New Delhi: The Delhi University is shying away from investigation into the admissions in colleges done on the basis of fake documents. When the Union Human Resource Development Ministry asked the university to produce the details of admission process in the Parliament, the authorities mislead the government by sending the admission details of Ramjas College only.

Admissions in Bhagat Singh College, Dyal Singh College, Moti Lal Nehru College and Sri Ram College of Commerce have been done on the basis of duplicate marksheets. An FIR has been filed in this regard. However, after the incident came to the fore, many colleges cancelled such admissions to avoid scrutiny.

HRD Ministry official SB Prasad had written to the Registrar of DU on November 16, 2011 to reply on the question raised in the Lok Sabha regarding the college admissions. He was asked to clarify on the numbers of such admissions, the status of investigation in this regard and why the dillydallying in the enquiry.

Deputy Registrar (Colleges) Deepak Vats replied with just the details of admissions in Ramjas College.

When asked about other colleges, Deepak Vats said, “We were required to give a quick reply and Ramjas College had lodged an FIR against the accused. In addition, details of admissions in 75 colleges of North Campus conducted on basis of fake SC / ST / OBC certificates have also been sent to the HRD Ministry.”

The Delhi Police Crime Brach is looking into the case.

If the DU administration issues notices to all colleges to provide details of admissions conducted in the last three years, many more cases may come to light. It is to be noted, 47 fake marksheets have been discovered in Ramjas College alone.
