Two relevant ministries have confirmed that Ramesh Erramalli’s educational qualifications are not false.

Erramalli’s dispute with his condominium’s security guard over a rule by the management which went viral was about the imposition of S$10 as parking fees for visitors still parked at the property after 11pm.

In the video, Erramalli was seen behaving aggressively and rudely towards the security guard. In the backlash that followed, many netizens probed his LinkedIn account, accusing him of falsifying his qualifications in order to secure a job locally.

In response to media queries, the Ministry of Manpower (MOM) and the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) said on Friday (Nov 8) in a joint statement that they found “no evidence” to substantiate these allegations after looking into Erramalli’s qualifications.

The Ministry of Home Affairs also said last month that Erramalli is a Singapore citizen who obtained his citizenship under the Family Ties scheme. He is married to a Singapore-born citizen.

Erramalli’s guests had come over at about 10.30pm for Deepavali festivities.

The video shows the security officer asking what time the visitor would leave, followed by the resident questioning if guests could not visit him after 11pm on Deepavali.

“I bought your f***ing property for S$1.5 million, you know? This is S$1.5 million, okay?” says Ramesh.

After the security officer said he would let the management know of the situation, the resident replied with a stern: “Tell the management to f*** off.”

Netizens clamoured for Erramalli to be fired from his place of employment, a private investment bank JP Morgan.

In its statement, MOM said, “MOM takes a risk-based approach towards our credential checks. We conduct additional checks and require submission of verification proof of the qualifications declared in selected applications.

“MOM verifies the authenticity of submitted qualifications through direct verification with the issuing institutions and through third-party screening agencies”. /TISGFollow us on Social Media
