Approved foreign education boards in India

I get query on foreign boards validity in India and it has suddenly increased so I thought to write about it.
In my previous post, I had informed about valid, recognized and unrecognized board s for school education in India. Surprisingly more than  50 such fake education boards exist in India.
here is the article link

Fake Education board and Real Education board (for Secondary Education) 
There had been constant queries pouring  on few foreign boards too, so I thought to write about it. I am sure this will help general reader of my blog as well as to my HR friends on identifying such fake boards.
Well, in terms of Indian boards, it is COBSE who recognize them. COBSE also recognize board from SAARC countries. Whereas for 10+2, HSC/ senior secondary qualification from countries other than India, it is AIU (Association of Indian Universities) who grants approval and recognition.

Please note: AIU does not accept High School Diploma (GED)/other school qualifications
pursued through ONLINE/ DISTANCE Mode
So, it is very clear, if any foreign country, any agent in India, anybody offer distance learning SSC, HSC, Matriculation, senior secondary, 10+2 from a foreign country in online mode, distance mode such qualifications are invalid.
I also got following query:
is NWAC [northwest accreditation commission, USA board is valid in India? AUI recognize it for UG admission?


Regards,

Dolly

and
Hello sir,

Sir please tell me that NWAC, North west accreditation commission theay  are connected 10th and high school sr diploma courses   is valid or fake board. this board have value or not.


Regards,

Dr.NARENDRAKUMAR S

So to clarify: Above mentioned board does not feature in the list of approved board by AIU.
Further, NWAC has clarified that except SERI, they do not have any agent, any sub centre of their board and also they do not offer any course in distance, online, external or private mode. They have only 25 schools as a member.
Further, to be recognize NWAC, it must satisfy following criteria
High School Diploma awarded by the American Schools in USA and other parts 
of the world should be accredited either by the State Departments of Education OR 
by Six Regional Accrediting Agencies in USA: 
1. Middle States Association of Schools and Colleges. 
2. New England Association of Schools and Colleges. 
3. North Central Association of Schools and Colleges. 
4. Northwest Association of Schools and Colleges. 
5. Southern Association of Schools and Colleges. 
6. Western Association of Schools and Colleges. 
So beware, the qualification is unrecognized unless it is full time. Only following schools are authorised to offer NWAC qualifications in India
