After being dogged by a fake marksheet scam during 2011 admission season,Delhi University’s Ramjas College is not taking any chances this year. The college will be engaging four forensic experts to aid its staff in ensuring that the marksheets submitted by candidates are genuine,Ramjas College principal said on Monday.

“We have engaged four forensic experts — all retired from government agencies — to make sure that all marksheets submitted to us are genuine. In addition to verifying marksheets using CDs containing marks provided by the university and with that available online,every marksheet submitted to the college will pass through the hands of these professionals before admission is granted,” said Dr Rajendra Prasad,principal of Ramjas College.

Last admission season,the college had reported to police 36 cases of fake admissions obtained using forged marksheets. The police investigation which followed had named college including,the principal as suspects,in the case. A Delhi court,however,had refused to summon the principal,pointing out that there was “no reasonable ground” to do so.

According to Delhi University procedures,colleges are supposed to verify all CBSE marksheets submitted during admissions by cross-checking the marks with that uploaded on the CBSE website under respective roll numbers or from CDs provided by DU.
