DTE Maharashtra Warns About Admissions In Fake Universities!

Posted By:

Maharashtra is all set to enter the season of entrance exams and admissions for various technical and professional courses. With this on the cards, the Directorate of Technical Education, DTE Maharashtra has issued a warning notification to students and parents aspiring for a professional course admission across various technical colleges in the state.

DTE Maharashtra has notified students to be wary of fake and unrecognised institutions offering fake degrees.

The notification on the department's website says that it will be the sole responsibility of students and parents to verify the affiliation of the institution as well as validity of the degree.

This is not the first time that the DTE has issued such a notice. Notifying students and parents about the fake institutions has become a common practice for the last 2-3 years prior to the beginning of the admission season.

"It is better to warn the students right at time of entrance examination. This is the time they start researching courses and institutes. Many times they get floored with fancy claims of institutes but after taking admissions, it turns out to be a sham and then becomes a headache for us," said a senior DTE official.
