Admission fraud at IIT's; Students admitted to IIT without taking JEE
Reportedly in academis year 2012-13 two candidates(1 boy and 1 girl) were offered seats in IITs without clearing entrance test IIT JEE 2012. They used digitally doctored admit cards of successful aspirants. Both of them have accepted their fraud.The boy took admission in IIT Bhubaneswar and girl joined ISM Dhanbad.
These days the Indian Institutes of Technology are quietly verifying identities of first year students across the 16 premier engineering schools.
What they did:
> Two IIT-JEE aspirants buy admit cards of two successful candidates
> They digitally doctor photos and based on ranks select seats during online counselling
> Go to respective campus and presented doctored card during physical verification.
The IITs caught the fraud students – when they physically came to their campuses after selecting seats through the online counseling.There was a mismatch between their digital thumb imprints and those of the candidates who cleared the JEE
The ISM Dhanbad girl challenged the IITs when they questioned her identity, and only accepted her fraud after the institutes filed an FIR against her and the police began their investigation.The girl withdrew her admission from ISM Dhanbad as a part of a deal agreed to by the IITs in exchange for the institutes withdrawing the FIR.
The IIT Bhubaneswar boy ran away from the campus with his bags after he was confronted about the fingerprint mismatch.
