12 hospital staff forged OBC papers

At the government-run Deen Dayal Upadhyay, 12 people were allegedly found to have forged their caste certificates while seeking appointment at the hospital.

These men were appointed in 2012. The matter was exposed a month ago after an RTI was filed in the sub-district magistrate’s office from where the caste certificates were issued.

According to an administration official, they were appointed around the same time in the hospital. The men were appointed in the posts of “staff nurse” in the hospital.

“In 2012, these men were appointed in the post of staff nurse in the hospital.

An RTI report found that the men had forged their caste certificates and gained entry into the posts under the OBC category.

The RTI was filed by a person in the SDM’s office from where the caste certificates were churned out,” said Dr Bharat Singh, the hospital’s medical superintendent.

The hospital administration has not taken any step against the accused in the alleged forgery case so far.

This is because the appointments were made through the State Health Department.

The hospital administration can decide on the course of action only after the department takes up the matter.

“The persons who allegedly produced fake certificates are still on duty. We have prepared detailed reports and forwarded it to the State Health Department. Since all the appointments were made at the state level, we cannot take decisions independently. We are awaiting the government’s report in the next one month,” said Dr Singh.

If found guilty, they might face suspension. Their services might be terminated as well for forging documents. The hospital administration is not sure yet if the men are part of a racket.
