Congress demands probe into ‘fake certificates’

Congress demand for action against officials who had issued such certificates

Puducherry: The Opposition Congress Sunday demanded a detailed probe into the fake certificates allegedly issued by the revenue department to students applying for admission to professional courses under government quota. A.V. Subramanian of Puducherry Pradesh Congress Committee said in a release here Sunday that a girl student from Dindigul in neighbouring Tamil Nadu had recently submitted her application under government quota with a fake certificate declaring her to be a native of the Union territory.

Subramanian said though the government had suspended three officials, including a deputy tahsildar in this regard, there were also allegations that a number of students from outside Puducherry had submitted similar certificates to join professional courses this academic year. He demanded that all applications and certificates submitted by students to do professional courses be scanned, those who had submitted bogus certificates be proceeded against. Action should also be taken against officials who had issued such certificates, he said.
