UP Medical College Shut, Parents Clueless



Taking government decision not seriously, proved to be very costly for Prasad Institute of Medical Sciences in UP. CBI raided the said institute to find out its wrong doings in admitting new MBBS students; though the medical institute had been disallowed from doing so. This led to zero presence in the campus the next day.


Prasad Institute of Medical Sciences is run by Prasad Educational Trust which has academic as well as administrative sections in a building and a hospital next to it on Banthra area on Kanpur Road, 30 kms. from Lucknow city. None of the 61students nor the faculty were present and the classrooms were locked in which the MBBS course had begun the previous year. Only a known face, the Principal Dr. Shoukat Nijamsaheb Kazi, administrative authority was to be seen.


The next to be seen in the administrative building were the helpless guardians of the students. They had rushed to the institute to withdraw the amount they had deposited for the admission of their wards for the 2017-18 academic session. They said that came to know about the institute through a broker so we came here to further know about it. But when we came here, we were informed that it had been blacklisted with an assurance that the institute would soon get all the necessary permissions.

They said that they were asked to deposit some money in cash and cheque in advance which they did by collectively giving Rs. 23 lakh —- Rs. 18 lakh in cash and Rs. 5 lakh in cheque but did not reveal the name of the broker. They were asked to assemble in a room of the institute building for handing the amount and while doing so their mobiles were not let in, neither were they given any receipt for the amount.

The scared guardians, when requested the authorities for the refund of the deposited amount, were assured that their money would be transferred into their account the next day.

When contacted the principal told The Indian Express that, “Out of the four members of the MCI team which had inspected the institute, one of them had disagreed due to which the certificate was not awarded to us. In the meanwhile there was a second inspection, even before the result of the first inspection was declared”. He said the first batch of 61 students of the college which was given admission the last year was waiting for examinations.


In the meantime the CBI was successful in arresting the six accused related to this matter- retired Orissa High Court Judge I M Quddusi, and owners of the institute B P Yadav and Palash Yadav.
