Patna: A Bihar school issued a transfer certificate that shows that a three-day-old student cleared Class VIII exams.
According to the transfer certificate, the student was born on March 20, 2007 while he passed the Class VIII exam on March 23, 2007.
The student was identified as Prince Kumar. “I passed Class VIII on March 23, 2007 from Gosaidas Tengrari Government School in Muzaffarpur. The school provided the TC with my date of birth as March 20, 2007. Interestingly, the principal of the school also signed it without noticing the error,” Kumar was quoted as saying by news agency IANS.
“When I reported the matter to the school and went there to meet the principal, the school authorities threw me out of the school,” claimed the student.
“My father approached the district education officer (DEO) regarding the matter who admitted the clerical mistake,” Kumar added.
“It was a clerical mistake and we will rectify it soon. We have also initiated departmental action against school administration,” the agency quoted Muzaffarpur DEO as saying.
