20-yr govt employee accused of faking marks for job


Commissioner of Revenue Land Survey System and Land Records, Maneesh Moudgil, filed a complaint against a woman land surveyor, for securing a government job using fake educational certificates. The woman in question has completed 20 years in service.

In his complaint to the Halasuru Gate police, Moudgil stated that accused D N Yashodamma, a resident of Vidyaranyapura, joined Revenue Land Survey System and Land Records as a surveyor in 1999. While joining, she produced a PUC marks card.

She was in service until November 11, 2017, when city-based advocate Ramakrishna D N filed a complaint with the department alleging that Yashodamma had submitted fake marks card for securing the job.

The department initiated an inquiry and wrote to the PUC Board to confirm if Yashodamma’s marks card was genuine. The PU Board wrote back after a verification, stating that the said marks card was indeed fake.

‘Initiate legal action’

The departmental inquiry found that Yashodamma was not eligible for the job and subsequently a police complaint was filed to initiate legal action against her.

“We have booked the accused under IPC sections 466 - forgery of record of Court or of public register, 419 - cheating by personation, 473 - making or possessing counterfeit seal, 471 - using as genuine a forged, 468 - forgery for purpose of cheating and 420 - cheating,” police said.
