SSB to scan documents of aspirants for teachers post
Complaints about ‘fake’ M Ed, B Ed degrees
Srinagar, Apr 7: Following complaints that some aspirants short listed by the Services Selection Board for teacher posts allegedly possessed fake degrees, the recruiting agency has decided to scan the documents of such candidates during the final selection.
Sources said the SSB had written to the higher education department asking it to furnish the list of the fake universities and of those recognized by the University Grants Commission.
“The recruiting agency is scanning the certificates of all the candidates with Bachelor of Education or Master of Education from the alleged fake universities in order to ascertain their authenticity,” sources said.
They said the Board in this regard had written to Higher Education department for the identification of such Universities.
“No candidate having done his B.Ed or M.Ed through the distance mode from the universities other than Kashmir or Jammu University will be considered for the final selection,” sources said.
They said SSB would even verify the credentials of the candidates possessing regular degree from outside from their respective universities.
Though, the move has been appreciated by the candidates, but at the same time they have apprehensions that the candidates with degree from Distance mode from outside universities can easily obtain even regular ones.
Confirming that the certificates of candidates with degrees from the alleged fake universities are being scanned properly SSB Chairman, B D Baghat, told Greater Kashmir,” Though we have interviewed such candidates, but their certificates will be properly scanned before coming up with the final selection.”
He said they would come up with the final selection list only after properly ascertaining the authenticity of the degrees of such candidates.
“Any short listed candidate found having done B.Ed or M.Ed from the fake university during scanning will not be considered for the final selection,” he said.
He said the candidates with degrees through the distance mode or study centre from any outside university even if it was recognized would also not be considered.
“SSB will soon issue the notice in the vernacular dailies wherein the candidates who have completed the degrees outside State would be asked to submit the bonafide certificates,” he said.
When asked about the candidates with regular degrees from some dubious though recognized universities or deemed universities outside state, Baghat said, “For that we have to change rules and may be conduct a written entrance test, but for now we can’t do it”.
