In a recent revelation made by the British immigration officials, it has been found that up to 40% of the Indian students who applied for UK student visa used fraudulent means to make their application perfect. These are the results derived from the number of applications received by the British government in the first three months of this year alone.
Such kind of a surge in deceptive activities to secure an entry into UK can be owed to the upcoming new rules to be introduced by the British government for the students applying for a UK student visa starting this April. These new rules are said to be quite rigid and more stringent than the present rules in existence.
Perhaps this can be cited as the reason for the growing unrest amongst students from India to get admission into UK universities and colleges.
According to a British senior immigration official, around 200 Indian students who applied for a course in accountancy programme in UK presented their applications with all the apt documents. But upon interview round, barely 6 or 7 could manage to speak in English.
This is not the first time that British government has aired its concerns regarding the rise in illegal immigration to UK by Indian students. Last year i.e. in January 2010, UK government temporarily suspended the visa applications from North India along with Nepal and Bangladesh due to the unprecedented rise in the applications received for UK student visa.
To stop the fraudulent and captive activities for gaining an entry into UK are being cited as the strong reasons for the UK government’s new rules.
