Chennai: After complaints were raised against nine Neet applicants who had bagged state quota seats using fake nativity certificates in MBBS counselling on Friday, the debate on fake certificates has increased.

The health department officials warned of legal actions against presentation of fake certificates and have strengthened the measures to keep a check on such practices.

 

“We are keeping a strict check on the documents being presented for counselling, considering the eligibility criteria mentioned in the prospectus. Nativity certificates could be based on domicile or nativity, which makes him eligible in both states based on different criteria,” said health secretary, J. Radhakrishnan. 

He also said that city police was undertaking the investigation and the decision could be made only after analysing the eligibility criteria that are laid down in another state. 

Health department officials also undertook verification of other certifications including birth certificate, caste certificate, educational qualification certificate and application form that should be issued by concerned officials. 

 

Senior police officials said that besides alerting the health department on the issue, they have begun the verification of the allegations made against presentation of fake nativity certificates.
