“Irregularities and Corruption in Private Pharmacy, Medical and Engineering Colleges in ‘Bangaru Telangana’” ―Professor M.S.Rao










"Make the iron hot by striking it." ― Oliver Cromwell


TRS government in Telangana has taken some initiatives to set irregularities and corruption in the private pharmacy, medical and engineering colleges in the new state to create ‘Bangaru Telangana’ (Golden Telangana). However, there are some colleges that still don’t comply with the guidelines of their affiliated universities like JNTU Hyderabad and Osmania University.

There is a lot of corruption and irregularities in the private colleges presently. It is the responsibility of regulating authorities like All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) and the affiliated universities for these colleges to look into these irregularities to check corruption. The owners of these private colleges don’t pay salaries on time, and they cheat the leaving employees by not paying their salaries for months. They are notorious in filing wrong cases against the leaving faculty and employees. They use the faculty during inspections and throw them after the inspections. Their main intention is to show to the regulating authorities that they complied with the guidelines. They don’t have the required faculty strength as per the stipulated guidelines. They show the names of same faculty who serve in other colleges. That means the same faculty serves in multiple colleges simultaneously. Some faculty offers their services like the cameos in films. It is an open secret known to everybody including the regulating authorities. The Hindu, in its article titled ‘Names of over 50,000 teachers figure on rolls of more than one institution’ outlined the irregularities URL: http://www.thehindu.com/news/national/faculty-names-fraud-across-engineering-colleges-in-india/article7190827.ece. These owners show to regulating authorities that they pay salaries as per the AICTE guidelines and collect the differential amount from the faculty through withdrawal forms before paying monthly salaries. Any common man with common sense can understand this open corruption and irregularities if they check the bank statements of the employees from these colleges. In some cases, the faculty ends up paying more tax to income tax authorities since they are shown with higher salaries on records. How can we expect excellence in Indian education when irregularities occur in this manner?  The world will laugh at our irregularities and corruption in private colleges.  Some of the owners have connection with local criminals and mafia, and they browbeat the leaving faculty with dire consequences. They also threaten filing wrong cases against the leaving employees to avoid complications for them. It is unfortunate that these irregularities are happening in ‘Golden Telangana’. Hence, the chief minister of Telangana State, Mr. K. Chandrasekhar Rao must take a serious note of these things and order probe in erring colleges to create healthy education system.

It is unfortunate to bring it to the notice that the top officials of these affiliated universities take bribes or accept gifts from these owners of private colleges. They are also invited for ‘guest lectures’ and ‘graduation day’ ceremonies and they get handsome honorarium from these erring private colleges. In this way, a lot of ‘give and take’ takes place between the owners of these private colleges and the officials of their affiliated universities. It is time that the social media, print media, nonprofits, government officials, intellectuals and thought leaders check corruption and irregularities in these private colleges to create ‘Bangaru Telangana’.  


Steps to Create Healthy Educational Institutions

Students suffer a lot due to dearth of infrastructure. Faculty suffers due to non-receipt of salaries on time from these private colleges. Parents are caught between the devil and the deep sea. They are not ready to fight against these erring colleges as it might adversely affect the scores and grades of their children in these colleges. The faculty cannot fight as they have the fear of losing their jobs. Likewise, everybody has their own concerns. But somebody must take initiative to cleanse the Indian education system from corruption and irregularities. Here are some steps to create transparency in the private colleges:
  • Find out whether they have adequate faculty as per the norms and rules. Ensure that they maintain adequate faculty-student ratio.
  • Organize sudden inspections to find out whether the faculty is really working or are these colleges showing fake list of faculty. Check their attendance records and biometric systems to cross verify the attendance. Only then the colleges must get permission to start courses. In this way, we will be able to have the colleges that have financial and ethical stamina to conduct courses and run their institutions to provide quality education to students and offer intellectual ambience for faculty.

Those educational institutions that are found to be unethical and corrupt must be derecognized. It gives a stern warning to other corrupt colleges. In this way, other colleges will follow the proper system and it ultimately helps students acquire quality education.

Remember, the day corruption enters into Indian armed forces and educational institutions, the country will collapse. Hence, all patriotic citizens and nonprofit organizations must come forward to cleanse Indian education system and colleges from corruption. Jai Hind!

“Ramon Magsaysay Award (Asia’s Nobel Prize) for Indians” ―Professor M.S.Rao









"The growth and development of people is the highest calling of leadership." — Harvey S. Firestone


Ramon Magsaysay Award is  the Asia's highest honour given to Asians in six categories.  Established in 1957,  it is considered the Nobel Prize of Asia.  It is named after the third president of the Republic of the Philippines. In the same year (1957) Philippines lost Ramon Magsaysay in a plane crash on March 17.  The first Ramon Magsaysay Awards were given on August 31, 1958. The first awards were given to five outstanding individuals working in India, Indonesia, Philippines, Republic of China (Taiwan) and Sri Lanka, and a Philippine-based organization.

The Ramon Magsaysay Award Foundation gives the prize to Asian individuals achieving excellence in their respective fields.

“Private Pharmacy, Medical and Engineering Colleges in the Telangana State are Run by Crooks, Mafia, Money Launderers and Politicians” ―Professor M.S.Rao











“The world will not be destroyed by those who do evil, but by those who watch them without doing anything”― Albert Einstein


Some of the private pharmacy, medical and engineering colleges in the state of Telangana are run by crooks, mafia, money launderers and politicians. They open “private” educational institutions to extract money from parents and students. They focus on branding and marketing rather than on innovation or creativity to provide excellence in education. As the general public and parents don’t understand the hidden motives of these crooks, they respect these private educational institutions due to the sanctity attached to education in India.

Most owners of these private colleges are rogues and crooks who suck blood from students like leeches and don’t pay salaries to their faculty and employees on time. But they claim fee imbursement from government. They demonstrate crocodile tears for not receiving fee imbursement from government on time. They create fake accounts in the name of students to claim more fee reimbursement money from government. They show more salaries to faculty members on records but pay less in reality. They cheat the regulating bodies like All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) and their affiliated universities, government of Telangana and the income tax department. They cheat their employees who are intellectuals by showing more salary on their records but pay less.  Worse, they collect more tax from employees as mentioned on the records. Some of the employees end up paying more tax to income tax department from their pockets than what they are supposed to pay. Any income tax official can easily identify these irregularities as the managements of these private colleges collect differential payments by taking the signatures of their employees on the withdrawal forms before giving monthly salaries. That means when the salary is credited, the differential amount is immediately debited from their bank accounts.  Even the bank officials are aware of these irregularities and corruption. It is the serving teaching and non-teaching employees who must fight against such corruption in colleges. But they don’t fight as they want to lose their employment on arbitrary grounds. The owners of these private colleges who are crooks use goons to settle their scores if employees raise their voice against such malpractices and corruption. Hence, intellectuals and employees are not ready to fight against these crooks and rogues in these private colleges.

It is open secret that the names of faculty members appear in multiple educational institutions in the state of Telangana.  Hence, Central Bureau of Instigation must intervene to check corruption and irregularities in these private educational institutions in the state of Telangana. Most private colleges don’t pay the salaries to their leaving employees. It puts the leaving employees on financial hardships. They don’t give service certificate, salary certificate and last pay drawn certificate which will prevent the leaving faculty members from joining employment elsewhere. These crooks and rogues level fictitious cases against the leaving employees to avoid paying salaries for three months. The crooks and rogues of these private pharmacy, medial and engineering are confident of getting out of any cases and complaints as they have close nexus with all the officials in their affiliated universities, regulating bodies and politicians. In fact, they pay huge donations to political parties during elections to keep them in good humor.  Ultimately it is the intellectuals and employees in these colleges who suffer.

A.P.J. Abdul Kalam rightly remarked, “If a country is to be corruption free and become a nation of beautiful minds, I strongly feel there are three key societal members who can make a difference. They are the father, the mother and the teacher.”  Hence, let us strive hard to free these private colleges from corruption to build a healthy education system where students get quality education and faculty enjoys intellectual ambience with dignity and honor.  Jai Hind!

Note: I wrote this article to bring corruption in private colleges. I pioneer the rights of a common man. Let us all intellectuals join this movement to create a better education system to build a strong India.
