New Delhi: In a public notice issued on Thursday, higher education regulator, the University Grants Commission has warned students against taking admission in “self-styled” Bible Open University of India, operating in Visakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh. The institution is offering degree programmes and courses in “gross violation” of the UGC Act 1956.
The UGC Act stipulates that only universities established through central, provincial or state laws and standalone institutions designated as deemed-to-be universities will be allowed to confer degrees upon students. Bible Open University of India does not meet any of these requirements and, therefore, is not authorised to offer degree programmes.

Also on Thursday, the UGC issued a list of 21 fake universities it has identified across nine states and union territories. The large number, eight, are in Delhi, followed by Uttar Pradesh with four.
