Higher Education Commission has decided to refer all the fake degrees, confiscated during the attestation process, for legal investigation to the relevant authority.     

The decision has been taken to eliminate the menace of counterfeit educational documents, which is one of the major causes of corruption in the society.   

The HEC , on average, attests 600 documents daily at its Islamabad, Karachi, Lahore and Peshawar offices. The step will help deter corrupt elements in the society, as verification of educational documents is now mandatory for higher studies, employment within the country and abroad and visa processing.
