The scam involved tweaking the selection process to the medical colleges through National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) examination. The persons involved in this scam were the trustees, key personnel running the medical colleges, agents/brokers and some students who topped the NEET exams.

The students who scored high ranks in the exam take part in the state counseling while they have no intention to join the said colleges as they have secured admissions or likely to get admission elsewhere, the statement read. Once they have bagged the seat, they withdraw from the admission process which leaves the seats available to the college management, it added.

I-T Dept unearths cash-for-seat scam in Karnataka medical colleges; over ₹400 crore black money detected

“Searches were conducted at 56 different locations across Karnataka and Kerala,” the CBDT, which frames policy for the tax department, said.

“So far, the evidence gathered indicates that ₹402.78 crore has been accepted as illegal capitation fee by manipulating the online admission process and the same has not been disclosed to the Income Tax Department,” it said.

It said cash amount of ₹15.09 crore has been seized and gold jewellery worth ₹30 crore (weighing 81 kg), 50 carat diamonds and 40 kg of silver articles have been found from the residential premises of the trustees and are prime facie, unexplained.

“Evidence of undisclosed foreign assets of ₹2.39 crore in Ghana has also been found apart from evidence of huge investments in 35 luxury cars in benami names,” the CBDT said.

Describing the alleged modus operandi, the CBDT said it was found that the transparent selection process to medical colleges through the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) has been “subverted” by trustees and key persons running these institutions in collusion with agents/brokers and some students who got high ranks in the NEET examination.

Management quota is normal, and is limited on certain conditions. Now even the student are pulled to game the system to result in increased quota. This will result in not-so-merit candidate gaining over merit candidate. Eventually, the quality of medical staff we see in future. Not just medical line, the same is applicable for other streams.
