Code of Silence

Silence oF NIPER Board of Governors on corrupt practices of Officiating Director  surprises many, not only internal faculty but also external members of the scientific society. 

"BOG is extremely silent on formal complaints against corrupt Officiating Director, but quick to act on fictitious charges of Officiating Director against faculty members to victimized  whistle blower/complainant" 

Bog is so silent that  Dr. Neeraj Kumar had to get  a court order directing Dr V M Katoch to respond. If cases like this are left to the politicians to worry about, it does not speak well for Indian science. One can always worry the reason of silence; politics, economics or something else ???? 

Reason best known to NIPER Board of Governors

Not only NIPER faculty people out side are also surprized in BOG silence

We are trying our best to sensitize  Dr Katoch  but he is  silent and does not bother to respond even to the members of the BoG. We will continue to pursuade the BoG members to act.  I suggest that alll  EC members write to  Dr Katoch in this connection.Let us hope for common sense to prevail


You are most welcome to quote me that Katoch is dead silent . His two predecessors,  Ramasami and  Mashelkar were sympthetic  to our complaints regarding  Animesh  Roy but were very unhappy with  the manangement of NIPPER and mananged to get out of the mess. After a lot of our efforts ,   and trhe inquiry , Animesh was fuinally taken back after three years. I hope Nilanjan dies not face the same problem. Plesae  help a good cause.

All the whistle blowers are NIPER are in extreme pain and agony

The officiating director successfully destroyed my career by stopping active research, transferring student and instruments and stopping national and international funding.

Subject: Prayer to address in the forthcoming BOG meeting of 28th May, 2012, my formal complaint dated 18-7-2011 relating to misappropriation of 11th Five Year Plan Money


Kind Attention:
Dr. V.K.Katoch
Chairman, Board of Governors, NIPER

Dear Dr.Katoch,
I am addressing this email to you not only as a Facuty member of NIPER, but also as a responsible and deeply concerned citizen. Like Dr.Roy (email below) , I too am being victimized because of my complaint to you regarding corruption at NIPER.   

Even before the first meeting of the Board of Governors took place on 2nd August, 2011, I had made a formal complaint to you vide my letter dated 18th July, 2011 no. 392 regarding large scale misappropriation of 11th Five Year Plan Money by ex-Director of NIPER, Prof. P.Rama Rao and the present Officiating Director, Prof. K.K.Bhutani. Despite seriousness of the matter, the issue has not been discussed in the BOG till date and no inquiry set up to look into the charges by the BOG. 

In response to recent query in Rajya Sabha regarding action taken by Ministry relating to complaints on corruption at NIPER, the Hon'ble Minister has duly clarified on record that that the BOG is duly empowered to look into the matters of NIPER. Accordingly, I pray that my formal complaint made to you vide my letter dated 18-7-2011/392  relating to large scale misappropriation of 11th Five Year Plan Funds may be taken up in the forthcoming BOG meeting to be held at NIPER on 28th May, 2012. A copy of the complaint is being enclosed for necessary action as prayed.

To: bog

Final copy (Advance copy is already sent to Chairman, BOG NIPER through Speed post#EP176663532IN; Delivered on 24.05.2012)
(No forwarding note was given by Officiating Director even after reminding him through e.mail as per NIPER Statutes clause#20)


4.     It is also pertinent to mention that BOG is extremely silent of the corrupt practices adopted by Officiating Director and due to the silence of BOG, Officiating Director along with his coterie victimized to the whistle blower/complainant by putting fictitious charges and autocracious/illegal decision to the faculties. All this happened due to silence of BOG in such a manner that I have also to approach to Hon’Ble High through CWP#2211 of 2012 to get the direction so that BOG through Chairman should listen to us as per provisions given in the NIPER statute clause_3.2.1(j).     

5. We as faculty are frustrated due to corrupt practices (Academic/financial) adopted by Officiating Director which are duly reported/complained to Honorable BOG more specifically to Chairman, BOG along with ministry (DoP) and all are taking place in legal matter, news papers (Print/electronic), and also in parliament through unstared questions. BUT BOG NIPER IS SIALENT WHY?????
