UGC Grants Commission ( Public Notice )

In case you have missed /don't read Employment News then here is an important press release which you ought to be aware of .

In the interest of the  public and students I ask you to either pass on this blog post or inform them about this notice. I couldn't find the  link for the article online so I am quoting it here as give out by U.G.G 

" It is hereby informed to the public at large and students that Indian Institute of Planning and Management (IIPM), New Delhi is not a university withing the meaning of Section 2 (f) of UGC Act 1956,. Further as per Section 22 of the U.G.C Act 1956, the IIPM, New Delhi does not have the right of conferring of granting degrees as specified by the U.G.C Section 22(3) of U.G.C Act."

The article then goes on to inform the students that the universities established by a Central Act or a State Act or an Institution deemed to be a university under Section 3 of the university Grants Commission  Act can confer or grant only those degrees which are specified by the U.G.C  Act,1956.

The list of degree can be found in this website U.G.C 

If you know anyone - friend, son, relative - just about anybody , ask them to think twice before applying for IIPM 

I will share my thoughts on this issue in my next blog. Meanwhile, you can read :
