JAMMU, Feb 10: Jammu and Kashmir state consumer disputes redressal commission has directed Shri Mata Vaishno Devi University (SMVDU) administration to pay Rs 4.50 lakh as compensation to the girl student for making bid to damage her carrier.
Commission has criticised the administration of SMVDU and accused it violating laws with impunity. Similarly, two laboratory assistants of the famed university have also filed complaint in the court accusing SMVDU administration of adopting callous attitude. It needs to be mentioned here today that university is run by the Mata Vaishno Devi Shrine Board of which the Governor NN Vohra is Chairman.
In the case adjudicated by commission, girl student Esha Sajgotra who was pursuing post graduation in philosophy was allegedly thrown out of the university campus to accommodate ward of an influential person. She lodged a complaint with the commission which on Thursday directed Shri Mata Vaishno Devi University (SMVDU) to immediately pay a sum of Rs.4.50 lakh to the aggrieved girl student who was expelled from the campus in an arbitrary and whimsical manner".
Commission consisting of Justice (Retd) G.D.Sharma and B.L.Saraf ordered that amount includes Rs.2.50 lakhs as special damages to Esha Sajgotra who was expelled in August 2009 while she was pursuing post-graduation in philosophy, sources informed.
Commission observed that Esha has undergone mental trauma, physical harassment and also loss of two precious years that cannot be exactly measured and compensated in terms of money". As such, the commission directed the university to reimburse Rs.4.50 lakhs to the girl within two months failing which an interest at the rate of 8 percent per annum shall have to be paid.
Two another cases have been filed by two employees of the university against the university. Suresh Sharma and Amit Sharma, Assistant Librarians, in their complaints have alleged that they submitted their resignations after they got jobs on higher perks in another institution. They further alleged that since they were working for the last four years in the university, they were entitled to get benefits of 6th pay commission and accordingly withdrew Rs 61000 in their favour as first installment.
But instead of accepting their resignations, university administration directed them to return arrears within one month. "For the last six months, we have been running from pillar to post to get NOC but to no avail," victims alleged.
