Agra: What appears to be a major forgery case over 20,000 were reported to have cleared the B.ED exams from Agra's B.R Ambedkar University while only 12,800 were enrolled as regular students.
The matter came to after the BEd exams results were about to be out. The results had to be withheld at the last minute and subsequent inquiry has been ordered by the vice-chancellor.
VC Mohd Muzammil has instituted a committee to find out how the final results tally showed 20089 students when around 12,800 students were enrolled in all the affiliated colleges.
"The matter of 7,000 suspicious students came to light when the private agency preparing the BEd results objected that they only had the data of around 12,800 students while copies of over 20,000 students were checked. As the agency showed helplessness in declaring results, the VC issued letters to all the private colleges, ordering them to come up with the list of enrolled students. Private colleges then claimed that they had taken more students against seats lying vacant and these extra students also took the exam," Srivastava said, reports Times of India.
“As many as 191 BEd colleges affiliated to Dr BR Ambedkar University had claimed that more than 40% of their seats were lying vacant and they suffered losses due to this”, the daily said quoting sources.
