Central team at NIT for probe

The Union HRD ministry sent a four-member team to Adityapur-based National Institute of Technology (NIT) on Tuesday to probe alleged financial irregularities committed by the tech cradle.

Led by director of NITs, Union HRD ministry, Rajesh Singh, the team’s visit was prompted by a Jharkhand High Court order passed on the basis of a PIL filed by NIT Teachers’ Association.

According to sources, the central team held a meeting that lasted for more than six hours. However, NIT-Adityapur director Rambabu Kodali prevented the media from interacting with the visitors. “It is an internal matter,” he said.

The visitors also parried queries from the media.

President of NIT Teachers’ Association N.K. Agarwal, however, alleged largescale financial bungling. “Office furniture worth Rs 1.20 crore was purchased without a tender, Rs 47 lakh was paid to the drinking water and sanitation department for laying water pipelines on the campus, which is still pending, and Rs 5 lakh was given to an accounts staff instead of the maintainance department for repairing roads,” he said.
