A Naga girl who paid Rs 40 lakhs for Post Graduate study was duped after she was refused admission to the institute as promised by an “agent”.
According to the FIR , the victim had applied for MDS (Ortho) course at ITS, CDSR, Ghaziabad through one Delhi-based agent identified as Rajan Verma. He claimed to be an agent of the institute and promised the girl admission under the management quota.
He asked and received Rs 27 lakhs as capitation/donation fees through one of his accomplices in Dimapur but no receipt was issued to the girl. He then went on to inform the girl to pay another Rs 13 lakhs as ‘admission fee’ through a bank cheque after assuring the amount would be refunded if she did not get admission.
When the girl went to New Delhi around February she was shocked to when the director of the institute Dr R P Chadha refused admission and instead directed her to the Career Post Graduate Institute of Dental Sciences and Hospital (CPGIDSH), Lucknow. When the victim inquired about her money, the cheque of Rs 13.14 lakhs was given back to her and told that the capitation fees has been transferred to Career Post Graduate Institute of Dental Sciences and Hospital, Lucknow. The victim also got it verified that the arrangements were made by Dr R P Chadha and Verma with chief founder trustee and president of CPGIDSH Azamat Ali.
Initially she agreed for admission to CPGIDSH as her money was deposited already deposited and paid another Rs.10 lakh as admission fees. However, she changed her mind after inspecting the CPGIDSH campus which had no proper facilities and hostel as promised.
When she demanded back her money, Verma assured her he would do so when the vacant seat was filled up. However they expressed reluctance to refund even after the vacant seat got filled up. It may be noted that recently the National Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission had given a ruling that any institute must refund the entire fees if a student opts out of a course before starting and the vacant seat gets filled up.
This incident confirms the huge amount of money going outside the state for admissions into various professional courses especially medical institutes. Manipur now has another medical college , apart from the present RIMS while Nagaland is struggling even to set up one.
