Anup Kumar, a student of C.S.J.M.U received a mark sheet for his B.A. degree course. But, he was not sure whether the report was valid or not. Not only that, he was also not confirmed whether the roll number on the mark sheet was a true or a false one, fabricated only for convincing a naive student and whether the course was a regular or a private one. He also wanted to know the date and time of admission and leaving the college.
Why Should a Student Know About the Genuineness of Passing Documents?
Knowing the authenticity of the college would help him to know if the certificate and the marksheet were of any importance or not.
Without authentic documents showing is eligibility, getting a job would become almost impossible for him.
It is all the more important for a student enrolled in a distance education course, as he or she does not get to see the college campus or the lecturers physically.
As per, the Section 2(f) of the RTI Act, by the Indian government, a student has the right to obtain various details in regard to the realness of the degree or the details of the affiliation that is proffered to the university.
Moreover, the scandal of fake marksheets is something that bothers even the most experienced and seasoned people, and Anup was just a young man, with very little knowledge about the intentions of a corrupt person.
Anup’s Initial Steps to Marksheet Verification
To clarify his doubts and to ensure marksheet verification, at first, he sent a complaint to the State Public Information Officer with his queries, which are as follows.
(1) The roll number was valid or not (2) The date for admission to college and the date for leaving (3) The course was private or regular
When his complaint was returned to him by the SIC because it was an issue under the jurisdiction of the Central Information Commission, he approached the Commission and beseeched them to take the aptest measure in regard to the matter.
Anup was still not satisfied with the speed at which the work was moving and came in contact with us.
He was worried, as he had heard some of his acquaintances go through the ordeal of getting false marksheets from unaffiliated colleges, who could not display any proof of their qualification to HR professionals at companies they went for an interview. Hailing from a middle class family, he was urgently looking for a job as his father was about to retire.
