CBI registers FIR against IIT Goa Director Dr Barada Kanta Mishra for corruption

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) registered FIR against director Dr Barada Kanta Mishra of the recently established Indian Institute of Technology-Goa on Wednesday for allegedly possessing assets disproportionate to his known sources of income.
He was booked under the Prevention of Corruption Act for allegedly possessing disproportionate assets to the tune of Rs 1.14 crore.

In its FIR, the CBI said Dr Mishra’s assets movable and immovable amounted to Rs 3.39 lakh in 2006. However, by 2016, it had allegedly risen to over Rs 2.19 crore. This was inclusive of his bank savings, properties and car. It observed that while the institute director’s actual savings should have been in the whereabouts of Rs 1 crore, it rose to as much as Rs 2.15 crore – showing a discrepancy of Rs 1.14 crore.

Dr Barada Kanta Mishra has been accused of indulging in graft during his stint as the Institute of Minerals and Materials Technology (IMMT) director in Bhubaneswar between April 2006 and March 2017.  Dr Mishra was the chairman of the Recruitment and Assessment Board from May 2015 to May 2016. He graduated in metallurgical engineering from NIT Rourkela and obtained his PhD and post-doctoral degrees from the University of Utah. He has published over 200 journals, and holds claim over five US patents.
