Every year, almost without fail, at least one of the numerous colleges under the University of Delhi find fake certificates being submitted during the admission season.
This time also, three students tried to take admission in Delhi University’s Sri Aurobindo College by submitting fake mark sheets and documents from a fake board during the admission process.
The fake marksheets and documents were issued by ‘Board of Higher Secondary Education(Delhi).’ All three of them had filled up the forms and were in the process of getting their documents verified. As per Indian Express report, Angad Tiwari, a member of the college’s admission grievance committee said,”It was during the final verification process that the machine showed that the documents were not genuine. First, there is no such board. Then, as we were trying to verify their claim, two of the aspirants ran away. One of them was taken to the principal, but he also ran away, leaving the documents.” The national capital does not have a board of its own. However, the ‘Board of Higher Secondary Education (Delhi)’, on its website, claims to be an autonomous organization under the Government of India.
The Dean Students’ Welfare office has also often warned students against touts during the admission days.
