More than 200 student’s future is in jeopardy as they realised that the college they were studying in, NETT Paramedical College was operating without any sanctions from the Pharmacy Council of India (PCI) and Maharashtra State Pharmacy Council (MSPC).

The institution, which was running D-Pharma and B-Pharma courses under section -12 of the Pharmacy Act, was declared fraud by the PCI.

The students came to know about this fraudulent incident last year when they were waiting for their exam results. The institute claimed that it was affiliated to OPJS, Churu University in Rajasthan, however when the students went there under the pretext of getting their result, the university rejected the claim.

“When we went to Churu we were presented with two forms- admission form and examination form. As a second year student it came as a surprise to us as to why we were made to fill the admission form. When we enquired, they told us that our admission was not done in the university. We were later even assaulted by the authorities when we said we didn’t want admission,” said Rinku Yadav, student leader.

The students are now demanding that all their fees, fine and donations collected by the college be returned to them along with ensuring that all the aggrieved students get admission in university who run a legal and legitimate course. They have also demanded Rs. 30,000 per month for the loss of two years of the students, immediate arrest of the suspects and a judicial enquiry by the state of Maharashtra.

NETT college refused to comment on the issue and said that they have presented the matter to the crime branch.

Yadav claimed that during the time of admission, the college was affiliated to PCI as was confirmed by the council and was also shown in Google as one of the top ten colleges. 

Others Support

Various student and law associations came forward to support the students. They blamed Dr T Ramani, Chairman of the college for signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with OPJS which has no legal standing
