Media coverage of IITT Group, Manimajra Chandigarh, Chandigarh
College told to refund Rs 90,000In a significant decision in favour of students, the UT Consumer Dispute Redressal Forum-II has directed the Chairperson IITT College of Engineering, Eider House, NAC Mani Majra; Director (admission) IITT faculty house, Sector-21-C; Principal, IITT College of Engineering, Kala Amb, District Sirmour (HP), to refund Rs 90,000 (refundable security) to a student for deficiency in its services.
The forum has also directed the authorities to pay Rs 10,000 to the student for the mental and physical harassment caused to him and to refund the proportionate amount of tuition fee, amounts realised from him for books and instruments and for other charges with interest at 6 per cent per annum from the date they received the amount from the complainant till the date of payment to the complainant. The college authorities were further directed to pay Rs 1,000 as a cost of litigation.
The complainant, Aseem Manrai, a city resident, had filed the complaint against the Chairperson IITT College of Engineering, Eider House, NAC Mani Majra,\; Director (admission) IITT faculty house, Sector-21-C; Principal, IITT College of Engineering, Kala Amb, District Sirmour (HP); Pro-Vice Chancellor, Himachal Pradesh University, Shimla; Wg Cdr P. Prabhakar, ex-principal, Sector-12-A, Panchkula; and Director, Technical Education (Himachal Pradesh), Bhojpur Road, Sunder Nagar (HP).
As per the complaint, in response to an advertisement the complainant had purchased admission form-cum-brochure from office of the college situated in Sector-21. He submitted the form after reading arrangements and facilities available in the college at Kala Amb.
Giving details about the case, the complainant added that since college at Kala Amb was at a distance of more than 70 km from Chandigarh, he took admission in the college had the hostel facility.
The complainant further alleged that even during the counselling session held on August 20, 1998, he was assured by the authorities that the hostel facility would be made available by October/November, 1998, and that till then the complainant and other students would have to commute between Panchkula and Kala Amb by college bus.
After getting assurance from the college authorities about hostel facility and other facilities, the complainant deposited Rs 1, 62,240 as total fee with the college. The complainant also deposited Rs 10,000 with the management of the college as transportation charges.
Alleging deficiency in services of the college, the complainant said that when the academic session started, the bus used for Panchkula at 5 pm and reach there by 8 pm. In this manner, four hours were wasted daily in commuting the journey by the college bus. The complainant also alleged poor teaching services by the college authorities.
It was further alleged that authorities failed to take note of the complaint despite the repeated reminders. Finally, the complainant left the college on November 7, 1998.
College gives SC orders the go byThe IITT College of Engineering, Kala Amb, has once again opened a new chapter of controversy by allegedly violating the Supreme Court orders of May 9, 2003, according to which the college administration cannot retrenched the existing staff.
According to the Staff Union of the college, after taking over the administration of the college in May this year as per the orders of the apex court from the officers appointed by the state government, several allegations of violating the instructions of the court were levelled by employees and students of the college. So far, the college administration has issued orders for terminating the services of 10 employees of the college.
The Supreme Court orders of May 9, according to which the state government was ordered to hand over the college administration to the appellant, clearly reads on page 2: “Nothing should be done by the management to disturb the existing conditions of service of teaching and non-teaching staff to the detriment of such staff.”
The retrenched staff has requested the state government to come forward and intervene in the matter to save their “constitutional right to work”.
In the termination letters handed over to the staff members the college administration has declared the posts “redundant” and has written that “ your services are no longer required”. The staff union has termed it an open violation of the Supreme Court orders in a letter to the Chief Minister and the Director and joint Director, Technical Education, Sundernagar.
Mr B.R. Verma, Director, Technical Education, Sundernagar, said he had written five letters to the head of the college management Committee regarding the violation of the Supreme Court orders and to immediately reinstate the services of the college staff, but the committee had not answered any of his letters.
The 10 employees whose services have been terminated are Mr Heera Singh (Accounts Officer), Mr C.H. Chaudhary (purchase officer), Mr Mehash Jaitely (sports officer), Ms Shobha ( girls hostel warden), Mr Mukesh (technician), Mr Kula Nand Sharma (technician), Mr Ram Dyal (technical supervisor), Ms Santosh (pharmacist), Mr Rajinder Singh (peon) and Mr Yatesh Sen (peon).
Engineering students refused roll numbersThe future of the first year B.Tech, BE degree students of the IITT College of Engineering, Kala Amb, Sirmaur district is in doldrums. Himachal Pradesh University has refused to issue roll numbers to the students who have opted for IT and computer science subjects.
Mr Vijay Anand, father of a student here, told this correspondent that the admission councilling was conducted by the Directorate of Technical Education, Vocation and Industrial Training, Government of Himachal Pradesh, at Sunder Nagar last year.
He said the parents of these students had repeatedly confirmed from Mr D.N. Lakhanpal, Chairman, Admission Selection Committee-cum-Joint Director, Technical Education, Vocational and Industrial Training, about the recognition of the college for which their children were being sponsored. He further said the Chairman had issued letters and advised the students to join the IITT, Kala Amb. Meanwhile, the examinations have begun but the future of 80 students is in the lurch because of non-issuance of roll numbers.
It may be recalled that the IITT Engineering Institute, Kala Amb, has been affiliated to the AICTE but not recognised by Himachal Pradesh University, though the Himachal Pradesh Government had been conducting the entrance tests and sponsoring students to the institution.
Mr Anand said the parents of the students had already approached the Himachal High Court in this regard.
When this correspondent contacted the Principal of the college, on telephone, he said the matter was sub judice and he had been advised by the management of the institute to not issue any statement. He further said the issue was pending with Delhi High Court and the management was trying hard to get the issue settled. He said Colonel Bhatia, a member of the management, had already left for Delhi to take up the matter with the AICTE. Meanwhile, the parents and affected students have urged the Himachal Pradesh Government to intervene and settle the matter with the university.
IITT College courses not recognisedHimachal Pradesh University has made it clear that the four-year BE and B.Tech courses in information and technology of the IITT College of Engineering, Kala Amb, were not approved by it.
Referring to the admission notice inserted in various newspapers by the college for admission to 40 seats in these courses, an official release of the university pointed out that the institution had not sought extension of affiliation as required under the statutes. The university would not be responsible for any demages to the students seeking admission in the courses without extension of affiliation, it warned.
Forums directive to IITT CollegeThe local District Consumer Disputes Redressal Forum, comprising president S.S. Arora and members Atul Malhotra and Chander Kanta has directed IITT College of Engineering, Pojewal to refund the difference between the “payment seat” and “free seat” amounting to Rs 29,000 along with interest at the rate of 9 per cent from the date of deposit to the date of payment to complainants S.P. Singh and his son, Sukhdeep Singh Duggal, within eight weeks of the pronouncement of the order.
Sukhdeep Singh, on the basis of his performance in the CET examination was sponsored by the PTU, Jalandhar, to IITT College of Engineering, Pojewal, and after necessary counselling, his admission was changed from “payment seat” to “free seat” and instead of original discipline of electronics, he was allowed admission to chemical engineering. However, upon his admission to B.Tech (Agriculture) in the PAU, Ludhiana, he surrendered his seat in the engineering college and sought the refund of the security deposit and the admission fee. The forum did not agree with the contention of the complainants that they be allowed complete refund of the fee deposited by them on the plea that there was no deficiency on the part of the institution to impart education to the complainant, who in fact, left the college on his own. However, the forum, drawing analogy from a similar case of Sumit Lekhi, who was allowed the necessary refund to the extent of difference between the “payment seat” and “free seat”, asked the Registrar of the college to make the payment to the complainant.
3 courses at Kala Amb college lose affiliationThe executive council of Himachal Pradesh University, at a crucial meeting held yesterday, suspended the provisional affiliation granted to the IITT College of Engineering, Kala Amb, for the courses of computer science and engineering, electronics and communication engineering and electrical engineering from the 2001-2002 session and directed the college not to make fresh admissions to these courses.
According to Dr S.K. Gupta, Vice-Chancellor of HPU, the decision would not affect the students already admitted to these degree courses prior to the 2001-2002 session.
It was decided that teaching of English in bachelor of Arts would now be divided into three streams — communicative/functional English, English literature and honours courses in English. English literature will now be an optional paper. The council decided in principle to start LLB classes in Mandi. For this the case will be sent to the government and the Bar Council of India.
The university decided to start M.Com in HPU evening college, master’s degree in journalism and mass communication and bachelor’s degree in library and information science through ICDEOL, PG diploma in women development studies, PG diploma in e-commerce, polymer science and applied and analytical chemistry.
Besides this, the council has also approved rules and regulations for launching partnership or franchise programmes for courses like advanced PG diploma in web technology, advanced PG diploma in IT, advanced PG diploma in e-commerce, PGDCA and BCA.
The name of the HPU evening college, Shimla, has been changed to Himachal Pradesh University Centre for Evening Studies.
The council debarred Pushpa Raj, a BA III student, Government College, Mandi, from appearing for any university examination for a period of three years. Abhishekh Lakhanpal, who impersonated for him, was debarred for admission or appearing for any examination for a period of three years. It was further decided that criminal proceedings would be initiated by the superintendent or institutions concerned against those indulging in impersonation.
The council also approved three-year diploma courses in organisational psychology, environmental psychology and clinical psychology.
The council approved the promotion rules for the post of assistant librarian as also the earned leave and encashment of leave rules for teachers. The teachers’ vacation has been slashed from 96 days to 56 days.
The council approved the appointments in the department of chemistry and bio-sciences, both under direct recruitment and career advancement scheme.
Controversy over DFOs transferThe transfer of the DFO, Garhshankar, Mr Harbhajan Singh, has stirred up a controversy. The officer was allegedly got transferred recently as he pursued a case involving encroachments on the forest land.
The officer had issued a notice to the IITT College of Engineering, Pojewal, which falls in the Garhshankar forest range, over violation of the Forest Conservation Act, 1980. The officer had also written to the Punjab Technical University (PTU) authorities against allowing it admissions this year as infrastructure of the college had been built on the forest land illegally.
The Punjab and Haryana High Court had directed the Department of Forest to get the forest land encroached upon by the college management removed. The college authorities moved the Supreme Court against the High Court order. The Supreme Court referred the matter to the Central Empowered Committee. However, no relief was granted to the college management regarding the High Court order.
While the officer was pursuing the case in the Supreme Court, the Chief Conservator, Hills, Punjab, Mr Gujral, told the DFO to hold in abeyance the letters he had written to the Principal of the IITT College of Engineering and the Vice-Chancellor of the PTU following the High Court order. Thereafter, the DFO, who was the only IFS officer serving in the sensitive Kandi forest area, extending from Hoshiarpur to Gurdaspur, was transferred.
The transfer of the officer has evoked protest from the Deputy Commissioner, Nawashahar, Mr Krishan Kumar, who is known for his integrity and reforms in administration. Nawanshahr areas also form part of the Garhshankar forest range.
The Deputy Commissioner has written a letter to the Chief Secretary, Punjab, Mr K.R. Lakhanpal against the transfer of the DFO. He has stated that the IITT college authorities have encroached upon 197 kanals and 2 marlas of the forest land. When the DFO initiated proceeding against the college authorities, they moved the High Court seeking damages worth Rs 87.5 lakh from the DFO.
However, the court directed the authorities to remove the encroachments from the forest land in accordance with law. Mr Harbhajan Singh has been carrying out his duty sincerely and he has ensured protection of public interest. His transfer at this stage would discourage other officers and affect the interests of the state government, the deputy commissioner states in the letter.
In response to the letter, the Chief Secretary has written to the Secretary, Forest, to look into the matter and do the needful. However, no action has been taken in the matter so far, allegedly due to political interference.
Engg college flouting fee normsThe IITT College of Engineering of Kala Amb has been charging a sum of Rs 90,000 as refundable security from students in contravention of the norms set by the All-India Council of Technical Education (AICTE).
The council has written to the university that its regulation number GSR-476 (E) (6) lays down that no private institution is entitled to receive from the students any other payment, under whatever name, in addition to the fee fixed by the competent authorities for free and paid seats. Any institution, the letter says, which contravenes the provisions of the regulation, even after the directions of the university or the state government concerned can be disaffiliated.
The university had sought a clarification from the council on the matter after it received numerous complaints from parents of the students that the college was fleecing them. Some of the students were not paid back the security amount even after leaving the college. They are demanding an interest at the rate of 12 per cent on the sum. The management, the parents alleged, was charging exorbitant hostel fee and fleecing the students in the name of heating and medical charges.
They also complained of lack of requisite staff and infrastructural facilities at the college. An inspection committee of the university had found that the institution did not have proper laboratories and hostels and there was not even enough space on the premises for classrooms.
The university would not do much in the matter as the management moved court with the plea that the power to constitute inspection committee was not vested with the university or the government but the AICTE.
The university had shown undue haste in granting permission for opening the college and the extraordinary interest taken by the previous Vice-Chancellor, Dr C.L. Kundu, was evident from the fact that he headed the first inspection committee. This was surprising as the report of the committee is put up before the executive council of the university of which the Vice-Chancellor is the Chairman. It is alleged that the fee approved by the Fee Structure Committee was quite high. The committee fixed a fee of Rs 65,000 per annum on the pattern of a dental college, which was wrong as the fee in an engineering college is much lower. In some southern states the fee was as low as Rs 32,000.
Dr S.K. Gupta, Vice-Chancellor, said the university would take appropriate action on the basis of the letter of the council after studying the fee structure which was approved three years ago. He said the university had already taken several steps to safeguard the interest of the students. It had not allowed the management to charge building fund from the students and also turned down its proposal to start a bachelor of engineering course in information technology. As the college had issued advertisement for admission in the proposed course without any approval, the university had to insert a counter advertisement to inform people that B.Tech course being started by the college was not recognised by it.
Techies mesmerised by IAFAround 50 Students of the IITT College of Engineering, Pojewal, have visited the Air Force Station, Chandigarh, as a part of their training.
Having watched on TV the dare-devil acrobatics of the jaan-baaz pilots of Surya Kiran on Air Force Day, the students were a inspired lot, full of "josh" to get acquainted with the life, training and professionalism of this mighty force.
According to Mrs Rama Sinha, Chairperson of the IITT Society, the students attended a highly motivating and educative presentation on the Indian Air Force.
The students evinced great interest in flying activities, Air Traffic Control, inventory of IAF fighters, transport fleet, choppers and attack helicopters and the role of aeronautical, communication, computer and instrumentation engineers.
In the brainstorming session, the students shot many professional and technical queries, which were answered in a crisp and professional manner by the officers of the Indian Air Force. The AOC gave extremely valuable, educative and meaningful tips to the students. "Whenever, wherever you are, strive for Excellence," he advised the students.
A movie Akash Jodha depicting breath-stopping feats of the pilots was also presented.
SC reserves order on college affiliationExpressing concern over the fate of about 500 students of a private engineering college in Himachal Pradesh due to prolonged litigations in various courts for the past two years on the affiliation issue, the Supreme Court said that the matter needed to be resolved early in the interest of the students.
Reserving its judgement on a special leave petition by the IITT College of Engineering at Kala Amb in Sirmaur district, to which affiliation was withdrawn by Himachal Pradesh University (HPU), a Bench comprising Justice K.G. Balakrishnan and Justice P.V. Reddy said a “short order” on the matter would be pronounced by it soon.
The HPU had declined to grant permission to the students to sit in the examinations following a report by an expert committee of the All-India Council of Technical Education (AICTE) in October, last year, that the college authorities, which had charged about Rs 90,000 from each student as security amount, had failed to improve the required infrastructure.
The state government had expressed its inability to take over the college, which is presently managed by an administrator appointed by the Himachal Pradesh High Court.
AICTE counsel C.B.N. Babu and Himachal Pradesh’s Additional Advocate-General J.S. Attri submitted that after state’s Technical Education Department’s Joint Director S.S. Sen was appointed Principal of the college an amount of over Rs 1 crore had been refunded to the students, collected as security money.
Following the AICTE’s report, the students who were given admission in the IT course, had been shifted to some other engineering colleges, the apex court was informed.
No encroachment, says college managementThe management of IITT College of Engineering, Pojewal, Nawanshahr, has claimed that their institute is neither aware nor concerned with the reasons and circumstances leading to the transfer of a DFO. Besides this, the institute has not encroached upon even “an inch of forest or government land”.
Reacting to a news-item “Controversy over DFO’s transfer” carried in these columns on August 3, the management has also claimed that the college campus is located on privately-owned land falling in the revenue estate of Pojewal village.
In a communication to The Tribune, the management has added that the news-report has reproduced the contents of “some letter said to have been written by the Nawanshahr Deputy Commissioner” regarding encroachment upon forest land.
It is not aware of any letter written by the Deputy Commissioner to any authority, and a Special Leave Petition (SLP) arising out of the notices mentioned in the news-report is pending before the Supreme Court.
“The said statement, published ex-parte, is both abusive and defamatory”. Otherwise also, a false statement, not supported by the government’s own record, cannot be said to be true just because a government official has made it, the management has added.
The Tribune Correspondent adds: The college has already been declared illegal by the Punjab and Haryana High Court. The forest officials have also been directed to remove the encroachments by the college on the forest land in Pojewal village.
The college authorities have moved the Supreme Court but so far the institute has not been given any relief. The matter has been referred to an empowered committee constituted by the Apex Court for dealing with environmental matters.
PTU students hold protest rallyThe PTU Students Action Committee of the IITT College of Engineering, Pojewal, about 25 km from here, organised a rally in protest against the “apathetic attitude” of the PTU authorities towards their demands.
Expressing solidarity with the agitating students, Mr Kulwinder Singh Chahal, general secretary, Punjab Students Union, Mr Ravi Thakur, Mr Abhishek Kumar, Mr Puneet Gulati, Mr Sandip Singh, Mr Sharanjit Singh and others accused the PTU of “deceiving” the students by granting permission to “educational institutions which were like shops and did not even have the requisite infrastructure”.
While demanding the implementation of the 24-credit rule system, the students said the PTU authorities were making a mockery of the system by applying new rules on old students, which would ruin the career of hundreds of students.
The PTU Students Action Committee threatened to intensify the stir if the authorities did not relent.
