TAIF — The Ministry of Higher Education will start verifying higher university degree certificates (master’s and doctorate degrees) of government employees effective January 1.

The move is aimed at putting an end to the misuse of bogus certificates to secure jobs and promotions, according to sources at the ministry.

The ministry will undertake the verification process with the cooperation of the Ministry of Civil Service on a priority basis.

The ministry will be sending soon a circular to all government departments instructing them to submit original master’s and doctorate degree certificates of their employees for verification.

The ministry would then determine whether the certificates are bona fide and are from the recognized universities and institutions or not
