20 years later, case filed for recruiting 4 on fake papers; Is the law ignored in this matter?
The Ambala police have registered a case against the District Education Officer and a retired government school principal in connection with a 20-year-old case of fraudulent recruitment of four Class IV employees.
As per information, the recruitments were made from 1994 to 1998 at Government Girls Senior Secondary School, Police Lines, Ambala City.
The retired principal and the present District Education Officer, who was then a senior lecturer in the school, were members of the recruitment committee. The age certificates of all four employees and caste certificate of one of them were found to be fake.
The advocate for the complainant in the case said, “The then principal had misused her powers to adjust them. The case was registered on the directions of the court. The complainant in the case, Paramjit Sharma, joined the school as principal in March 1999. He observed the irregularities and took action against them. In 2000, a writ was filled in the Punjab and Haryana High Court against the selection of an ineligible candidate and the appointment was quashed.”
“In 2002, the matter was raised before the then CM and in 2004, a writ was filed by the complainant in the High Court. Despite directions from the court, no action was taken and contempt was filed in 2015.
“In 2016, a letter was sent by the Education Department to the police to register a case in this matter but to no avail. Then, the complainant approached the district court. A few days ago, the court summoned the SHO and ordered the registration of a case,” he said.
The advocate said, “Finally, a case has been registered against DEO Uma Sharma and retired principal Prem Behl.”
Paramjit Sharma said, “I have been harassed over these years for discharging my duties as principal. I have spent all my energy and money in this case.”
The case has been registered under Section 406, 420, 409, 466, 467, 471 and 120-B of the IPC.
Baldev Nagar police station SHO Rajnish Yadav said, “A case has been registered and the matter is being investigated.”
College principals told to ensure shifting of students; Whether the students are having problems with the new conditions?
Higher Edu Dept Directive creates flutter among students, lecturers
Candidates who have taken admission in the under-graduate (UG) courses in government colleges in this academic session will have to change either their subject/stream or college if the student strength is less than 20 in the subject/stream.
The Department of Higher Education has directed principals of all government colleges in the state to ensure the shifting of such students to nearby college or change his/her subject/stream according to his/her choice. The condition will be applicable to old colleges, while a minimum strength of 10 students for a subject/stream have been placed for the newly established colleges, say sources.
A communiqué in this regard has been sent to the principals from the office of the Director-General (Higher Education) whereby the principals have also been asked to complete the process of merger and rationalisation within two days by complying with the directives in letter and spirit, the sources maintain.
The directives have not only created a flutter among students and teaching faculty but also caused fear among extension (guest) lecturers of being displaced as the move will also adversely affect the workload, the sources add.
Executing the directives, Government College, Nahar, has asked its all 10 students of B Com (Ist year) either to change their stream or to shift the nearby college.
“The notice has left all of us high and dry. I do not want to change my stream, hence will have to go to either Kosli which is 7 km away or Kanwali village that is 17 km from Nahar,” said a BCom student, adding that it would further add to his woes in case these colleges would also be facing same problem of student strength of less than 20.
Similar is the situation in Government College at Badli village in Jhajjar district where the student strength of commerce stream is less than 20. “We have asked commerce students to adopt one of two options, either to change stream or college,” said SN Sharma, Principal of the college.
Another principal said the opening of several new colleges was the main reason behind the decreasing number of students in old colleges as they now prefer to get admission in their nearest college. “Definitely, the move has brought misery to those students who have opted for subject/stream having strength of less than 20,” he added.
Ishwar Singh, president, Haryana Extension Lecturers Welfare Association, says the new directives have left many extension lecturers displaced due to considerable drop in the workload, hence the government should also ensure their adjustment.
