Letter number 5686/PE0102007A0001 dated 28th September 2007 from CBI to Director, IIT Kharagpur referring to CBI Case No. PE0102007A0001 details how three professors of IIT Kharagpur colluded in a Rs. 28.7 Crore scam under the pretext of developing a software named COALNET for Coal India Ltd.

The Letter goes on to recommend major penalty against two of the professors and minor penalty against the third professor.

Still, no action whatsoever has been taken and the professors continue to enjoy privileges at IIT Kharagpur with one of them being promoted to the post of Dean.

      An educational institution of such a high reputation should be free of such acts. And it is sad to see that such institutes have become completely unaccountable. If the very founding base of the country's talent is being exposed to such irresponsible and corrupt authorities, how else can we expect the entire nation to progress!

      Though I know there are many scams in the Indian education and research sector. If an action is taken against the criminals in at least the cases where the crime is established, it will act as a deterrent to others.

      I knew the whimsical professors from my old friends at TCG Software!
