Chandigarh, July 16

Technical Education Minister Charanjit Singh Channi has marked a departmental inquiry into alleged embezzlement of funds and “unnecessary expenditure” for paying arrears to some staff members of Beant College of Engineering and Technology, Gurdaspur.

The minister has given directions to release salary for the last three months of around 200 college employees, who had accused the college management of diverting the funds.

Channi said, “I am aware of the issue. I have sought a report related to the matter.”

These are self-finance colleges and staff get salary from tuition fee fund. The college was not covered under the planned budget for technical education in the state since 2004 and has witnessed a dip in admissions in the last few years. — TNS
