>>Hyderabad: Â The number of techies being caught for using fake experience certificate for placements are on a rise in IT hubs such as Hyderabad and Banglore. Â Some major IT firms have filed complaints after finding that the experience certificates submitted by some of their employees were fake.
Cases of using fake experience certificates were reported in the past, but companies haven’t registred a case against the frauds. Â Recently, Mahindra Satyam has filed complaint against 15 of its employees for submitting fake experience certificates, and the police have registerd cheating cases against them. Â Most of the culprits are reportedly absconding. Â Sources said the majority of fraudsters are from Bangalore and Tamil Nadu.
According to reports, around 25 percents of IT staff have gained jobs using fake experience certificates. Â IT firms’ reluctance to admit unexperienced staff is one of the reason for the increasing the trend.
