NEET PG 2016 illegalities: Delhi High Court seeks Centre, police reply on probe plea

The Delhi High Court today sought the response of the Centre and the police on a plea that demanded a court-monitored CBI/SIT probe into the alleged illegalities in the National Eligibility Entrance Test held in 2016 for admitting students in post-graduate medical courses. A bench of Acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice CHari Shankar also issued a notice to the National Board ofExamination (NBE), the Medical Council of India, M/s Prometrics Private Ltd and the CBI on a plea which sought tohand over the case to the probe agency.

M/s Prometrics Private Ltd had sub-contracted with CMS IT Services Private Ltd to hire engineers, site supervisors and other staff to prepare exam labs for conducting NEET PGexamination at 43 centres across the country. The bench also expressed concern over the delay in concluding the investigation and said “this is a very serious matter. Therefore, the authorities need to file their status report/response in one week.”

The court, which listed the matter for further hearing on September 10, was hearing a petition filed by Dr Anand Rai, who claims to be the whistleblower in Vyapam scam.

Rai, through his counsel Vaibhav Srivastava, submitted that the crime branch of Delhi Police was not competent to handle the investigation of this nature which required technical expertise. The petitioner said that at this point of time, Delhi Police was acting like a “post office, still awaiting technical data from NBE and M/s Prometrics Ltd and asking Delhi Lt Governor to provide a technical team for analysis of the technical data.”

The CBI’s special standing counsel Rajdeepa Behura said the police’s crime branch was already investigating the matter in which a FIR has been lodged and charge sheet filed. An FIR was lodged on February 1 against 11 persons and charge sheet was filed on July 9 this year under various sections of the IPC including 419 (cheating by personation), 420 (cheating) and 120B (criminal conspiracy) and under the Information and Technology Act.

The plea sought transfer of investigation from the crime branch to Special Investigative Team (SIT) comprising members having expertise in Computer Science and/or an investigation by the CBI or any other competent central agency.

neet, neet pg, neet pg 2016It alleged that till date, NBE and Prometrics have not cooperated with the investigation and no information with respect to technical details as sought by the police has been furnished, thus delaying the matter and providing time to the culprits to erase the evidence.

“Further, it appears that the officials of the NBE and Prometrics may be involved in the scam, thus making the present issue as sensitive and to ensure the cooperation of the NBE and Prometrics, a court-monitored investigation is warranted,” it claimed.

It has also sought direction to the NBE to initiate appropriate proceedings against the candidates whose names have been disclosed in the charge sheet for allegedly securing admissions in NEET-PG, 2017 using unfair or fraudulent means.

It also sought directions to the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare that NEET examination is conducted by a public authority with proper oversight and involvement of government officials.

Join hands to resolve Mumbai University result crisis: Bombay HC to varsity, state government

The University of Mumbai and the Maharashtra government on Monday received a notice from the Bombay High Court regarding the delay in the declaration of this year’s law exam results. Seeking a response, the bench said that the “state and the university must join hands to tackle the crisis”.

Affected students had filed petitions which were heard by the bench of Justices Anoop V Mohta and Bharati Dangre on Monday. They called for the authorities to be directed to delay no further and announce the results.

Three final year students even demanded monetary compensation for the chaos surrounding the final semester answer sheets of the LLB course. They pointed out that this delay has resulted in their missing out on several opportunities for higher studies.

The petitioners claimed that statutory rules make it mandatory for the university to declare the results within 45 days of the exams and that the academic year must begin by August 1.

Petitioners blamed the on-screen assessment system which has recently been installed without adequate infrastructure as the main reason behind the delay. According to a petitioner’s counsel, the university has also been rumoured to have mixed some students’ answer sheets of the supplementary and the main exams. There were even reports of missing answer sheets.

IIMC deemed university status idea to be studied by new UGC panel

The University Grants Commission (UGC) has set up a panel to study a proposal to grant deemed university status to the Indian Institute of Mass Communication (IIMC). The IIMC, one of the prestigious journalism schools in the country which functions under the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, offers diploma courses in journalism, advertising and public relations.

According to a senior HRD Ministry official, the four- member committee, which will analyse the proposal by the IIMC, will be headed by BK Kuthiala, the vice-chancellor of Makhanlal Chaturvedi University, Bhopal.

“The other members are Sanjay Wadwalkar, Chairman of Panjab University’s School of Communication; G Ravindran – HOD of the University of Madras’ School of Journalism and Sunita Siwach from the UGC,” the official said.

ugc, iimc,, iimc courses, iimc admission, Indian Institute of Mass Communication, journalism, j school, education news, indian expressThe panel will submit its recommendation after examining the proposal and the UGC will then form another committee which will conduct site visits, the official added. The idea to grant deemed university status to the IIMC is not a new one. The Information and Broadcasting Ministry had also approved the plan last year.

“UGC forming a committee to study the idea is an indicator that things are moving steadily. Once the university status is granted, the institution will also expand in the academic sector rather than just being an industry oriented school,” IIMC Director General KG Suresh said.

The IIMC has expanded from two campuses in Delhi and Dhenkanal to six campuses across the country — Jammu, Amravati, Kottayam and Aizawl being the new ones — over the last five years. During a review of higher education institutes by the Niti Aayog in June, it was recommended that the IIMC be merged with either Jawaharlal Nehru University’a Centre for Media Studies or Jamia Millia Islamia’s AJK Mass Communication Research Centre.

Mumbai University result delay: Bombay High Court asks state, varsity how they will tackle situation

The Bombay High Court on Monday asked the state government and the University of Mumbai to inform the court how it will tackle the situation while hearing several petitions related to inconvenience caused because of the delay in declaration of results due to the new on-screen marking system.

A bench headed by Justice Anoop V Mohta was hearing petitions related to the matter, including one filed by law students seeking compensation of Rs 10 lakh for the loss of educational and employment opportunities because of the inordinate delay by the university in declaring results.

‘So lucky, you know… I will be first engineering graduate from my tribe’

There is a spring in C Kalyani’s step as she walks out of the girls’ hostel on the sprawling, leafy campus of Jawaharlal NehruTechnology University (JNTU) at Sulthanpur in Telangana. It is her first day in college. The diminutive girl is the first from her vanishing community, the Primitive Tribal Group (PTG) Thoti, to go to an engineering college.

“I cannot believe that I am here on this huge and beautiful campus and such a great college. I am so lucky, you know? It is a dream come true,” she says. She arrived at the campus earlier this month to complete the formalities for joining. “This is the first time I am staying so far away from home. It is a six-hour drive to my home from here,” says Kalyani, who belongs to Dubarpet in Adilabad district.

“I am happier because my roommate happens to be a friend from the tribal coaching centre,” she says. Her roommate, R Soumika, is from the Lambada community and has joined electronics and communications engineering. Kalyani, who aims to become a scientist, has opted for material science and nanotechnology engineering. She is eagerly waiting for classes to start.

“Especially maths, I love it,” she says. “I like the regimen here. Breakfast is at 8 am at the dining hall, then it’s back to room to get ready to go to classes at 10. At 1:30 we will break for lunch and go back at 2 and study again till 4:30. Then, back to the room. I am loving it already.” Fighting against various odds including poverty in their communities,Kalyani and Soumika made it up to Intermediate, then were selected for coaching for JEE and Engineering Agricultural Medical Common Entrance Test (Eamcet) along with 28 other tribal students at Telangana’s tribal students’ welfare residential schools in Adilabad district under a special coaching programme called Star-30. The tribal students cracked JEE Main, JEE Advanced (for IITs) or Eamcet to secure admission to top engineering colleges.

Jawaharlal Nehru Technology University, JNTU Telangana, JNTU Sulthanpur, Education News, Latest Education News, Indian Express, Indian Express NewsKalyani says her father C Krishna, a labourer, struggled to send her to school. “He wept for joy when I told him I had made it to engineering college. No girl in my tribe has studied beyond class V. Boys drop out after X. But I insisted I want to study and my father struggled hard to pay school fees and buy books,” she says. “I will be the first engineering graduate from my community. My brother is in second year Intermediate and sister is in VII. I did not get much time to prepare for JEE but I passed Eamcet. I am lucky to get admission to a top college like JNTU.’’

At a time when populations of forest-dwelling tribal communities are dwindling across the country, seven boys and girls from three primitive and vanishing tribes of Telangana created history this year by becoming the first from their communities to join engineering colleges – Pujari Adharsh, Pudari Srinivas, P Pavan Kalyan, M Pushpalatha from the PTG Manne community, and K Ramatha and A Parmeshwar from PTG Kolam, besides Kalyani from PTG Thoti. Counselling ended last fortnight. In another first, two boys from the Lambada community got admissions in IIT Varanasi and VNIT Nagpur.

Mancherial district collector R V Karnan, Adilabad DC Dr Jyothi Buddha Prakash, and in-charge Anura Jayanthi were given Telangana Excellence Awards on Independence Day for the project Star-30. Less than 2,000 people each of the three PTG groups live in Telangana. Most of them live in tribal hamlets on the periphery of forests in Adilabad and Karimnagar districts. Literacy levels are very low and most of them work as farm labour.

Last Tuesday, Adharsh joined JNTU at Karimnagar, opting for information technology. He ranked 2594th in JEE in the ST category. Hailing from Ippalaguda, a tribal settlement in Kouthala mandal of the newly created Komaram Bheem Asifabad district, Adharsh made it through extreme poverty. His father P Buchaiah, who used to work as a farm labourer, was paralysed three years ago and remains bedridden now while his mother Sharada now works for daily wages.
