“I don’t understand how it could have happened. You don’t translate names. I don’t know what to do now,” said Harvinder Kapoor, Prince’s father.

“This happens sometimes. It happens in regular colleges too. When you have to issue as many as 400,000 certificates, one or two errors are possible. And the names are written by hand, and it is first written in English and then in Hindi, so it must be just a human error. They can just apply for a correction and they will be issued a corrected certificate” said CS Dubey who is Director of Distance Education.

“It is a little difficult, having to go back and forth to get this fixed. But in the future, when I apply for jobs and all that, it will be a bigger problem, if I don’t get it fixed. So I will have to do it,” said Prince.
