Institutes booked for fraud in Jammu and Kashmir


A communication from the Chairman, J&K Board of School Education, Srinagar, addressed to IGP Crime Branch, J&K along with an enquiry report of Secretary BOSE, Srinagar, was received in Crime Branch, Jammu, he said.

The report revealed that elementary teachers training course conducted by the institutes involved a huge scandal where money to the tune of hundreds of crores had exchanged hands as bribe, he said.

Giving details of the report, he said, the ETT institutions did not fulfil even the basic norms and standards laid down by the National Council for Teachers Education, but were allowed to run the courses without issuance of NOC from the state government, which is granted after conducting periodic inspections of institutions.

The institutions lured candidates and took Rs 45,000 to Rs 80,000 from them through touts to provide degrees and certificates. But they neither registered the candidates in time nor conducted classes or provided hostel facilities to them, he said.

By abusing their official positions, the accused J&K BOSE officials had fraudulently granted affiliation to these institutions in gross violation of the norms, the spokesman said.
