There are mostly some mistakes in the fake documents created by misusers of technology.  As in the shared fake document, the word “Gujarat” is misspelt as“Gujrat”. The name “Rajender Kumar” is spelt as “Rajendra Kumar”. Some formalities that are mandatory in official documents are not followed by the creators of fake documents. The fake notice is copied to none of the officials, whereas the official document is copied to ‘Prl Secy/ Secy H of all States/UTs’. Just a little awareness may save us getting duped in day to day life.
