CID probe into `irregularities` in BeD colleges
Bangalore: Karnataka Government will seek a CID probe into alleged irregularities in B.Ed colleges, including a racket in issuing fake degree certificates in some of them, Minister for Higher Education C T Ravi said Thursday.
The racket flourished even in some other states with colleges enrolling students and awarding certificates to those who did not attend classes or exams, he said.
In some instances, those who failed SSLC exam had managed to get B.Ed degree certificates and proxy persons writing exams on behalf of students, Ravi said.
A Committee under the chairmanship of Karan Kumar, Member of Bangalore University Syndicate,has suggested a CID probe into the racket and divided the 111 B.Ed colleges into seven categories.
It recommended derecognising those colleges where major lapses have been detected. The CID has been requested to complete the probe and submit its report in six months.
Ravi said there there are at least 20 colleges which operate on their letterhead without any buildin.
