MADURAI: In a shocking revelation, it has come to light that nearly 185 people belonging from Madurai district managed to secure Central government jobs by producing fake community certificates.

The government servants, who joined service using bogus certificates, had allegedly managed to pull off the forgery by changing the detail of community and nativity in their school transfer certificates with attestation from their school principals.

Many of these government servants and the principals who had attested their certificates have retired from service during this period and have been investigated by education department. Now, the police have been asked to pursue the investigation.

The scam came to light after the State Adi Dravidar and Tribal Welfare Department, issued directions to certificate verification offices, vigilance and police departments to investigate the issue and submit a report.

The same instructions have been given to the district education department through video-conferencing, said sources. District officials, when contacted, refused to comment on the issue.
