Dear Ms. Khyati,
It is very important for an employer to know & understand a new hire/hired employee about his/her Experience, Education background whether bona fide to the position applied.
There are couple of best ways which I know -
== Calling up the University or College attended by that candidate/applicant and get connected to the section where he pursued his course and seak to the Department. (Entrust you purpose to be explained in clarity).
== An employer can ask a job applicant to refer one or more names of his Professor/Lecturer from his college. The employer can then check the educational credentials by calling up the noted contact to confirm that the applicant did attend college for that period.

In addition to what have been contributed by Sharmila, please look for the details, such as water marks and holograms. Fudge documents cant produce a water mark, it requires an authorisation from government. Small details such as the dates and uniformity in the certificate number. You will find the complete indentation in original documents .
Wish you all the best!

Dear Khyati,
You could hire an antecedent verification agency for checking the credentials of the Prospective Employees.
They have tie up with most of the Colleges/Universities, so that you get the authentic verification. Definitely they will charge. :)

Well before going to look for verification of educational certificate procedure, Interviewer /recruiter/employer must understand the concern /worries that put them into this situation.

Suggestions provided by Sharmila ji and Ms (Cite Contribution) are appreciated, but before going further, I would like to ask a question

-How many of Interviewer /recruiter/employer (in your knowledge) likes to go for verification of Educational Certificates of a candidate/employee in general.

So far the query/questions been answered but I feel the concern that ask any Interviewer /recruiter/employer to verify the respective educational certificates of an employee/candidate and whether they are original or fake, is matter most actually.

Like believe and used to say, “There would be no answer without a question” which needs to be understood before going further. Answer of a question can be interested and in many but one thing is certain that it gives us lot to learn.

Lastly the best way to verify the certificate (if required) is the way suggested by Ms (Cite Contribution) above and for further, one can go to the ways suggested by Sharmila ji.

Calling up the University or College is not going to work as you will not get the required response from the eductaional institutions reason being no one knows who is on the side of the call and the purpose behind it. It may be fake call or may be for some destructive purpose.
I personally do not consider it proper to give/share any details with anyone unless and untill the identity of the inquirer is establish. This I have made our company policy too. No information sharing on phone except info on our products.

Dear khyati shah
To verify education of a particular candidate you have to reach the University/Board of that education. Every University and Board has their own way of verification process. Some University/Board can provide feedback over a phone call/ online email, whereas for some universities/Boards ask for some documentation (Like you have to fill up a particular form) and fee via Demand Draft and for some universities/Boards you have to do a field visit.
Most of government universities do not reply for 2-3 or 6 months or never for your query.
So the better suggestion is that, you must hire an agency for this. There are some nice agencies today which can help you for this. I have personally worked with the agencies and they are good in their work.
Also you will get a proof for the verification from the agencies means a verification report.

Dear friends,
I would consider writing a "Strictly confidential" Regd. letter to the concerned Head of the Institution seeking their confirmation of the qualification one has attributed with a copy of the qualifying degree/diploma is a workable, faster solution. Ofcourse one can hire a "Verification agency" for a price. but from whom you would verify with about their credentials if the agency is an unknown one, may be from the 2nd case onwards you may start believing them). Many companies especially Govt. sector use the services of nearby police office to do such verification (not ruling out they might extract 'something' from the candidate, not expected to be 100% credible.).

Dear All,

We insist that the candidate furnishes information about his qualification right from SSLC onwards till his/ her recent academic achievements. He also needs to produce the original certificates obtained by him/ her in support of the above.

We also insist that the candidate produces the convocation certificate for the degree/ PG qualification obtained by him.

In some instances we have observed that candidates make a declaration in the application blank that they have completed a degree/ PG qualification but when probed further we have found out that it was merely a course completion certificate. A course completion certificate does not mean that the candidate has completed his degree/ PG. Hence, insist on their marklists, provisional certificates (if they have completed their degree/PG recently, because universities take over one year to issue convocation certificates) convocation certificates.

Many companies verify the certificates only after they make the selection. But in my opinion by then it will be too late. This is because in case you have identified a candidate and have decided to hire him and during the verification process you find that he has not completed the academic achievement declared by him then you will be in a fix as to whether to hire him or not. On the other hand if you complete the process in the preliminary stage, you will save this trouble.

The verification process done in the preliminary stage assumes significance as it helps you in fixing up their salary structure. You may have to compare the candidate in terms of qualification/ experience with the existing employees and then fix the remuneration/ grade etc.,
