Makes life, thanks to qualified wife
A man who failed to pass a diploma course and used his wife’s marks card to secure the top-level post with an IT giant, has landed in the custody of Chandra Layout police.
Nandan R, 33, a resident of Papareddypalya, Nagarbhavi second stage, had been hired as deputy general manager by IBM at a salary of Rs 24 lakh a year, thanks to his wife’s marks card. Nandan had even obtained a PG degree in management using marks cards faked from his wife’s educational documents as proof his qualification. The fraud was discovered following a complaint by his wife, Latha to police.
After passing out from at St Joseph’s Boys school, Nandan joined MEI Polytechnic College for a diploma course in electronics and c, but failed to clear the course.
The fraudulent marks cards were created from photo copies of Latha’s original marks cards of pre-university and BCom courses. Nandan photocopied the marks cards by putting his name over that of his wife, and had the photocopies attested by a notary, police said.
The attested testimonials were submited to Hewlett-Packard in 2005. Based on the scores indicated, Nandan was made a manager. In 2007, he applied for a PG degree in Management with the Indian Institute of Management at Kozhikode in Kerala, and passed the course. He then joined Amicorp as director of marketing in 2008, and moved to IBM in August 2011.
Nandan married Latha seven years ago and the couple have a daughter. Latha, who was previously employed at a private company, had resigned her job. According to police, the couple had been undergoing marital strife. When Latha decided to return to her parent’s home, she searched for marks cards which were in Nandan’s custody.
But when Nandan refused to part with them, Latha grew suspicious. A search revealed the doctored documents, after which she lodged a complaint.
