Hyderabad: High Court directs NCC to pay compensation to students

Hyderabad: The City High court has criticized the Directorate of National Cadet Corps (NCC) for playing with its students’ career who were aspiring to get into professional courses through NCC quota.

The bench headed by Justice V Ramasubramanian and Justice J Uma Devi directed the NCC directorate to pat Rs 3 Lakh compensation to students who have could not secure MBBS seats despite having the qualifications to be selected under NCC quota on account of wrong priorities fixed by the Directorate, TOI reported.

The bench expressed it’s anger over the NCC directorate’s failure in giving justice to the aspiring candidates and said: “The malpractices in the sports quota came to the fore when the ACB officials raided the sports authorities. But the officials of NCC directorate fall under the purview of the central government and hence escaped from the clutches of the state police wing like ACB.”

The bench further noted: “The cases on hand demonstrate how the local NCC directorate has been manipulating the records, recognising and derecognising the certificates and playing havoc in the matter of according priorities.”
