EAM Jaishankar says it is unfair to punish students with deportation

June 8, 2023

India’s external affairs minister Dr S Jaishankar has said that it is ‘unfair to punish’ students who are facing deportation from Canada over fraudulent admissions stating that it is not their fault.

Jaishankar who addressed a media briefing over 9 years of Indian foreign policy of the Narendra Modi-led BJP government said that students have been victims of a fraud and to deport them was unfair.

It may be recollected that recently, it came to light that over 700 students from India, who were mostly from Punjab were at the risk of faking deportation after their admissions were found to be fraudulent. These students had secured seats via an agency. The incident came to light only when these graduates applied for jobs, where a background verification found their admissions to be illegal.

“There has been a case of students, which Canadian authorities are claiming studied in college where they should not have. They applied for work permits and began facing challenges. We have taken up this case from the time it was reported. In this case, what students did was in good faith. If they were misled, action must be taken against those at fault who committed this fraud.

“It is but, unfair to punish students who were misled and undertook education in good faith. I think the Canadians will be considerate and accept that it would be unfair if a student has done no wrong,” he said.
