Institute of Science and Technology (NIST – www.nist.edu ), Berhampur, Orissa
1) The Students and
faculties of NIST, Berhampur
The founding Father of NIST - Dr. Sukant K. Mohapatra**
3) State of Odisha – NRI investment
is not safe – Unlike Gujarat Government, where CM Narendra Modi personally
supervises and safeguard all NRI investments,
in Odisha, the bureaucratic corruption and inefficiency of Naveen Patnaik
Government have been hurting the
progress of state. A memo forwarded by prominent Non Resident Indians of Odisha
goes to trash .
This true case study also exposes the delay in Indian
judicial system, where by the time justice will be delivered, the Institution
would be shut down by AICTE, because of gross financial irregularities and
What happened ?
In the year 1995, a NRI Dr. Sukant
K. Mohapatra** (SKM) wants to establish a world class Engineering
Institute with a vision to further build a world class University in future,
near Berhampur, South Orissa. He invites his in-laws, who lived in close
proximity of the proposed location of the Institute, to be part of the SM
Charitable Educational Trust (SMCET), which would manage the Institute NIST.
He thought that, his in-laws, being local residents, would offer a helping hand
to achieve his dream and vision. He develops a world class curriculum for the
degree course and ships computers and books from USA, when computers were expensive in India during 90's.
The Institution would become one of the best among Odisha until a plot was orchestrated to siphon off NIST money as illegal loan and other personal purposes.
10 years later on 3rd
August 2005 , as founding trustee and chairman of NIST, he visits NIST to seek
an explanation for the alleged of misappropriation of funds by the local
trustees, none other than his own in-laws; he was terribly concerned by the downgrade
of NIST by AICTE – the premier supervisory and controlling authority of technical
education in India. The local trustees – Sangram Mudali (Brother-in-law of SKM), Surendra Mudali (Father-in-law of SKM) and Geetika Mudali (wife of Brother-in-law) were missing on the
meeting date and as evident
from this public document, Dr, SKM was physically prevented to enter the Institute
and abused and threatened by a NIST faculty Dr.
Ravi. P. Reddy .
Can any employee dare to stop, the Chairman and Founding trustee to
enter his own office without risking his job? There is only one possibility;
only when he has got the blessing of the 3 local trustees; if you can think of
any other possibilities, let us know.
For Dr. Sukant K. Mohapatra, the founder, the nightmare has just begun
on 3rd August 2005. He
never thought that, the very people he trusted most to manage his dream Institution
of excellence, would one day back stab him and try to fraudulently oust him (the
founding father of NIST) from the SM Charitable Educational Trust, with a fictitious
And who replaced Dr. Sukant K.
Mohapatra, after he was fraudulently ousted? ; His own mother-in-law Janaki

To be continued next week.....
Next week some of the following would be answered…. Don’t miss
More about the local trustees and their new
projects. Where the NIST money was siphoned off ?
Possible reason for greed – an exclusive analysis
by HindToday.com - Indian Greed from the available public domain
documents. When the plot to oust the founder was orchestrated ? Was it an
afterthought or pre-planned ?
Greed redistributed ? – How and why the Government
and Income tax department have been sleeping, even after serious income tax fraud has been detected at NIST, Berhampur year after year ?
Why Mudalis, who have been running the NIST affairs,
are running away from disclosures under Right to Information Act ?
How Mudalis are not cooperating in auditing the
financial records and the Government appears to be helpless?
The free fall of Sanatana Dharma value system
- Can a father back stab his son-in-law and sleep well ? Can a brother forget
his Rakhi obligations? How can a mother-in-law ever agree to replace her
son-in-law as a trustee ? What you would have done if you were Mudalis ?
What resemblance you find here to the Dwaapara Yuga
characters – Don’t worry if you can’t answer now? Wait until you read the
complete true story?
