Plaint against web portal for ‘misusing’ details of students


Patiala, June 24

A web portal has come under the scanner for allegedly using information and logos of government and government-aided institutions without consent and rerouting registration information of applicants to private institutes. Punjabi University and Multani Mal Modi College have now complained to the police and cyber crime cell requesting immediate action against the portal.

Officials at Punjabi University said they had come across a portal which was using their information and logo without consent and was offering registration to students for their courses. An official said, “The applicant’s information, collected in the name of Punjabi University on the portal, is shared with private universities but we don’t get any intimation regarding it. The applicant is then contacted by private universities in Mohali, Chandigarh and Delhi via email and phone to convince them to take admission there.”

Registrar Manjit Singh said, “We have submitted a complaint against the web portal with the SSP office in Patiala.” A similar complaint has been filed by Multani Mal Modi College as well.

DSP, cyber crime cell, Patiala, Charanjiv Lamba, said, “I have forwarded the complaint by the college to the officials concerned. They will initiate requisite action in this regard.” — TNS
