Education minister says he will make available his marksheets

MUMBAI: Maharashtra school education minister Vinod Tawde said he will make available his Std X and XII mark sheets to all those who are seeking it.

Tawde claims to be a Bachelor of Electronics from the Dnyaneshwar Vidyapeeth, Pune. However, the course is not recognised. He has been accused of falsely claiming to be an engineering graduate in his election affidavit. Tawde has, however, defended his declaration saying he was aware the course was not recognised.

In a press release, Tawde said mark sheets are made available only to the candidate and would not be given even under the Right to Information Act. He, therefore, asked all those seeking his mark sheets to take it directly from him.
