No scam in admissions in Anna University: Officials

CHENNAI: Tamil Nadu Higher Education Secretary Sunil Paliwal and Anna University Vice Chancellor M K Surappa has rejected allegations of a scam in admission of engineering students to the varsity’s constituent colleges.nnAddressing a joint press conference, they referred to reports in a section of media about admission of more than 60 students, whose names were not mentioned in the final admission list, in 2017-18 academic year.nnPaliwal said there was no such discrepancies as alleged in the reports.nn”…It is not a right allegation. Once you put together Tamil Nadu Engineering Admissions – that is from our single-window counselling, NRI, industrial quota and people taken from other states. Then the figures will tally,”he said.nnSurappa said the media reports only mention the TNEA figures and did not consider admissions made under the NRI, industrial and other quotas.nnThe alleged scam in the admissions has surfaced close on the heels of ‘cash-for-marks’ racket in the premier technical university.nnPolice had on August 2 booked 10 professors, including former controller of examinations G V Uma, for allegedly “receiving money” from some engineering students and giving them extra marks during re-evaluation.nnUma had been suspended subsequently and a committee formed by the university to look into the issue.nnSource: Press Trust of India
