Around 2,000 assistant teachers working in government primary schools across Uttar Pradesh are suspected of using fake disability certificates for getting jobs.
The education department has initiated an enquiry into the suspicions as the teachers may have submitted fake certificates during the hiring process.
The information was recently discovered by the State Council for Education Research and Training
A total of 1,932 teachers have been asked by the SCERT committee to appear before it with documents for verification.
The applicants are accused of using fake handicap certificates to join the basic education department as assistant teachers resulting in the unemployment of people who are actually disabled and deserve the jobs.
