180+ Illegal But Functional Higher Education Institutions in Pakistan : HEC

(Last Updated On: 09/05/2015)

HEC acronym for Higher Education Commission of Pakistan recently claimed that about more than 180 institutions which are not yet officially registered are working in Pakistan.Though some of the degree awarding institutions have their affiliation with public or private sector universities but yet they have not provided their NOC to HEC which is required for official recognization by HEC.

Provincial governor of HEC claimed that leading bodies of such unrecognised organizations taking education as a business and instead of repeating notifications for NOC by HEC not responding on it.Infact number of such fake organizations are now increasing in Pakistan.

Some authorized people also verified that there are many degrees awarding universities in Pakistan introducing themselves as International organization or affiliation with International organization but this is totally fake.Some universities have their pseudo names on i.e American, London and other international organizations.

It is therefore suggested that in order to discourage this trend it is necessary to dismiss the funds of those public or private sector organization to whom these unrecognised institutions are connected with.

On March 23 Dr. Zulifiqar Ali Bhatti with the reference of Committe on Fedral Education and Professional Training presided a meeting in parliament truly taken into account this agenda.

Acting Executive Director of HEC Dr.Mansoor Kundi stated that HEC is eagerly playing its role in this dimension by sending notices, tracing and reducing such unrecognized bodies.He claimed that HEC in a particular time span reduced the numbers of such fake universities by putting their name and websites on the official websites of HEC and also by providing Public Service messages through print and electronic media in this regard.

Now it’s a need of hour that government take strict action on those who are playing with the future of youngsters just for sake of their personal incentives and lust.Meanwhile, public should also play its significant role by informing higher authorities about such heavenly faced devilish bodies.

  • Ye baat note krne wali ha k en ma sa 80% institutes punjab ma hain or sb sa zyada lahore ma. Jb k karachi ma taqreeban na hone k braber hain. Ma na andaza lagaya ha k karachi ka highier education sb sa behter or relible ha. Ye alag baat k kuch log ye list apni aankhon sa dekhne k baad b meri baat nahi manengay.

  • It is notified that Pakistan is totally destroyed in order to control its skeleton,all people and the Government is too sleeping that in future,we will not be able to understand Is education a buisness?

    We are moving towards declination & downfall,in order to over-confidence and fake material every person in this country should die into a river.we can not control this situation till each person play a positive role to secure the youngsters future.

  • I am in total support of HEC in this matter. Running a non-recognized institute will harm students in the long run. Most of them may not be able to get a certified degree after years of hard work making it difficult for them to survive in the cooperate world. Running a fake university may be profitable for a brief period of time but there is a greater chance the law might discontinue all their on goings. All such universities should be shut down effective immediately because they are destroying the future of our potential pupils.
