Today WCC are almost in every field. However, it is rapidly increasing in the educational system as well. White-collar crime refers to the criminal activity carried out by highly educated people from higher levels of society. It may also be referred to as an offence against highly qualified and educated people. Further, these crimes include those in the sector of the judiciary, healthcare, and educational professions, as well as other professions. Thus, White collar crime is a rising issue in India as well. The main cause of educational crimes is the expansion of the commercial and information technology industries. Hence, modern technology developments bring to professional crime new perspectives. Today, White collar crimes are also common in the public sector, including the educational system . Although it can be challenging to figure out what kind of white-collar fraud might involve educators and administrators in schools. Nowadays educational institutions become a major hotspot for white-collar crimes. With establishing fraudulent and false information about their organisations, the executive boards of such organisations are in a position to obtain considerable government funding. Because high class individuals are engaged, these kinds of crimes and scams are particularly challenging to detect and prove. However, it is crucial to safeguard the educational system from fraud and fraudulent activities. This study will outline the usual kinds of white-collar crimes which have become common in India over the past couple of decades. Also, it is essential to control the white collar crimes especially in the educational system as it may weaken the future growth as well the economy of the whole country.
