Manik Bhattacharya, former president of the West Bengal Board of Primary Education, collected the money taken for offline registration by sending people.
As Manik’s ‘close aide’, Tapas Mondal provided this information. A financial report about this offline registration was submitted by Tapas to the ED on Wednesday. Manik filed this complaint against the former president of the Education Board of Primary Education, effectively sealing his ED charges.
ED sources report that money has been routinely taken from students who want to take DLED training for the TET exam between 2018 and 2022. Most of the money was taken for offline admission to 600 colleges for DLED training. In the ED’s opinion, Manik used to arrange offline registration for students who could not register online on the deadline for online registration and were willing to undergo training. For this, Rs 5000 was taken per head. This method has been used to collect approximately 20 crore rupees, according to the ED.
Tapas, who is close to Manik, also said on Wednesday that offline registration was charged. Tapas’ Mahishbathan office handled that transaction. Nevertheless, he does not know where Manik’s money went.
