The All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) says there are nearly 300 FAKE ENGINEERING COLLEGES IN INDIA and these are in many states as you can see the image. TO BE GENUINE AND APPROVED AND NOT BE FAKE, A COLLEGE NEEDS TO GET APPROVAL FROM THE AICTE for its degree programmes, coursework.
Sadly students have got enrolled, paid large sums of money in fees and finally have been issued degrees from such fake colleges and universities. But sadly –> such degrees and marks are not valid for higher education and government jobs.
The AICTE has been running advertisements in multiple languages with names of such fake colleges in local newspapers. However, as law and order is a state subject, each state has to enforce the law by shutting down such fake and unapproved college…

In a major shock, Supreme Court passed judgment in late 2017 that ALL ENGINEERING DEGREES AWARDED THAT WERE AWARDED SINCE 2001, VIA CORRESPONDENCE COURSES ARE INVALID. The judgement was given after it was confirmed with the UGC and AICTE (both government bodies) if the concerned colleges and universities had been given prior permission. But to get what appears to be a simple confirmation have really taken so long and one that now impacts thousands and thousands of students and families. Could the Supreme Court or other Courts for that matter have heard such cases on a priority basis? It seems doubtful that lack of time – over these years – could be a reason.
