By AP EditorPublished October 02, 2018 07:51:00The civil engineering school in Delhi that built a Metro tunnel on the outskirts of the city has been banned by the government.
The decision has come under the scanner of the Union Home Ministry after complaints by some students.
The Civil Engineers’ College of India (CECI) in Gurgaon has been the recipient of many grants and scholarships from the Ministry of Home Affairs.
In a letter sent to the college, Home Minister Rajnath Singh said, “It is a clear violation of the law.
It is a gross violation of civil engineering standards.
The college was founded in the first week of March, 1971, and it was founded to teach civil engineering and engineering related subjects.”
The ministry added, “The college will be subject to suspension from all levels of government.”CECi’s head, Gaurav Singh, told The Indian Express, “I was shocked and saddened to hear of this.
We are not only a civil engineering institution, but also a political institution.
Our educational institution was founded by the British Empire.
We have been working with the Indian Government to improve the quality of education in India.”
The ministry did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
