Coimbatore: Junior faculty members at Anna University Chennai confessed the existence of a racket which passed VVIP's wards with brilliant colors in spite of their irregularity and poor performance in class. The racket has been running in two of four campuses of the reputed university. One is the College of Engineering in Guindy (CEG) and the other is the Madras Institute of Technology (MIT) in Chromepet.
The academic malpractice is being done in the name of revaluation and has been carried out for past three years. This is for the first time when the misconduct is coming up with solid proofs. A few junior faculty members accepted that they allotted passing marks to some students on instructions of an official from University Examination Department. The official has not yet been punished, as per the reports.
An assistant professor from Department of Computer Technology at MIT confessed his wrong doing in a letter to Chief Minister's cell. Another assistant professor at Ramanujan Computing Centre in CEG addressed his letter to a semi-government organisation, which is already aware of the revaluation racket.
An MIT assistant professor named an official indulged in this ill doing and said, "gave me the papers and asked me to give pass mark for some of the papers. I have been given the subjects from their first semester and other semesters."
Surprisingly, in April, the assistant professor was handed over with such subjects' copies which are in no connection with his proficiency. He being a computer teacher was asked to correct Maths, Chemistry and Physics papers.
In the same line, a professor at CEG refused to do such a thing as it can bring a bad name to the university. In his letter he said, "In future, I cannot do this kind of mistakes where it affects the brand of my university."
In the month of March, a leading daily published about this scandalous activity which mentioned role of senior professors have been instrumental in this black deed.
