The Higher Education Commission has warned students against the impersonation of attestation agents. The commission has cautioned students about individuals who pose as agents and offer them aid in having their academic credentials and degrees authenticated. The notice was issued on the HEC’s official Twitter account so that applicants may follow the commission’s guidelines on this topic.
Agents of False Authentication
In certain circumstances, the imposters defraud applicants by affixing bogus HEC stamps or tickets to original degrees and academic credentials. The commission has said unequivocally that degrees with false stamps would not be accepted. A notice has also been issued in this respect to alert the students. Applicants are recommended to follow the commission’s normal process for degree attestation rather than engaging in fraudulent acts. Furthermore, strong action will be taken against pupils who have bogus degree attestation.
The Higher Education Commission has informed students of the correct process for having their degrees and documentation certified by the HEC. Candidates must complete the online application form on the HEC web page. Candidates must first establish a user account before submitting the online application for degree attestation. The candidate will get a confirmation e-mail or SMS after submitting the application. Candidates who get the notice have the option of going to the office, scheduling an appointment, or sending papers to the HEC through courier. When the attestation is finished, the HEC will notify the applicants by message or email. Candidates must pay an attestation cost of Rs1,000. All relevant original papers, as well as photocopies of the documents, must be submitted by the applicants.
