|Controversies||• Forgery complaint for his academic certificates: In August 2021, the Allahabad High Court ordered a probe to check the authenticity of the academic certificates and mark sheets of Maurya. The court took the action after a forgery complaint filed by Right to Information activist and district-level BJP functionary Diwakar Nath Tripathi to additional chief judicial magistrate Namrata Singh’s court against Maurya. In his complaint Tripathi claimed that “When Maurya filed his nomination for the Assembly elections from Allahabad West in 2007, he had furnished two mark sheets and an intermediate (Plus II) certificate from the Hindi Sahitya Sammelan, which is not recognised by any educational board. Allahabad High Court and the Supreme Court had in the past ruled that the Sammelan’s degrees and certificates are not recognised.” However, Maurya dismissed the allegation as 'a politically motivated allegation before the Assembly elections.'
