LAHORE: Opposition in Punjab Assembly has presented a resolution against the Axact company’s scandal of issuing millions of fake degrees, NewsOne reported on Wednesday.

As per details, opposition leader Mahmood-ur-Rehman submitted the resolution stating that the act of Axact company has defamed Pakistan in international community and has also distorted the national image.

During the session, opposition showed concerns over the inefficient performance of accountability departments as they were failed to unveil the illegal business of Axact company.

The resolution further urged the federal government to take stern action against the corrupt officials of the company.

Earlier, Axact, claiming to be one of the biggest IT company of Pakistan, has been alleged of being involved in a massive fake degree scam by New York Times (NYT). If you are a simple matric and want to become a doctor, there is no better place than this. High school degree can be obtained for just 350 US dollars while a doctorate degree can be bought for just 4000 US dollars.

According to details, AXACT has been alleged of running hundreds of websites claiming to be universities and schools offering distance learning but instead of providing distance learning, these universities, having no physical existence at all, are just selling degrees and earning millions of dollars. New York Times says that this organization is doing nothing but selling fake degrees for money.

Further, The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) has issued an official notification ordering Axact chief executive officer (CEO) Shoaib Ahmed Sheikh to appear before the department for interrogation in the fake degrees scandal.
