and cannot do hard work to earn a degree and want to do just for the namesake, how he/ she can really work and focus on it?
          If an individual prefer to get something through the stringent way (even a degree) then such individual definitely maintain quality throughout the work.

          Anyway, still to answer your question: You may choose and state government established university or a central government established university.

          There are state government universities who sells degrees (institutes in Bihar), some study centres of IGNOU and YCMOU (not the university, please note), Madurai Kamraj University etc

        1. Hi Minal,

          The whole comments (Negative or naked truth) is about the way CMJ selling its degree, making fool to government and people with nexus to UGC, state legislature and other regulating agencies who are biased to institutes not paying bribe to them.

          Coming back to your question:
          Your certificate is valid as of now so need to worry about its validity because you have done it in regular mode.
          Recognization- Yes, it is recognized from UGC as a private university however, in the corporate it is not recognized and now it is being exposed everyday. Recently somebody reported that Australian Embassy refused visa to a student who completed degree from this institute stating reason that this institute is not in their list (and it may happen with other countries too.

          As far as you are planning to do MBA in Mumbai, for that it remains valid as of now.
          You are doing another mistake by choosing UTSglobal and Assam Down Town.

          Better opt MBA from NMIMS (Executive MBA) or full time MMS from NMIMS, JBIMS, Welingkar (No distance PG Diploma)
          It will help you to save / make your career and also for a safer career ahead.

        1. Thanks for your valuable feedback sir. i want to clarify as u told CMJ doesn't hold value in the corporate also it is not recognized.

          It is a money making education shop who is selling degree it is risky to pursue any education from it. It has risk to be recognized any moment.

          CMJ will be acceptable for higher education subject to future condition that somebody does not file a case. as per UGC CMJ degree remains valid for higher studies but what after???

          somebody file a case in supreme court ? i have completed Bcom from cmj then so in that case if i am doing my MBA in mumbai from NMIMS, JBIMS or Welingkar with the huge fees will the my graduation

          degree be counted when i go for any interview after MBA. if may be in future CMj university recognized then my degree automatically stand as invalid & if i have completed my MBA from mentioned institute as u said your knowledge is more important

          than degree deciding your job in future however if cmj is recognized then what is the future will this affect to my MBA degree

          frankly speaking I dint get any clear picture till now Should i wait for few more months then i enroll for MBA. any decision will come? from parliament or from UGC. Please advise sir i m very much confused pls help me for my further education.

          That's the risk based on prior experience in Chhatisgarh Private Universities.

          If you wish to pursue full time cheaper MBA, you can opt to FMS, Delhi and Pondicherry University.
          Although cost of JBIMS is Rs. 1,00,000 (per annum) so for 2 years it is 2 Lakhs for entire course. Average Domestic Salary of JBIMS is INR 14.9 lakhs per annum which is 7 times of your cost of fee. (although getting admission to JBIMS is not easy, you have to secure top ranking and definitely above 98% in Mah MBA CET) so I do not think the fee is high. It is matter of proving yourself amongst the best.
          Welinkgkar's MMS fee will be also the same. Package will not be that as good as of JBIMS still it will be good.

          Now you have to determine what you want in your life.

          Degree from CMJ- No value whether you buy Assam Down Town University MBA or not you are going to get salary of around 7K per month

          So 7000X 12= 84000
          if you get 100% hike in second year= 1.68 Lakhs in second year

          So again if you get 100% hike in your job = 3.36 Lakhs

          So what you want, a easy way, no hard work and meagre salary or putting all efforts to get into institute like JBIMS to get 4 times more salary and good knowledge too.
          Even full time MBA from B grade institute does not even more than 10,000 per month.


          degree be counted when i go for any interview after MBA. if may be in future CMj university recognized then my degree automatically stand as invalid & if i have completed my MBA from mentioned institute as u said your knowledge is more important
          If you have MBA from top notch reputed institute, nobody will bother about your graduation degree. Your knowledge and MBA from such institute will take your care.

          than degree deciding your job in future however if cmj is recognized then what is the future will this affect to my MBA degree
          If during your MBA such direction comes from apex court, then definitely problem will arise but after passing MBA who cares


          Decision will never come proactively from government. In case of Chhatisgarh, government did not take any action. It was professor Yashpal who filed a public interest litigation in honourable supreme court.

          If you are talking about well known and reputed universities in USA, Canada, UK and Australia- They may not accept CMJ degrees as they prefer NAAC accredited A grade universities only.
          CMJ like universities in those counties who are there to make money may give you admission (like Tri valley university in US where all Indian students were arrested)

          2.Will the corporate companies in India will accept CMJ degree or not?
          No, the good company may not, average company, may accept

          3.Is there any value for this degree from CMJ
          As of now, approved so you can do higher studies from India but for fture no.
          CMJ is degree selling shop only with due approval from government.

          Few 4 years back, Tamil Nadu Government decided that none of the universities in Tamil Nadu will offer degree in non-formal/ open university system except the Tamil Nadu Open University. So Annamalai does not offer it. You have option to do it from TNOU and IGNOU

          About your second question: As far as the institute is trustworthy and not involved in degree scam (CMJ and other private universities are degree sellers whereas IGNOU, Anaamalai, Madras etc are still trustworthy) I do not mind to accept a degree holder from an Open University or non-formal system.
          For instances, I was in a leading healthcare and was heading overall recruitment and talent acquisition process. Many candidates from open universities like YCMOU and IGNOU. It was their hard earned degree. I valued their other qualities including experiences over qualification. They are still in the job, performing well. I think the best way to stop these degree sellers like MG University nd CMJ shillong is to stop considering college degree where it does not make compulsory by law (like lawyer, doctors etc)

          Distance learning engineering cannot be offered in distance mode.

        1. Hi,
          For this please refer my blog post on CMJ and also comments above
          http://speakhr.blogspot.in/2013/01/truth-of-cmj-and-such-other-private.html

          You may get admission in Canada to the university similar standard of CMJ who are private and has same motive i,.e. to sell degree and earn money but any reputed and ranked university will not accept CMJ's degree

          Here is example of requirement from McGill. McGill is a well known and very valuable institute
          MINIMUM CREDENTIALS REQUIRED:
          To be admitted to a McGill MASTERS program,
          you must have obtained one of the following:
          • Bachelor’s degree – awarded after four or five years of study
          • Bachelor’s degree – awarded after three years of study if the school awarding the degree has a current NAAC rating of “A” or higher
          • Master of Arts, Master of Science, Master of Education,
          Master of Commerce or Master of Business
          Administration - awarded after two years of study beyond
          a three year Bachelor’s degree if the school awarding the Bachelors degree

          Here, they clearly need degree from NAAC accredited A university.

          CMJ does not have NAAC accredited and even if it get it done, it will not get anything beyond C grade

          About corporate: It is not preferred. Corporate may or may not accept the individual but definitely they will not value the CMJ

        1. Hi,
          This is recognized by UGC as a private university. The UGC does not talk about its efficiency to deliver the courses. Only basis of recommendation was "There was no institute in western sikkim"

          further, This university started with just 6 courses to make fool everybody and immediately after that started selling the degrees in the name of distance learning. It is showing backdated admission and in one sitting awarding degrees. (I really do not know how many of such students who have bought degree like that are really capable to pass degrees under stringent measure)

          It is a private university, with no quality and involve in selling degree. Students are also getting lot of difficulty after completing degree from this institute

          For government job, degree from this institute stands valid and even for higher education as of now.

          In corporate, it has no value

          Thanks for your appreciation.
          Yes, there are foreign universities, well reputed who offers executive MBA programme however it will be very costly (as good as full time MBA from IIMs) and for such programme there is no placement support.

          For part time MBA, I do not know your city however following are good options

          For Mumbai
          part time MBA programme (3 years), classes 6 PM to 8 PM daily
          Admission: based on group discussion.
          Fee: Approx 55000 per year
          Degree: From University of Mumbai
          Distance learning: No
          Courses available: MMM (Master of Marketing Management), MFM (Master of Financial Management), MFSM (Master of Financial Service Management- Only at Alkesh Dinesh Modi Institute, Department of management studies, University of Mumbai), MHRM (Master of human resources management), MIM (Master of Informatin Management- for IT)
          Equivalent to MBA and masters degree: Yes
          Eligible for higher studies, NET, lecturership: Yes

          Almost all institute in Mumbai offer this but you should opt only following institutes
          1. Jamnalal Bajaj Institute of Management Studies (JBIMS)
          2. Welingkar (do not do PGDM or PGDBA, do only courses mentioned above)
          3. K J Somiaya
          4. N L Dalmia
          5. ADMI

          Other options are:
          1. Executive MBA froom NMIMS
          2. Not MBA but executive programme in management from IIT Bombay
          http://www.som.iitb.ac.in/epm/btn%201%20copy.html

          Delhi
          1. Faculty of Management studies, FMS, University of Delhi (Executive MBA)


          Hyderabad
          JNTU
          MBA (Part-Time) 6 Semesters
          A part time MBA program is catered for the working executives from public and private sector. This three year program imparts and equips them with the contemporary issues in management

          Everybody knows now that whoever take degree from CMJ is actually they do not study there, they do not do authentic research they just buy the degree.
          This university is a private one, now rcongized by UGC but it may meet the similar fate of private universities in Chhatisgarh under the Act of 2004 where supreme court declared all the universities are invalid so their courses.
          Again, students are getting lot of rejection from India and abroad when they apply for job and visa from CMJ and other such private universities.


          One request to all:
          Please be ethical
          Please do not buy degree, earn it. There must be a job of your capability and interest. Please do not pollute the education system. Better do little hard work and earn degree from good universities.

        1. Hi
          First of all to work as a lecturer, one need to have 2 years masters degree programme and then qualified in NET/ SLET and Ph.D as preferred.
          So one year programme even for a UGC approved university remains invalid
          S. P Jain is a highly reputed B school in India.
          Its fee is also very high. It is approx 25 Lakhs.
          For lecturer job even if you do distance MBA from approved well known university in distance mode (pondicherry, Madras, Anna etc.) it costs around 50,000 then why to spend 25 lakhs?

          If your son is an engineer or holds 4 years degree, he can do FPM (Fellowship programme in Management) which is equivalent to MBA, free of cost and even IIM pay stipend per month. This is the better option

        You have done an excellent job by exposing the recognised universities which in fact are degree mills.

        Moreover, it is noteworthy that UGC's list is outdated. The universities mentioned in the list of UGC are no more present, in fact they had stopped their work decades ago. But the UGC keeps on publishing the same list again and again. They never try to update the list by including new fake universities.

Dear Sir,

Can you please inform me if Kanpur Vidyapeeth Utter Pradesh, BTech distance education is UGC and AICTE approved.

The BTech degree is approved and accepted by Saudi Council of Engineers for Saudi Embassy Attestation for a job in Saudi Arabia.

Your valuable reply will be highly appreciated.

Thanks and Regards.

ATQP.
