| Education Jagat - 07 Nov 2022

Online Ph.D. programs offered by EdTech companies in collaboration with foreign educational institutions are not recognized, the University Grants Commission (UGC) and the All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE) announced on Friday.
 This is the second such warning this year to students by the higher education and technical education regulators.
 Earlier this year, the UGC and the AICTE had warned their recognized varsities and institutions against offering courses in distance learning and online mode in association with Ed-tech companies, saying no “franchise” agreement is permissible according to norms.
 “To maintain the standards for awarding Ph.D. degrees, the UGC has notified the UGC (Minimum Standards and Procedure for Award of MPhil, Ph.D. degrees) Regulation 2016. All higher educational institutions must follow UGC Regulations and its amendments for awarding Ph.D. degrees,” according to a joint order issued by the UGC and the AICTE.
