It will be difficult to avoid teachers working on the basis of fake documents. The education department is going to test the credentials of more than 35,000 basic and junior teachers from class X to B.Ed. However, this investigation is also financially heavy for the education department. It only costs Rs 500 for a teacher to take a bachelor’s degree. The cost for testing BTC-DLED certificates varies from tenth to tenth.
The investigation is being conducted under the direction of the High Court. Earlier, it was planned to submit the teachers’ certificates to the High Court.

After taking the certificate from the teachers, the DEO has to get the certificate from the board, DIET, the university.
Document check on government expenditure
