Are Seats for Poor Students Sold in JMI?

New Delhi.  Jamia Administration admitted students on seats reserved for EWS students on basis of fake certificates. When an RTI asked information about these admissions the students then were transferred to general category.

BeyondHeadlines, recently exposed how Jamia Vice Chancellor Najeeb Jung bowed to political recommendation and admitted a student in September, 2010 going beyond rules of admission set by the varsity itself. Now a reply to an RTI by Mohd. Vakeel further expose double standards of the university. These students were admitted on fake income certificates. When RTI questioned these admission they were transferred to general category. Interestingly the parents of the students were called to school and were asked to give undertaking that they are capable of paying fee of their wards.

More interesting is the fact that the admissions on seats reserved for EWS students were given on income certificates issued by private employers. The JMI did not bother to verify the documents. The chilling fact is that the JMI administration sold out the seats. (Otherwise how economically weak people get ready to pay when JMI ask them)

The tall claims made by Mr. Jung in The Sunday Guardian Story (Jamia VC accused of bending rules to admit student, 01 January 2012) fall short to the documents in possession of BeyondHeadlines. Well Mr. Najeeb Jung seems to possess a magic band, he can make anyone poor and rich by his mere orders. Also when talking to media he can make tall claims about humanity and catering to the weaker sections. Now only Mr. Jung can answer how much did he made by selling seats belonging to poor students.

RTI activist Mr. Vakeel says that the curious case of admissions does not end here. The students who scored well in entrance exam were not called for admission instead many students scoring lesser marks were not only called but were also allotted seats. The matter was challenged in court and JMI school was forced to admit some students on court orders.

Also in JMI many employees are outsourced from agencies and they are not considered as employees of JMI. But JMI school has given admission to child of one such employee under Jamia employee quota. Well this is another curious case of admissions in JMI. Only God knows how seats are allotted here.
