Both house of Parliament concerned about corruption at NIPER

Hon'ble MP SHRI UDAY SINGH asked two question; Q No 931 and Q No 1126 in Lok Sabha (16 Aug 2012) regarding mismanagement of funds at National Institute of Pharmaceutical Education & Research (NIPER). He asked about details of sanctioned/ disbursed project-wise along with the project objectives to  by Department of Pharmaceuticals and various Government organizations viz-a-viz private organizations during each of the last three years and the current year. He also asked whether the Government made periodical assessment, project-wise regarding continuity of the viability of these projects? 

DR. JANARDHAN WAGHMARE asked the same question Q No 817 in Rajya Sabha (17 Aug 2012).

Neither ministry nor NIPER could answer to question raised in Lok Sabha or Rajya sabha. All the babus could do is follow the evasive maneuver, by answering "Information is being collected and would be laid on the Table of the House". 

Why the answers could not be table as asked? 

Because of blatant violation of rules and rampent corruption. Money siphoned out not only from the grant from Department of Pharmaceuticals but also from extramural funding from DBT, DST and Private funding agencies. 

Documents obtained through RTI speaks the truth. 

Though "GANG OF नईपार"  keeps saying "Abuse of RTI by Team Roy"

199.29 lakhs + NIPER +"GANG OF नईपार " = Non functional Swimming pool: Summer months, delayed monsoon, power cut but no respite for students and residents of NIPER Mohali campus. State of the Art Olympic size swimming pool is still non functional 17th months after completion and 17 lakhs cost over run. Government supported well by giving 182 lakhs budgeted expenditure and also put the bill of 17 lakhs over and above budgeted expenditure.   

225 lakhs + NIPER +"GANG OF नईपार " = Virtual IPR Department: In the beginning of 11th five year plan Planning commission through Department of Pharmaceuticals approved a plan project ‘Setting up a Department of Intellectual Property Rights at NIPER’ with an approved financial outlay of Rs.2.25 crores. However at the end of 11th five year plan no ‘Department of Intellectual Property Rights’ established at NIPER what happened to Rs.2.25 crores?

89 lakhs + NIPER +"GANG OF नईपार " = illegal extension??  In the financial year 2010-11 officiating director distributed money less then what is released for each of the following projects. Actual money released from ministry for planned schemes RS 10, 58 (8, 03+2, 55) lakhs and actual disbursement has a huge difference (at least 89 lakhs). 

181 lakhs + NIPER +"GANG OF नईपार " = Real furnitures for virtual buildingsIn the beginning of 11th five year plan Planning commission through Department of Pharmaceuticals approved Rs 400 lakhs for Furniture and air conditioning predominantly for 1500 seat capacity auditorium. During mid term review it was found that 181 lakhs were spend on purchasing Furniture and air conditioner without laying a single brick for auditorium. What happened to Rs.1.81 crores?

NIPER cheated it's own scientists; Tanasahi achieved new hight @NIPER: NIPER claimed arrear money from DST in the name of 10 scientist/SRF; did not pay all the people, used the money for some other unknown purpose (pocket?), submitted the utilization certificate indicating that the money is used for the purpose it was given by DST. Few deprived people failed to get their due from NIPER now thinking on going through legal route to retrieve their money.

TEM + NIPER +"GANG OF नईपार " = 1 crore unaccounted money: The Department of Science and Technology, Ministry of Science and Technology, Govt. of India sanctioned first installment of 250.00 lakh as financial assistance to the project “Facility for Toxicity Screening on nano Particle used for Drug ……Its mechanism of action” for purchase of Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM). Quotation for the same was much higher.

302 lakhs + NIPER +"GANG OF नईपार " = Impurity and stability of trading: Ex-Dean, Indulged in unauthorized Brokerage/ Commission Sale while holding the positions in the year 2009-10. Utilizing 11th five year plan money, he procured chemicals (two impurity standards) from a local manufacturer, M/S Ind Swift Labs, Panchkula for Rs. 9.00 lacs ( Rs. nine lacs).  He sold these two impurities to the United States Pharmacopeia for Rs. 20.8 lacs (Rs. twenty lacs eighty thousand), thus carrying a profit of 13.5 lacs on the sale. He has submitted a claim under the disguise of consultancy services of NIPER a share of the profit under advisory as well as research consultancy
