The recent income tax raids on some of the medical colleges in Karnataka have managed to exhume a fortune of money. These raids were done on major trust running medical colleges in the state which have unearthed an amount of Rs. 402.78 crore along with investments in foreign nations. This money was accepted as capitation fees by manipulating the online admission process and wasn’t disclosed to the Income Tax Department.
The search was done across 56 locations including Bangalore, Mangalore and Dharwad districts of Karnataka and has found evidence of malpractices for medical admissions to MBBS, BDS and post-graduate courses. The evidence was found in the form of notebooks, handwritten diaries, MS Excel sheets containing the details of cash received from students/brokers for admission in these colleges for various years. Central Board of direct Taxes (CBDT), which frames policy for the tax department said that cash amount of Rs 15.09 crore has been seized and gold jewellery worth Rs 30 crore (weighing 81 kg), 50 carat diamonds and 40 kg of silver articles have been found from the residential premises of the trustees. "Evidence of undisclosed foreign assets of Rs 2.39 crore in Ghana has also been found apart from evidence of huge investments in 35 luxury cars in unrecognized names," the CBDT said.
The tax department also mentioned that the transparent mode of selection through NEET UG and NEET PG exam to take admissions to MBBS courses and postgraduate courses have been overturned by trustees and employees with the support of agents/brokers and a few students who got high ranks in NEET exam. The high ranked students take admissions in colleges with no intention in joining them, thereby, blocking the seats which are then sold at high prices with the help of authorities, brokers, middlemen and converters. These colleges have also diverted the cash collected for non-charitable purposes by the Trustees which is clearly in violation of Sec 12AA of the Income-tax Act, 1961.
