No. Unless you are sure that the degree is fake and that candidate is using that fake degree in cheating, or misleading public. Then you have to specify the larger public interest involved and can convince PIO and get a duplicate degree/marks list. (Even in some colleges, this information is available in addition to Universities)

Dear member, kindly read RTI Act to understand about larger public interest because it is not possible to explain you all this in post.

A doctor using fake degree endangers the Public, A teacher with a fake degree is capable of destroying the careers of several students, any unqualified but recruited may rob the chances of more deserving candidate. SO every fake degree is against Public interest. If it is fake, you will get response. Even otherwise, there is no loss for you, PIO may not provide information. But when third party information is solicited, it is desirable to mention of larger public interest and you need not convince all, convincing PIO is enough as that fake degree holder spoiled chances of a genuine degree holder who deserves such appointment.

Just file application without much expectation. If it is fake, believe me PIO has to certainly provide the information.

There must be some prima face evidence that the degree is fake.

 

Holding a fake degree is against law. Use of such fake degree for personal gain is detrimental to public interest. A person knowingly indulged in illegality, cannot claim privacy to protect his own illegal acts. Therefore public interest in disclosure of information to expose such illegal acts, outweigh the protected privacy of that individual. That is the larger public interest in this issue.

      Hi everyone,
       
      I have a confusion whether PIO at RPO (Regional Passport Office?) would also be able to give information about application which is stuck at the police department for verification?
       
       
      If I check the status of my application at the "http://passport.chd.nic.in/" it tells me the status as "Police Report has not been received."
      I wonder if RPO would be able to do something about it, or shall i have to write a different application addressing to different PIO who can get me information from Police Department.
       
      Thanks for all the info I have got so far on this site.
       
      Best Regards.

      A certain foreign Government has asked for verification of a Doctor's Post graduate degree certificate obtained in India. But received no reply since a year. I want to know whom to contact in Dr MGR University and in Madras University for this purpose to finish the job.
