Huge sums of money are being collected from students of the Guru Nanak Dev Engineering College and the alumni are seeking transparency in spending.
Despite charging the students for various facilities, the quality and availability of the same are very poor. Further this has raised questions of corruption and financial mismanagement by the authorities.
A few examaples to illustrate this are :
-- In the last 5 years Rs. 76 lakhs accrued via Alumni funds but not given to the Alumni Association
-- In the last 5 yeras Rs. 15 lakhs collected for the Magazine fund but the magazines are not published regularly.
-- In the last 2 years Rs. 14 lakhs collected as transportation fund but only Rs. 1.36 lakhs spent
-- In the last 3 years Rs. 12 lakhs was collected as parking fee but the parking spaces are not maintained properly.There is no one deployed for security of vehicles.Prominently writen "Parking at own RisK"
-- Every year Rs. 2 lakhs is collected as drawing board maintenance charge but no drawing board maintained or purchased in GNE for decades
-- Every year Rs. 20 lakhs is collected towards computers and internet but the availability of computers and the quality of the interent is very poor.
- Every yesr Rs 600 collected in name of smart Cards but cards can not be used any where as no card readers Installed.
We want the college administration to call for a open in house debate and answer these concerns.
