The Canadian Border Security Agency (CBSA) has reportedly issued deportation notices to over 700 Indian students whose admission letters to educational institutions were found to be fake.

According to reports, the students applied for student visas, between 2018 and 2022, after their 12th grade through consultant Brijesh Mishra's Education Migration Services in Jalandhar, Punjab. Mishra charged over US$ 19,000 for each student for all expenses, including admission fees to a premier institute Humber college.

Speaking to, one student revealed that Mishra informed the students who landed in Toronto that the seats were filled and they would have to wait till next semester or could take admissions in other colleges. He refunded the college admission fee which increased students' belief in him.

The CBSA found the admission offers to be fake when students submitted them while applying for permanent residency in Canada. According to media reports, Mishra has not been in office and his website of Education Migration Services has been taken down.

The accused was earlier charged in 2013 for forging documents to send students abroad under the company called Easy Way Immigration Consultancy.
