Proxy means "authority to represent someone else when he is absent" In Indian college context, it means that the authority had been given by one student to another to represent him for the purpose of attendance when he is absent. Unfortunately, it is "illegal" in colleges.
It has not happened yet, but if anyone tries this in my class, it will be an instant "Fail" grade to the person who attempts a proxy for someone else.
I like to blog about various topics ranging from education in IITs to social issues in India and US. All opinions and views presented here are my own and not of my employer.
