HEC Announces These 157 Educational Institutions Fake & illegal

In a recent development, the Higher Education Commission (HEC) has published a comprehensive list of 157 educational institutions operating illegally and without registration across the country. Additionally, 31 universities and colleges located in Lahore were also flagged as unrecognized. The HEC has issued a stern warning to prospective students, urging them not to enroll in degree programs offered by these institutions.

The list includes various institutions that have been identified as fake, illegal, and unlawful in Punjab, Sindh, Azad Jammu & Kashmir, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, and the Federal Capital. These institutions have been operating without proper authorization from the HEC, making their degrees and qualifications ineligible for recognition.

HEC emphasized that students should exercise extreme caution and verify the status of any educational institution before seeking admission. Genuine educational institutions are those that are chartered and have their campuses listed on the HEC’s official website. By enrolling in unrecognized institutions, students run the risk of wasting their time and money on degrees that hold no value in the job market or for further studies.
