Hindi Passed Certificate - Selling Like Hot Cakes

As per order No.ED/HINDI/EXAM /2009; dated Kohima the 13th Aug 2012, the Directorate of School Education has advertised for 394 posts of under graduate Hindi Teacher. The eligibility criteria for the post is the candidate should possess a minimum qualification of PU/HSSLC/Diploma in Hindi with 45% mark from any recognized University/Board. It is found that some candidates who secured less than the requisite percentage (less than 45%) are also submitting their forms after manipulating their original marks obtained in the marksheets. How they are doing manipulation is-by surrendering their original mark sheet to the concerned Institute from where they completed the course, a brand new with high percentage mark sheet are being issued by the Institute. This dirty business is being carried out on payment of handsome amount (Rs. 7000 to 10000 per certificate). Some prospective buyers disclosed that it is selling like a hot cake in Dimapur. The only thing one needs to have is money.

The mind –boggling question here is who has authorized those private Hindi Institutes to issue/sell passed certificates randomly? The Directorate of School Education should constitute a committee to probe/investigate it and to verify the authenticity of passed certificates.  The All Nagaland Hindi Teachers Union should also check this illegal sale of certificates which is happening just in front of the union. If this evil practice of unauthorized sale /issue of Hindi passed Certificates is not stop at once, it will ultimately tarnish the whole image of ‘department authority and department will be landed into another serious scandal within no time’.

With same tactics of marks manipulation as state above, many candidates who could not appeared in the last Hindi Teacher recruitment exam (held in Feb 2012) due to low percentage are going to appear the forth coming written exam slated to be held on 22nd Sept. 12.

Hindi being a National Language, Government of India (GOI) is trying her best to develop/improve it in every state of the country. In line with this, it has granted more than 1300 posts of Hindi Teacher to our state since last year. It should be the bounden duty of state Govt. or more so the department of School Education to recruit only deserving persons to the posts. But when practice of illegal sale of Hindi certificates remains unabated, how one can expect from unqualified teacher to improve Hindi Education in the state. It will be a distant dream. The concerned authority should take an immediate step so as to curb this practice and person involved in it be booked.
