MKCG Medical College and Hospital to verify genuineness of PwD certificates of students
The higher education department has urged MKCG Medical College and Hospital to verify the genuineness of the PwD certificates of three students.
To identify those students who have taken admission to various colleges and universities using fake PwD certificates, the higher education department has urged the Maharaja Krushna Chandra Gajapati (MKCG) Medical College and Hospital to verify the genuineness of the PwD certificates of three students.
The higher education department has sent the names of three students to the college. These students are reportedly studying undergraduate courses in two leading colleges of Berhampur for the academic session 2021-23. Two of them have submitted the PwD certificates for blindness and low vision and the third one has submitted a PwD locomotor certificate, as reported by TOI.
Many students' admission cancelled for submitting fake PwD certificates
The department had cancelled admission of eight students of the BJB Autonomous College on April 8 who had taken admission by submitting fake disability certificates for the sessions of 2019-20, 2020-21, and 2021-22.
The action was taken on the complaint lodged by the BJB Autonomous College against the eight students for taking admission by submitting the fake disability certificates.
"If a normal student says he cannot see things clearly and submits a fake certificate for the visually impaired, what can we do? There is no scope to detect any forgery during the busy process of admission. That's why we send these certificates for verification," said a teacher at the premier institute.
