Marklist Controversy: College Principal States Internal Investigation Underway, Attributes "Technical Issues" to Website

Kochi: Reacting to the controversy surrounding the mark list of SFI leader P.M. Arsho, the principal of Maharaja's College in Ernakulam, VS Joy, said that an internal probe is ongoing and he would respond on the matter after receiving the final report.

A controversy erupted in Kerala on Tuesday after the Kerala Students Union (KSU), the student's wing of the opposition Congress, alleged that the mark list of SFI leader P M Arsho, a student of Maharaja's College, displayed that he had "passed" the exam despite being absent during the examination days. Later, Arsho reacted that he did not attend the exam.

Principal VS Joy clarified that the publication of the results on the website was simply a "technical issue" commonly encountered with websites managed by the National Informatics Centre (NIC). He further explained that the college had previously reported this issue to NIC approximately 30 to 35 times in the past year alone. The principal also mentioned that the website had various other issues and similar problems had occurred for several other students as well. A report has been submitted to the Higher Education, the principal said.

Meanwhile, VS Joy stated that there is no need for an internal probe on the forging incident. Earlier, the college filed a case before the police alleging that Kasaragod native K Vidya, a former SFI leader, had forged teaching experience certificate from Maharaja’s College and used it to get a job.

"The fake document does not include the emblem or seal of our college. While Vidya was studying at the college, the result of her studies had not yet come out. However, she created a fake experience certificate claiming she had taught here as a guest lecturer. Based on our primary investigation, she did not receive help from anyone in the college," he said. He added that the college filed a complaint to examine whether any other individual has similarly created fake documents in the name of the college.
