New Delhi: The University Grants Commission said that several higher educational institutions are issuing “misleading” advertisements and offering programmes in “gross violation” of norms and asked students to not fall for them. In a public notice, the UGC said it had noticed that some Universities, Deemed Universities or Institutions were offering programmes through Open and Distance Learning (ODL) mode in “gross violation” of the policy of UGC or erstwhile Distance Education Council (DEC).  These institutions, the notice said, are issuing “misleading” advertisements that their programmes are recognised by the UGC. Emphasising that the list of permitted programmes through distance mode is posted on UGC website, the higher education regulator clarified that no institution is permitted to offer Diploma, Bachelor or Masters level programme under ODL mode in Engineering and Technology.

“Also, UGC has not accorded recognition to any University/institution to offer online programmes,” the regulator said. –  Courtesy
