Fake Visas racket busted in India

16 07 2007

The Delhi (India) Police has recently busted a major fake visa racket and confiscated fake passports and visas from a person who is allegedly into making fake visas, stickers and holograms etc.

The Police raided his hideout and confiscated a lot of incriminating material that includes the man’s laptop, a spare hard disk, one scanner and printer, fake dies and holograms etc.

It is amazing as to how the fake passports and visa business thrives in a country like India that is on an impressive and consistent growth path. The Government needs to be more vigilant and the judiciary system quicker and merciless to bring the culprits to book so that the nefarious practices of the counterfeiters may be curbed.


Holograms to fight fake bus passes in Chandigarh (India)

19 05 2007

The Chandigarh Transport Undertaking (CTU) would introduce holograms on its bus passes to fight counterfeits eat into its revenues. A hologram is to be used on the passes so as to avoid any duplication of it.

The decision has come in the wake of fake bus passes that have been confiscated by the CTU inspection staff during its raid in the buses a few days ago.

CTU officials would soon be talking to the various hologram manufacturers in Delhi for finalizing the details including negotiations in regard to the price, the number of supply of the passes on monthly basis, and whether they could come up with other foolproof features that cannot be duplicated.
