DU move to check fake certificates

Delhi University’s admission committee has recommended seeking help of forensic experts to detect fake certificates.

In its meeting on Friday, the committee also discussed proposals to curb irregularities in admissions through sports and extra-curricular activities (ECA) quota.

The university is likely to start online registration for 54,000 undergraduate seats from May 28. A final call on this year’s admission policy will be taken on May 23, according to R N Dubey, a member of the admission committee. If the vice chancellor approves the recommendation, all DU colleges will be required to hire forensic experts to examine certificates submitted by students at the time of admission.

Last year, four students of Delhi College and Arts and Commerce were expelled on charges of forging their academic documents.

Similar cases were reported from Ramjas College, Hindu College, Shaheed Bhagat Singh College and Sri Venkateswara College in the last several years, a university official said. Until last year, it was the prerogative of colleges to appoint forensic experts. The committee in its Friday meeting also decided to tweak the admission criteria for students applying under sports and ECA quota.
