MUMBAI, July 26 -- More than 170 students seeking admissions to master of business administration (MBA) and master of management studies (MMS) courses in the state submitted fake mark sheets of two national entrance tests, with five of them even securing admissions in top B-schools in the city, including Jamnalal Bajaj Institute of Management Studies (JBIMS).

The issue came to light after the state common entrance test (CET) cell received a complaint about discrepancies in the merit list via email.

The cell has started an inquiry and sent notices to five students.

Director of JBIMS Kavita Laghate said, "We have reported to the CET cell that one student was admitted [on the basis of fake result]." p4
