Ministry of Education and UGC officials said that after getting approval from a university, permission is required to start education activities. The mentioned companies have not yet received that permission.

These are - Sylhet International University, Britannia University, Central University of Science and Technology and Southern University of Bangladesh. The last of these was forbidden to enter. About two years ago, the Ministry of Education decided to impose the ban without any opinion from the UGC.

The government shut down six universities in 28 on various charges. Following the verdict in the High Court against the order in this regard, the United States Bangladesh University and the University of Comilla are under discussion.

Four universities have been blacklisted for having unauthorized campuses. Among them, the University of South Asia runs an unauthorized campus on Road 5 at Banani. Apart from this, NPI University, which is authorized to set up in Manikganj, is running the campus at Farmgate in Dhaka without permission. An illegal campus is also run by the University of Global Village in Barisal.

UGC has sent a report to the Ministry of Education in the last few months recommending the closure of two universities. They are Time University in Faridpur and First Capital University in Chuadanga. They are in violation of various sections of the law governing the University, the UGC report said.

The UGC said the ZH Sikder University in Shariatpur and the University of Savar are running unauthorized programs. The latter is going to several cases in the High Court on various issues.
