SSB to scrutinize degrees of teacher posts aspirants
8/24/2011 10:30:53 PM


EARLY TIMES REPORT
SRINAGAR, Aug 24 (KNS):

The Services Selection Board has decided to scrutinize the degrees of candidates thoroughly before finalizing the list of teacher posts, sources told KNS.
The decision has been taken in the backdrop of reports that hundreds of candidates have managed to appear in the interviews for the teacher posts in various districts of Jammu and Kashmir on fake degree obtained from outside state bogus universities.
The SSB Chairman DD Bhagat told KNS that he has taken up the matter with the government. “We tried our level best to scrutinize the candidates and didn’t allow those candidates who had fake degrees to appear in the interviews. However, the got an order from the court whereby we were asked to hold their interviews. But now we will approach the court with facts and figures,” he said.
The SSB Chairman said that apart from degrees from Jammu and Kashmir universities, those having degrees from MANUU, DOEACC and IGNOU are valid. “Rest of the universities which aren’t recognized by the Jammu and Kashmir Government won’t be entertained for any government jobs,” he added.
Baghat asked candidates having genuine degrees to come forward and help the SSB. “I’m coming to Srinagar on August 29. Genuine degree holders should meet me in my office that day as we want to make them a party in the court. We will make it sure that justice is done with them,” he said.
The SSB chairman acknowledged that fake degree holders had secured higher percentage of marks. “How is it possible that a candidate who had secured less than 40 percent in matric will score more than 90 percent in PG or B. Ed. As the universities which award such degrees are fake, they sell the degrees,” he added.
BACKGROUND
The Services Selection Board had invited applications for a few thousand teacher posts in November 2010. Subsequently, thousands of candidates applied for the same and short listing of the candidates was done on the basis of qualifications and marks percentage from February 2011. The interviews were held from March onwards.
However, reports said hundreds of candidates who have acquired B. Ed, M Ed and other post graduate degrees from outside state fake universities were topping the list owing to their higher percentage of marks.
“Hundreds of candidates have paid money and purchased the degrees from fake universities. They are being awarded marks somewhere from 80 to 95 percent depending upon how much a candidates pays for the degree,” a delegation of candidates told KNS.
“As candidates who have passed their degrees from Kashmir University and other universities from the state secure less marks due to high standard of marking in these varsities, they lag far behind in merit list prepared by the Services Selection Board authorities,” they added.
The SSB awards points to candidates on the basis of qualification and percentage secured.
Sources privy to the interview panel of SSB, which finalized the list of candidates, said the higher percentage of marks was a cause of ‘frustration’ for them.
One of the member, wishing not to be named said, “It was really surprising to see the marks certificates having 90 and above percent marks. We fail to understand how a varsity can award such staggering marks to PG students. It is a matter of concern and needs to be looked into seriously.”
Though the menace of fake certificates, which was on spree during the mid-nineties in Kashmir, had been done away with after rigorous efforts from the authorities and dozens of universities and professional colleges were closed by the central government across India, some fake universities in different states of the country are still “selling degrees.”
Since the candidates are short listed on merit bases, the KU pass-outs are no match to the ones having degrees from outside fake universities. The pass-outs from Kashmir University are stressing for a multi-pronged strategy to look into the matter to bring in reforms in the University.
“The authorities should minutely scrutinize the certificates of out-side universities and verify their authenticity,” the genuine candidates appealed.
