Prof. N Sethuraman, the registrar of SRM University, lodged a complaint with Chennai city police that the university has come across several fake websites, names of illegal agents, individuals and companies, all whom claim to be agents of SRM University.

People posing as agents of professional colleges cheat students of as much as Rs 100 crore every year by promising seats in various educational institutes, police revealed even as parents gear up to get their children admitted to engineering and medical courses.
“My assumption is that innocent parents give away at least Rs100 crore to fake agents. Last year alone, the proprietor of a professional college in the city repaid several parents more than Rs 8 crore that had been swindled by agents from parents promising admission for their children,” a police official who is familiar with such complaints told Deccan Chronicle.
