NEW DELHI: Dr APJ Abdul Kalam Technical University (AKTU), Lucknow has warned students against fake pages, individuals and organizations posing as the university and asking for money in lieu of helping students in financial work.
“All the students are requested not to give any kind of money to any person in lieu of getting any work done in AKTU. The declared fee prescribed by the university is deposited only at the university counter / student ERP login / official website of the university,” AKTU tweeted.
समस्त छात्रों से आग्रह है कि वे एकेटीयू में किसी कार्य को कराने की एवज मेंं किसी भी व्यक्ति को किसी प्रकार का धन न दें। विश्वविद्यालय द्वारा निर्धारित घोषित शुल्क केवल विश्वविद्यालय काउंटर पर/ छात्र ईआरपी लॉगिन/विश्वविद्यालय की ऑफिसियल वेबसाइट पर ही जमा होती है। pic.twitter.com/DW1EjdSXQJ— AKTU (@AKTU_Lucknow) June 6, 2022
“Apart from the declared charges, no amount can be taken by any person or organization in any way. Any such transaction is a fraud. Doing so is a punishable cognizable offense. Strict action will be taken against whoever is involved in such acts,” the university added.
In case of any such fraud, AKTU asked students to inform the school at the nearest police station at email@example.com and said that action will be taken.
In the screenshots shared by the University, a fake individual named Kaushik Akash said in a tweet, “If any student wants any help related to bank then contact here.” Another screenshot included a fake Facebook account named as “AKTU Dr APJ Abdul Kalam Technical University” which read “it is not official group. It is help all AKTU students purpose.”
