IIT-Kharagpur director made accused in AICTE scam !!!!!!!!!!!!!

NEW DELHI: CBI has made Damodar Acharya, director of IIT, Kharagpur, as an accused in the scam involving the All India Council for Technical Education. Acharya was the chairperson of AICTE when approval to many existing technical institutions was granted.
In its latest report to HRD ministry, CBI has also recommended regular departmental action for major penalty for the lapses committed by Acharya. An employee can be dismissed under the regular departmental action, sources said. It remains to be seen what action HRD ministry takes against Acharya. So far the ministry has been going as per CBI recommendation and has taken action against many AICTE officials.

Acharya's involvement relates to the extension given to Padmavathy College of Engineering (PCE) for 2006-07. CBI said AICTE had appointed a three-member appraisal committee to assess PCE. The assessment was based on the information furnished by the institute as well as the visit by the committee. Considering faculty shortage in the institute, the appraisal committee had reduced the intake from 180 to 90 seats. Acharya, CBI said, "did not consider the recommendations of the appraisal committee and took a decision to maintain status quo". Accordingly, the institute was given extension of approval.
