Fearing Legal Action, Three School Teachers With Fake Degrees Resign In Sambalpur

Sambalpur: As many as three teachers have resigned from the service in Rairakhol of Sambalpur district today fearing government action for possessing fake educational degrees.

Reportedly, the matter came to fore after the District Education Officer received a complaint from a source that three teachers from Tribanpur Upper Primary School, Gargadbahal Primary School, and Rairakhol Town Primary School of Rairakhol town under Sambalpur District have produced fake educational certificates during joining service. Following this, the DEO started verifying the certificates from the education department.

Later, they were asked to appear with the original certificates as it was doubtful about the educational qualifications and credentials submitted when applying and joining the job.

However, three teachers, including Renu Lata Pradhan of Tribanpur Upper Primary School, Monalisha Chand of Gargadbahal Primary School, Minati Bala Mall of Khandadhip Primary School, resigned on Wednesday to avoid facing legal action against them.
