At Shivaji College,Principal Shashi Nijhawan said that a student from Andhra Pradesh came with a marksheet that had an extra alphabet in the name of the board.“We caught that discrepancy when we checked the name of the board online. I immediately sent a letter to the university about this attempt at forgery‚Äù he said.

Bhaskaracharya College of Applied Sciences conducted a special workshop on forensic verification before the admissions opened and 22 college representatives attended it. “The idea behind the initiative was to add an extra layer of security to the process so that no wrong admission was allowed and a deserving candidate didn’t lose out.”

He also disclosed that in many instances,a candidate applied with counterfeit document only if they had the confidence that someone in the college would later “handle” the matter. This is what happened in 2011,when the admission of 29 students in Ramjas was cancelled after it was found that they had given fake marksheets on the assurances of a staff member.
