HYDERABAD: After the boom of fake manpower consultants waiting to fleece students in the city,  it is the turn of educational consultancies to cheat them.The consultancies directly approach students and parents and collect their original certificates that they later use to block seats in technical colleges, without the knowledge of the students.

The consultants promise unsuspecting students seats in good technical universities and purchase SSC, Intermediate and Degree certificates for Rs 5,000  to Rs 10,000 from students. They are also promised that once they join the college, along with good facilities, they will also get the monetary benefit of Rs 10,000.“The certificates are then sold to low-grade technical institutes for anything between Rs 15,000 to Rs 30,000. These people are making money at the cost of the students’ career,” said Dr KVK Rao, chairman, general secretary of All India of Self Financing Technical Institutions (AISFTI).

AISFTI has given a representation to deputy chief minister Kadiam Srihari  demanding the government to create awareness among students and parents. Meanwhile, the director of an educational consultancy in Karimnagar along with five others were apprehended for preparing fake educational certificates pertaining to 32 autonomous universities across the country. As many as 160 fake certificates were seized.
