Forty-one Indian students have been issued deportation notices after their India-based immigration agents secured visas for them with false documents.

The students say they were unaware their documents were falsified. The Government says it's their responsibility to ensure they weren't.

This morning's protest saw around 40 people march on National Party list MP Parmjeet Pamar's office in Mt Roskill.

Many of students facing deportation live in the area.
