A government high school headmaster in Keonjhar was suspended for allegedly submitting fake certificates to get the job.

The teacher has been identified as Susil Kumar Behera who was the headmaster of Ramachandrapur High School under Saharapada block in the district.

As per reports, there were allegations against Behera for submitting fake certificates. Based on the allegations, the Higher Secondary Board launched an inquiry. 

Subsequently, it was found during the verification that Behera had submitted forged certificates following which he was placed under suspension.

“During the verification, it was found that Behera has not appeared in any BEd examination at all. Rather, he submitted a forged BEd certificate to get the appointment. He has been placed under suspension following the departmental proceedings against him,” said Keonjhar District Educational Officer (DEO), Purna Chandra Sethi.

“We will carry out a certificate-inspection drive in the district on a regular basis to detect the teachers producing fake certificates for securing jobs,” he said.

Though the education department of the State government is verifying the certificates of the teachers in a strict manner, a large number of teachers are found to have submitted fake or forged certificates to get appointments.
