Fake list of universities by HEC

Federal Higher Education Commission (HEC) has released the list of hundred higher education’s institutes that are illegal. Among these 79 universities are the ghost and exist only on papers.

Commission has decided to inquire about the 15 schools in the second phase, while inquiry committees have been set up to investigate the four universities Chairperson HEC Punjab has also advised students to refrain from taking admission in colleges affiliated with the private school. Higher education experts fear that these institutes might have started issuing their degrees.

Earlier, the HEC had declared the 103 universities and educational institutes to be illegal; later the list was cut short to 100 institutes.

The condition of higher education in Pakistani institutes is already not much satisfactory. The presence of fake universities and colleges reveals how people have exploited the sacred field of education merely for a business and to make money out of it. It also explains the strong societal pressure of the students who just don’t care to educate themselves and learn the advanced knowledge but only run behind a degree certificate just to land a job.
