Candidates, who want to enroll in IDE courses used to pay admission and tuition fee through challans at the Indian Bank branch in the university campus. Chennai: Bringing yet another scam to the light, the Institute of Distance Education IDE in University of Madras has uncovered a major scam in which candidates and crooks joined hands to cheat the University by manipulating challans.
The racket, which operated for many years, came to light when IDE officials conducted financial reconciliation with bank accounts and IDE records.
So far, IDE has recovered around Rs 2. Soon after the exam sam at IDE reported by Deccan Chronicle, the details of the challan scam has emerged. As per the instructions the student will leave the some space in the beginning and fill the challans with one digit less. But the students will fill only Rs and pay the amount at the bank counter. After that, they would give the challan at a particular counter. The agent or the staff then will add another digit in the chalan.
Students who just paid half the amount will get study materials and admission slip like the rest of the candidates. The difference shown in the account was so huge that IDE immediately stopped issuing certificates to candidates and has put in place a new mechanism.
IDE has recovered only Rs 2. The current students can get their certificates only after paying their dues. Learning from the experience, the university has introduced computerized challans and even introduced online payment system.
When enquired about the challan manipulation, S. Duraisamy, Vice-Chancellor, University of Madras, said that no manipulation took place after he took charge. How they cheated the university? As per the instructions from the agents, students will leave the some space in the beginning and fill the challans with one digit less.
For example, the course fee for MBA is Rs 8, But the students would fill only Rs and pay the amount at the bank counter.
