Raymond Filipe Fernandes, the very controversial son of Goa’s Deputy Speaker Isidore Fernandes has been left out from the list of the 16 who were selected in January this year for the post of Awal Karkun by the North Goa Collectorate. Raymond was one of the 16 selected for the post while the other 15 were allowed to join work today.
After a complaint that was filed by Adv. Aires Rodrigues against Raymond Fernandes, the Chief Secretary had sought the comments of the North Goa Collector that the son of the Deputy Speaker had submitted a fake BA degree along with his application for the post of Awal Karkun.
Following Adv. Aires Rodrigues’s complaint the Chief Secretary had sought a thorough probe into the selection, the North Goa Collector asked the Registrar of Goa University to verify whether the degree submitted by Raymond Fernandes was genuine while the whole selection process was kept on hold.
The Registrar of the Goa University in his reply informed the North Goa Collector that the BA degree from the Lucknow based Bhartiya Shiksha Parishad submitted by Raymond Fernandes for the post of Awal Karkun was from a fake University.
The Registrar of the Goa University also drew the attention of the North Goa Collector that the University Grants Commission by a notification dated 30th June 2016 had notified the list of fake universities which included the Lucknow based Bhartiya Shiksha Parishad. The Registrar also sent the Collector a copy of the judgment of the Madras High Court delivered on 22nd September 2017 and that of the Calcutta High Court pronounced on June 19th 2018 holding that the Bhartiya Shiksha Parishad was a fake University.
