A teacher at a public school in Jajpur district in Odisha has been suspended for allegedly submitting false certificates to get the job more than two decades ago, an official said.
Rasulpur Block Education Officer (BEO) filed FIR with Kuakhia Police Station against Binaya Bhusan Saran for submitting false and falsified grade sheets of High School Certificate (HSC) and Certificate of Teaching (CT) exams to get the job in 1994.
Saran, an assistant teacher at Durgapur Primary School under Barabati Panchayat of Rasulpur Block, has served with false certificates for 27 years.
He “was placed in suspension following the awaiting of a departmental procedure against him for presenting false certificates to obtain the post”, according to an official order of the office of the BEO.
The District Education Efficer (DEO) had asked the Council for Secondary Education (BSE) for the authenticity of the HSC and CT certificates and scorecards, and found them falsified during an audit.
Based on the BSE report, Jajpur DEO Ranjan Giri asked the Rasulpur BEO to take action against the suspect.
Giri said he detected four teachers in a week for providing false certificates to get the job.
“We will regularly carry out a certificate inspection campaign in the district to detect teachers producing fake certificates to get jobs,” he said.
This is the second such incident in the district in a fortnight.
Three public school teachers in Barachana Block were suspended for presenting false teacher eligibility test certificates on September 18.
