    Mumbai, Oct 9: India's future seems to be in danger as an education scam, costing Rs 1,000 crore, has been unearthed in Maharshtra.

    Citing the scam, the state government started investigation to find out how many students on the rolls of state run and government aided schools are bogus.

    "We found that some divisions altogether did not exist. In some places, same students were made to sit for the morning school and afternoon schools during the inspection," stated School Education Minister, Rajendra Darda.

    A survey, conducted by the state government, shows that 1.4 lakh out of 7 lakh school students in the list of 3500 schools are bogus. The survey was carried out only in Nanded district of the state. Now, another 35 districts will come under the same survey.

    The final survey report will be tabled before the state cabinet within one week, sources informed on Sunday, Oct 9.
