Hi Neha,
There are organization who do the verification work, you could approach them for the same. Most of this firms are run by ex-defence or police personal. They are very good at this, because this job is very time consuming and we may not be able to do it accurately. So it is advisable to outsource this activity to such organization.

Ya thats true you can contact verification company who do all these things and even you can drop a mail to college authority for details and cross check them by one simple call.

If you get them verified by an outside agency or take up on yourself the responsibilities of verification and call the concerned educational institution to enquire whether so and so ever studied in your college and how many respect such enquries as worth answering and respond to you immediately., more so when the enquiry is from a non-governmental organisation and from establishments in private sector. It may take few days to few months more so when the educational institution is loacted in the State outside the State in which your company is loacted .What do you do till then?Do you keep your appointments pending till then?

You can consider the following steps on the basis of expediency and prudence.

1) You should have a provision in your disciplinary rules that submitting any false information or documenst at the time of employment shall be a misconduct.

2) Bring this to the notice of the prospective candiadtes.

3) Obtain a declaration from him that the educational certificates are genuine and that he would render himslef liable to termination of employment, if found false subsequently.

4)Call for the originals of the certificates and verify the photo copies with them to ensure that both match with each other.

5) Look for characteristics of the certificates ie. look for the quality of paper, print, margins and borders etc. to asceratin whether it looks like a certificate issued by a college.If a candiadte from the same state/area has submitted a certifiacte from a college in the same state/ area, compare the certificates of the two candidates.

5) Look for the name of the college, their emblems etc. Normally popular names and emblems are known to every one.You can refer it to a colleague of yours, who comes from that area to verify whther such institution exists there.

5)Look for designations of authorities who signed them to ensure that the certificates are signed by proper and competent authrities.You can easily know this from the certificates of other candiadtes or those of other employees who ahve already joined your comapny by referring to their files.

6)If, after intial scrutiny,you find some discrepancies primafacie, you can ask the candiadte few probing questions about the college, who was principal etc. If the candiadte does not answer those questions to your satisfaction, you can earmark those certifiactes for further verification.

7) If you have a branch in the area or state in which the colllge is loacted, you can depute your employee to that college for expeditious resposne rather than entrusting to an outside agency and ask him to submit his report


However the above all are only suggestions. You need to discuss with your management and decide as to how to go about verification.

First of all, with advanced photo editing and printing tools, it is very difficult to identify fake currency, leave apart certificates.
Certain universities like IGNOU give the score cards online, we can check it by logging on to their website. I have been lucky to find out some face certificates that way.
get the details of the institution they studied and send a letter of verification verification with all details and a copy of the TC. If it is fake, they will respond immediately.
Also, mentioning during the interview itself that the educational and experience certificates will be verified will ensure that candidates with fake certificates will not attend for further process.
