Violates Rules And Trains Hockey Player’s from Outside PCMC area totally contrary to the agreement signed between PCMC and Vikram Pillay Academy
Illegally charges money from players even when Corporation pays him 2 lakhs per month
Pimpri: In June 2019 a 5 year MOU agreement was done between Pimpri-Chinchwad Municipal Corporation and Famous Olympian Vikram Pillay Academy about freely training the student’s from PCMC area only. And managing all affairs of Major Dhyanchand Hockey Stadium(Polygrass), Nehru Nagar, Pimpri.
According to the agreement, Vikram Pillay Academy was bound to prepare best hockey teams from PCMC area only, which were going to represent PCMC in district, state and national level hockey tournaments but he failed to do so even after more than year has passed.
The agreement also states that, the Academy is responsible to manage and bounded to arrange yearly a state and national level hockey competition which is also not done. While the corporation pays wholesum amount of 2 lakh rupees per month to Vikram Pillay.
Because of this carelessness of the academy, lakhs of rupees of public money is wasted of the corporation and also the time and hard work of the players and students from PCMC.
When all these things came into focus, the National Hockey player Mahesh Rasal stood by the side of the hockey players. By using Right to information act, shocking things came in lime light that Vikram Pillay Academy took Rs 500 per person who came to learn or practice hockey on Major Dhyanchand hockey Stadium (Polygrass).
The Stadium was allotted to the academy between 7 to 10 in the morning and 4 to 6 in the evening. Where he was supposed to give free training to the hockey players from pimpri-chinchwad city limits only with the adopted hockey players by PCMC. But he illegally and unauthorizedly trained hockey players outside of the PCMC area.
With this he earned ample money from private bookings of the stadium made by private academies, private schools etc.
And all these thing’s are revealed from the RTI. And he has kept many hidden things from RTI too. Regarding this
National Hockey player Mahesh Rasal has demanded to terminate the contract cum agreement between the Vikram Pillay Academy and PCMC. He also suggested the Municipal commissioner Shravan Hardikar to run the Stadium on its own.
And a letter to register FIR on Vikram Pillay Academy against this fraud actions has been forwarded to Pimpri Chinchwad Police Commissioner Sandeep Bishnoi too.
