No jobs, higher education in India for students seeking admission in Pakistan: UGC, AICTE

NEW DELHI: The University Grants Commission (UGC) and the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) jointly advised students not to travel to Pakistan for pursuing higher education. “Any Indian national or overseas citizen who intends to take admission in 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 qualifications acquired in Pakistan,” said an official joint notice from UGC and AICTE.

Making an exception, the Commission and Council allowed migrants and their children who have acquired higher education from Pakistan to be eligible for doing jobs in India after getting security clearance from the Ministry of Home Affairs.

In a similar development, earlier in March, UGC advised students interested in pursuing courses in universities in China to be “aware” of the Covid-related travel restrictions imposed by that country, saying many Indians have not been able to return to continue their studies there due to the curbs. The notice was released after a few Chinese universities issued notices for admission to various degree programmes for the current and the upcoming academic years.


Meanwhile, AICTE requested all vice-chancellors of technical universities and all directors, principals of AICTE-approved Institutions to consider the cases of Indian students who returned from war-torn Ukraine, and to allocate them to the vacant seats available in their institutions at appropriate levels to facilitate the continuation of education.
