UP government to investigate ‘admission anomalies’ in Ayurvedic colleges | Tech US News


LUCKNOW The UP government has instituted a high-level inquiry into “fraudulent admissions” in Ayurveda and Unani colleges across the state through NEET-2021 and suspended at least six students who were admitted in violation of norms. Candidates who did not have total marks above the limit should also be accepted.

“It is unfortunate that the admissions were granted against the rules. A high-level inquiry will be conducted by senior officials while another inquiry will be conducted by an external/independent agency to verify admissions to Ayurveda and Unani colleges across UP in 2021,” said Dayashankar Mishra, Ayush Minister, Uttar Pradesh.

“During counseling, we will go to the root of every anomaly. The culprits will be punished,” said the minister.

So far, six students have been suspended from the Government Ayurveda College in Lucknow and the admission through NEET-2021 is being investigated for violation of rules. More than 500 students across UP will come under the scanner, officials said.

“We got a list of students from the Directorate of Ayurveda saying that these admissions were not as per the proper procedure. According to the instructions, we suspended six students – two female students and four male students – until further notice,” said Dr. PC Saxena, Principal of the Ayurveda College, who issued the suspension order.

According to officials, last year the NEET-2021 counseling for Ayurvedic colleges was conducted by an external agency which provided the data of students marks, cutoff and other details.

The final acceptance sheet was prepared by the agency. Based on this, the principal’s office issued the students with placement sheets for enrollment in various higher education institutions.

Ayurvedic colleges admitted about 500 candidates, including 12 government and 58 private colleges.

“We accepted candidates on the basis of distribution letters. Later, we also got their documents certified, including their high school and high school grades. Since the allotment letters were issued by the Directorate of Ayurveda, there was no point in cross-checking them,” stated Saxena.

“The internal committee will now look into the counseling and admission process and submit its report, after which responsibility will be fixed and action taken,” said a senior official in the Ayush department.
