Aviation school under cheating cloud

March 18, 2015

Kochi: Ernakulam central police have registered a cheating case against a city-based aviation academy for allegedly collecting huge amount as fees from students and failing to conduct classes.

The case was registered after students of AHR Aviation Academy on Chittoor Road lodged a complaint with the police on Monday, alleging that the academy had not conducted classes after charging excessive amounts as fees.

As per the complaint filed by nearly 30 first-year students, the academy reportedly collected a fee of Rs 2 lakh for the two-year course. They alleged that the institute was not conducting regular classes owing to the shortage of staff.

“During admissions, they promised us placements with top aviation companies for a monthly salary of Rs 2 lakh. But the academy does not even have enough staff to teach us!” said a student.

As per the complaint, the institute has collected Rs 1.50 lakh as fee for the one-year course and Rs 2 lakh for the two-year one. Girl students have complained that they were not provided proper food at the hostel even though they pay a monthly fee of Rs 3,500.

“The food provided at the hostel is insipid. Those who questioned this were given a scolding by the woman in charge of the hostel. Also, one of the staff threatened us with a knife. The hostel does not have a warden at night,” the students alleged.
