Won’t recognise Pakistani degrees, say UGC, AICTE



The University Grants Commission (UGC) and the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) have asked Indian students not to pursue higher education in Pakistani institutions.

“All concerned are advised not to travel to Pakistan for pursuing higher education. Any Indian national or Overseas Citizen of India who intends to take admission to any degree college or educational institution of Pakistan shall not be eligible for seeking employment or higher studies in India on the basis of such educational qualification (in any subject) acquired in Pakistan,” the advisory read.

The degrees of Pakistani nationals who migrated to India will be exempted from this after obtaining clearance from the Ministry of Home Affairs.

“However, migrants and their children who have acquired higher education degrees in Pakistan and have been awarded citizenship by India would be eligible for seeking employment in India after obtaining security clearance from the Ministry of Home Affairs,” it added.
