185 Universities in Pakistan are Operating Without HEC Approval



In spite of making statements about bringing important enhancements in higher education sector, Higher Education Commission in Pakistan has failed to take any action against illegal university of country. Presently, there are 185 universities in Pakistan that are not legal but performing their functions as legal universities and granting the degrees to the candidates.

The sources of HEC said that they had been taking their attempts to take a strong action against these unrecognized universities. However, some of these institutes are affiliated with government sector universities however all these universities are without the compulsory NOC of HEC. A senior officer of HEC said that if we seriously want to close the illegal institutes then we have to stop the funds of those government sector universities which gave them affiliation. He moreover said that, large number of those institutes is affiliated by the foreign institutes.

He also said that along with HEC, the provincial governors are also responsible for the growth of those universities. It is worth mentioning here that on 30th March 2015, a parliamentary panel also conveyed its apprehension over mushroom growth of business-oriented higher learning institutions in the entire state.

The Standing Committee of National Assembly on Federal Education as well as Professional Training met at Parliament House together with MNA Dr Zulfiqar Ali Bhatti in the chair.

All the members of committee were of the interpretation that majority of the private institutes are operating in very small buildings, which destroy the charter of the university. They insisted HEC to take a strong action against all those institutes.

A representative of HEC said that they have been writing the letters to the universities asking them to get NOC or to close those universities. However their response is not good at all.

She moreover said that it is our responsibility to highlight these sorts of institutes and that’s why on our official website we have put the names and ads of those institutes so that the parents can be well aware with these institutes. HEC sources also said that the quality of education had also been compromised because of the opening of these illegal institutes.

Another senior officer of HEC said that we are doing whatever we can do to enhance the quality of education in education sector, but whenever we take any strong action against these illegal institutes some origins begins the debate of restraining the role of education commission.

List of institutions not recognized by HEC

This list is dynamic and HEC will keep on updating it as the information updates become available.

        I Think We should try Break off the Manapoly of HEC in Pakistan. This is a Giant Who Helps the rich Colleges Who have Money for Charter, after charter these colleges collect huge amount from Poor Boys who have not good marks in examination. This Organisation is also with Private colleges mafia.
