Open Corruption in Open university

This piece of news is really strange. Since when is government giving accommodation to contract employees?

And what a mis management, smae people who oversaw cosntruction of a residential complex worth crores are now refusing to move in???

The erratic Bhoj Open University administration is one again under the scanner for it’s the long practice of renting out a government rest house to its three employees, who are serving the university on contract basis. The total amount incurred by the university on the guesthouse is more than the collective monthly salary of these three employees.

Despite having built residential complex for the faculties and employees, the Bhoj University is still accommodating three of its employees in a rented guesthouse owned by the Irrigation department. Though these three employees are working on contract basis but they are being aided by their high profile connections with the state bureaucracy officials.

The university is incurring around Rs 30 thousand per month, however it's worth mention that the monthly salary of all the three occupants of the guesthouse amount to less than Rs 15 thousand.

Going one-step further, the university has gone for renovation work worth Rs 50 thousand in the guesthouse, even without the permission of the irrigation department. The latter has also expressed its displeasure over the recent move of the university. In the past, the university registrar and the finance officer have presented their objections, but to no avail.

The university has already got its complex constructed by spending few crores of rupees and the complex also has 45 residential blocks for the faculties and employees but till date only 10 employees have moved in. Several university staff members, including the Vice Chancellor and the Registrar, are still residing in rented houses.
