IIT Kharagpur :: Exposure of Frauds, Irregularities :: A Few illustrative sample cases

Some shocking facts found on the internet (original link given at last):

1.     IIT Kharagpur (KGP) Director, Prof. D. Acharya is recommended major penalty, by CBI in AICTE scam. In spite of his own indictment, Prof. Acharya suspended whistleblower Prof. Kumar when this dormant matter became public. There are many instances of Prof. Acharya submitting ‘patently false’ information, malafidely & maliciously, in official documents.

2.   A CBI enquiry is pending in running of a fake Institute with alleged involvement of IIT KGP’s past/current directors (Prof. K.L. Chopra, Prof. S.K, Dube, Prof. D. Acharya), officiating registrar (Dr. T.K. Ghosal), then CVO (Prof. A.K. Ghosh) and current CVO (Prof. B.K. Mathur), and many senior professors, who are the alleged complicit.

3.      Irregularities and favoritism in the appointments of the Registrar, Dr T.K. Ghosal, by past and current directors (Prof. K.L. Chopra, Prof. S.K, Dube, Prof. D. Acharya). Director Prof. Acharya misled CVC by submitting a wrong report and got the matter closed. Dr T.K. Ghosal’s son was appointed as a Network Engineer (Group A post) by Director Acharya by ignoring many meritorious applicants.

4.     IIT Patna Director, Prof. A.K. Bhowmick, the then IIT KGP Dean, was recommended major penalty, by CBI, in Coal-Net Scam. It’s a mystery how Prof. Bhowmick got CVC clearance to be appointed as an IIT Director being indicted for a major penalty by CBI. CAG remarked that the implementation of the Coal-net remained unfruitful even after 7 years and spending Rs. 39.58 crore. Others indicted professors were awarded too.

5.      IIT KGP Dean, Prof. P.P. Chakrabarti, was recommended penalty by CBI in the same Coal-net Scam. Instead, Prof. Chakrabarti was promoted and is continuing as the Dean, SRIC for almost a decade. Prof. Chakrabarti is embroiled in mis-appropriating IPRs, in which the technology was allegedly transferred to Indian Railway in violation of the non-disclosure. Tens of millions of public fund is being spent in defending his individual legal suits in US court. No sanction was taken from Ext. Affair Ministry. Dean SRIC and Officials suppressed most details.

6.   IIT KGP Deputy Director, Prof. A.K. Mazumdar, Chairman Purchase Comm., in Laptop Scam, ignored hugely cheaper laptop (Rs 69 K) which matches best with the specifications. Instead, IIT approved laptop at exorbitant rates (Rs 107 K) of the same make, when laptop’s demand was in hundreds. Prof. Mazumdar siphoned millions for his spouse from his and his protege (computer science dept. Head & Prof. Jayanta Mukhopadyay)’s project funds.

7.      IIT KGP Dean, Prof. S.K. Som, with Chairmen JEE, falsely submitted that there were no admissions, in IIT KGP, without JEE’s merit list, though there were hundreds of such admissions done, including wards of the ex-Deputy Director Prof. M. Chakraborty (current IIT Bhubneshwar Director) and the then JEE Chairman, Prof. V.K. Tewari.

8.    IIT KGP Dean, Prof. P.K.J. Mohapatra’s alleged role in M.Tech. 2010 admission irregularities, in which admission details were suppressed by submitting patently false information that the admissions were not based onGATE score.

9.      IIT Faculty nexus with GATE coaching classescomputer science Prof. I. Sengupta was associated with a Kolkata GATE coaching while his spouse, Prof. D. Roychowdhury was a question paper setter of Computer Science GATE.

10.  Admissions of the wards of IIT KGP’s Administrators, including Directors, Deputy Director, Deans, Professor-In-Charges, GATE/JEE Chairmen, etc. is a routine affair in IIT KGP.

11.  A ward of IIT KGP’s past Director, Prof. S.K. Dube, was caught for impersonating in JEE.

12.  IIT KGP is a serial violator of RTI. Not a single out of 3 dozen applications, was ever dealt in accordance with RTI Act. None of the CIC orders was ever completely complied by the IIT.

13.  IIT Chairman, Mr. Shiv Nadar’s SSN College of Engineering was accredited by discarding Experts’ reports. It is not understood why Mr. Nadar’s College is not under CBI Scanner. It may be noted that the Director Acharya is indicted for a major penalty by CBI for an identical favor.

14.  No action on any of the CBI, CVC or CAG reports/complaints was ever taken by the IIT.  Call details of Kumar’s personal cell phone are being acquired by IIT.
