UGC finally asks Mahatma Gandhi University, Shillong to shut down its centres in India and abroad

Hello Friends,

I am finally happy that even if it is late UGC took corrective action. Remember, I used to tell all readers of my blog to opt out from Mahatma Gandhi University, Shillong. 

I wrote about it in June 2013 

You may also refer my blog post related to this one


Unfortunately, The UGC took lot of time to take the decision and action. Due to this many students have lost their valuable years and money. The only gainers are DEC officials who got good bribe, DEB officials who got bribe, Meghalaya Government Officials and MGU university founders. 

You may also look at following:

The most shocking thing is, this university is yet not inspected by UGC and the university has also not submitted any documents UGC has asked. 

I get every day lot of query about the degree, validity from students in India and abroad. I have carefully mentioned the validity of the same too but still there is repeat of the same question.

MGU Shillong's any degree obtained outside its campus is invalid. 

Today, The Hindu published a news that UGC has asked Mahatma Gandhi University Shillong (MGU) Shillong to shut its all shops inside and outside India. 

Please note that now, all these degrees are just paper. These are invalid and cannot be used for higher education and job purposes

MG varsity asked to shut down 13 off-campus centres

hey were in violation of the UGC guidelines on territorial jurisdiction

The University Grants Commission (UGC) has asked the Mahatma Gandhi University to shut down its seven international and six national off-campus centres immediately.
According to a letter written by Dev Kant Rao, deputy director of the UGC Distance Education Bureau (DEB) to the director of the varsity’s School of Distance Education, a copy of which is available with The Hindu, the opening of the centres was in violation of the UGC guidelines on territorial jurisdiction.
“The DEB, UGC vide its letter dated November 28, 2013, had requested the university to close down all study centres for offering programmes through distance mode opened in violation of the UGC policies. But it seems that the university has continued admitting students through these centres, thus jeopardizing the careers of the students,” says the letter.
According to the list opublished on the MGU’s website, the seven international off-campus centres are at Sharjah, Doha, Bahrain, Dubai, Kuwait, Abu Dhabi and Oman.
The national centres offering off-campus programmes are in Gujarat, Jharkhand, Maharashtra, West Bengal, Karnataka and the Union Territory of New Delhi.

I hope a news report from a reputed news paper like The Hindu bring more trust about my campaign against degree selling universities and their agents world over.
Please do not opt any degree, any courses, from any centre, whatever the seller agent/ institutes say.

All the best

  1. e University Grants Commission (UGC) has set July 23 as deadline for the Mahatma Gandhi University to submit a compliance report after closing down its seven international and six national off-campus centres.The apex body’s latest missive came after it turned down a request by the university Vice Chancellor in-charge Sheena Shukkur to review the decision to shut down the 13 centres functioning outside the State and abroad. The university authorities will have to close down its seven international off-campus centres at Sharjah, Doha, Bahrain, Dubai, Kuwait, Abu Dhabi and Oman and the national centres in Gujarat, Jharkhand, Maharashtra, West Bengal, Karnataka and the Union Territory of New Delhi before July 23 as per the UGC directive.The Hindu had reported on June 24 that the Distance Education Bureau (DEB) of the commission found that the centres were opened in violation of the UGC guidelines on territorial jurisdiction. In a letter dated July 8 sent to the Vice Chancellor, D.K. Rao, Deputy Director of DEB, has requested the university not to admit any students in the programmes offered through distance mode for the year 2014-15.The DEB letter pointed out that the UGC has been time and again requesting the State universities to limit offering their programmes within the territorial jurisdiction of their Act and statutes but not beyond the boundary of the respective State of their enactment.“The State university is not authorised/competent to open study centres/off campus centres beyond the territorial jurisdiction of the State as per the judgement of the Hon’ble Supreme Court in the case of Prof. Yashpal vs. State of Chhattisgarh,” it said.The regulatory body recalled that it had written to all the universities or State governments on April 16, 2009, to stop all State or State private universities from operating beyond the territorial jurisdiction in any manner either in the form of off-campus or study centre or affiliated college and the centres opened through franchises. University officials said the UGC’s latest directive would be discussed at the syndicate meeting to be held on July 19. This news is for mgu kottayam not mgu meghalaya
