22 students use forge documents to secure DU admissions; Pay upto Rs. 7 lakh for a seat
Apratim Chatterjee, 31 Jul 2015, #DU

Police has unearthed an admission racket in Delhi University where at least 22 students used forged documents to secure seats in top DU colleges and paid as much as Rs 7 lakh to middlemen facilitating their admissions. According to the police, the fake admissions have taken place in several popular colleges of the University of Delhi which include prestigious names like Hindu College, Kirori Mal College, Sri Aurbindo College (Evening), Dyal Singh College, Dyal Singh College (Evening) and Shaheed Bhagat Singh College.


The Delhi Police has arrested 4 people including a DU student for their alleged involvement in the fake admissions in DU. Joint Commissioner (Crime) of Police, Ravindra Yadav told Careers360 that over a dozen more cases are in the process of being verified and the number of fake admission is expected to rise.


The cases of fake admissions have come to light after all DU colleges concluded admission upto 7th cutoff. Delhi University had released the 8th cutoff on July 30.

The police informed that these racketeers charged as much as Rs 3 to 7 lakhs for a seat in the premier colleges of the University for the course of choice.


Last year, a similar racket was busted in Shaheed Bhagat Singh College. In 2011 also, another major scandal involving fake admissions in several prestigious DU colleges had come to light.


How did racketeers do it?

The Delhi Police informed that members of the identified gang collected money from students assuring them confirmed admissions and then forged their documents including mark-sheets, caste certificates to admit them into different colleges.


What happens next?

DU College officials talking to Careers360 said that admissions to those students who had forge documents will be cancelled. Dr. Anil Kumar Singh, Principal of Sri Aurbindo College says, “We are still in the process of identifying the non-meritorious candidates and will cancel their admitted seats.”

The University has 16 faculties and 86 departments spread over North and South campuses in the National Capital. The Central University has 83 affiliated colleges with around 150000 students in regular programmes and about 250000 students enrolled in its other programmes.
