Badlani was absconding and police had announced a reward of Rs 20,000 for any information leading to his arrest.

He is accused of collecting fees of upto Rs five lakh from more than fifty students for admission to medical and nursing courses at the institute, and discontinuing the classes later citing financial difficulties.

The college staff too wasn’t allegedly paid their salaries.

The students who had taken admission to the institute held a protest last month, following which police registered a case under IPC sections 420 (cheating) and 406 (criminal breach of trust) against him.

Badlani has a degree in dentistry and had worked in the US in the 1980s before returning to India, police said.

    Not only in the private medical colleges, even the government medical send the faculty members from different Medical college on the day MCI visit. Just by giving undertaking letters to increase the bed strength from 350 to 700 teaching beds they have taken admission of 100 seats over the years. When it comes to justice it should be measured by the same standard yard stick , whether it is Government or private medical colleges.

    Any batch admitted in a college having LOP will get recognition. For batches admitted after stop admission memo or violating standing order will not get recognition. Students should be aware about status of recognition. It is all in public domain of MCI web site.
    Closure of Medical Colleges are happening through out the country. It is the result of NEET based selection and centralised counseling- mandatory after Hon.Supreme court judgements. In some of the states the \’mop up\’ round is handed over to colleges and it is suspicious. Watchful eyes of students needed. It is heard some of the colleges still admit students under staff quota. Is it true?

    True…Many a times after lop is given to pvt medical colleges it becomes difficult to run the college due to unnecessary demands from MCI…Rising expenses on the hospital staff. Now govt has capped the fees and no more donations…Where is the money to pay salaries and run free bedded hospital going to come from. Many pvt medical colleges are in the same boat.

    If sections IPC 420 (Cheating) and 406 (Criminal breach of trust) are applied by the government honestly,I am afraid that many heads of private medical colleges in our country will be in trouble. Some time back, a private medical college in Kadapa faced similar allegations.The students were admitted into MBBS course and classes were conducted for full five years and at the end did not get MCI recognition.Now the students are running from pillar to post for help.I do not know what action was taken against that medical college management. But running a private medical college with less than required number of patients and and hiring private practitioners to act as medical teaching faculty during inspections and examinations is still going on in some places.

  5. Similar act is happening in Venkeshwara Institute of medical sciences, Gajraula UP. They are not paying salaries to doctors and one batch of MBBS is suffering.
