A recruitment notification was issued recently in the name of the university

The University Grants Commission (UGC) has said there is no private university named Bangabandhu International University in Saidpur as it does not have any approval from the government.

Prof Biswajit Chandra, who is in charge of the UGC's department of private universities, said the commission was not aware of the existence of any educational institution called Bangabandhu International University.

In a media statement, the commission made it clear that it had not received any project proposal in this regard.

Recently, Prof ABM Sharifuzzaman Shah, who introduced himself as the founder and acting vice chancellor (VC) of Bangabandhu International University, issued a notification in the media about recruitment for various posts, including pro-vice chancellor and teachers at the institution.

MP Rabeya Alim was shown as the founder-president of the board of trustees of the university.

The UGC warned students, teachers and job seekers about the university after learning about the recruitment notification in the media as well as news of the laying of the foundation stone of the university.

The commission asked everyone to check the list of approved universities and programs published on UGC's website if necessary.

The UGC asked the Ministry of Education and other parties concerned to take measures to put a stop to the illegal activities of the non-existent organization. 

Meanwhile, MA Khair, public relations officer of the Education Ministry, said the ministry was investigating the matter given that there was no university by this name.

The ministry also asked everyone to refrain from responding to the recruitment notification of the university.

It may be mentioned that according to the Private Universities Act 2010, the President of the country appoints VCs, Pro-VCs and Treasurers in each private university for a term of four years. 

Therefore, if any university authority appoints anyone to these posts, it will be a violation of  the law. In addition, certificates issued under various programs of private universities without a VC will also be considered invalid.
