What are India's fake universities?

Delhi,( India): What are India's fake Univesities? Now they were caught redhanded, and their list is out. The University Grants Commission(UGC) has published this list of fake Universities here in India.

UGC is a statutory organisation set up by India Government to co-ordinate and maintaining the standard of Universities in India. UGC has released a list of unrecognised institutions in nine states, which are in violation of the provisions of the UGC Act, 1956.

The list of the institutions has been posted on its official website. Uttar Pradesh has the most number of such institutes with 10 fake varsities while Maharashtra has the least with just Raja Arabic University identified on the list.
Most of these varsities have been on the fake varsity list before this, but the UGC and Government authorities could not have taken any action against them.

Section 22(1), of the UGC Act states that only universities established by an Act of Parliament or the State Legislature or an institution deemed to be a university or an institution especially empowered by an Act of the Parliament, can award degrees. These degrees need to be listed by the UGC under Section 22(3) of the UGC Act, 1956.
