NASSCOM complains about fake certificates to KCR
Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao expressed serious concern over Hyderabad earning the dubious distinction of issuing maximum number of fake certificates. He was informed of Hyderabad’s status by none other than the Nasscom.
He said Nasscom officials had informed him that out of 100 applicants, who apply for IT jobs here, nearly 80 possess fake certificates and this needs to be checked. Mr Rao made it clear that he was not against students, but only against fake colleges that are claiming fee reimbursement from the state government. To check this trend, his government has come out with the Financial Assistance to Students of Telangana (FAST) scheme that will replace the fee reimbursement scheme.
“I hung my head in shame when the Nasscom officials met me and said that the majority of the certificates submitted by students here are fake. I immediately held a meeting with the DGP, city police commissioner and education officials and asked them to check this menace, which is bringing disrepute to our city and state,” Mr Rao said in the Legislative Assembly on Friday.
He added, “Nasscom officials also told me that they have stopped campus recruitments in most of the engineering colleges here. When I asked them why, they told me that there is no quality education and even poultry farms were turned into engineering colleges.”
