Bhubaneswar: The Odisha Higher Education Department has asked Principals of colleges across the State to verify the disability certificates used by students for admissions and lodged F.I.R against the students who submitted fake disability certificates.
The Higher Education Department in a letter to the Principals of all Government, Non-Government, and Self-Financing colleges under the Higher Education Department, said, “Verify the disability certificates of the PH-OH students through CDMO of the district concerned.”
“After verification, if students are found to have taken admission with fake certificates, appropriate steps must be taken to cancel their admission immediately,” it added.
The letter further said, “FIR should be lodged against such students at the local police station.”
Notably, the direction of the department to all the Principals came after a report of fake disability certificates used for getting admission in Bhadrak (Autonomous) College surfaced.
