With reference to your recent reports regarding one Dr. B.B. Goyal, who is/was a reader at University Business School (P.U.), we wish to add that we are also oe of the the victims at his hand. He got published a book through us in May-June 2006 by signing usual publishing agreement. He cheated us, by getting republish the same book in connivance with others, under print name of Reckon Prints, Panchkula/Kaizen Graphics, doing photostat business at UBS premises itself, in June 2006 and started selling it. Our ISBN (i.e unique International Standard Book Number) is fraudulently used on the book. These illegally produced books were supplied to University Business School and payments were taken by cheques by them. The books were given to the students and kept in the libraries.
No one can expect or ever think of such malafide intentions and illegal activities of a teacher of a reputed University. Every one is aware of that the frauds, illegal copy, piracy etc. are nonbailable, criminal offences under copyright Act and other provisions of Laws.
This shows the deteriorating level of a university teacher who along with his teaching business is earning money side by side by blocking the livelihood of others. Our only mistake was that we believed his manipulations/talks and published the book. We were subjected to huge financial losses, mental torture, harassments etc., We invested money and wasted our time in editing, correcting and publishing the book in anticipation of sale but at the time of sale, he along with others got printed/photocopied books and supplied these to the institution at which he is working. He has supplied books to other sources also. We are ordinary law abiding citizens earning our livelihood with hard-working. It is the duty of police to find out the whereabouts of a fake publisher (or his own creation namely Reckon Prints) whose name has been printed on books by forging our ISBN 81-8048-081-x HB; 81-8048-02-8 PB. on the illegally produced book under print line of Reckon Print. In the present day society, these law breaking people are so daring and habitual offenders; in spite of our numerous registered letters/notices, none of them bothered to reply or clarify. They kept on illegally photocopying/printing of books and continued selling. It may be perhaps of the fact previous enquiries are taking so long, and such people have no fear of laws.
This is the lowest downfall of a teacher and we in our more than 30 long years of work have never come across any such incident. We are surprised the people so irresponsible and arrogant, still promoted as a Reader, continue to teach at University level. When the Ranking agency will come to know the type of faculty at this place, we are sure their ranking will deteriorates. Few months back newspapers reports also revealed of manipulations in ranking by UBS and enquiries were conducted on account of it.
We reported to university authorities also with a view that such person should be terminated from services and be let freely to do business and face real competitiveness and vagrancies of business. Some time back newspaper also reported that inquiries were also being conducted against Mr. Goyal for Marks given in ‘Jai Shri Ram’ case. Who knows how many inquiries are being in progress. It is also strange that why no action is being taken against such person. Perhaps he and other such persons may be taking plea of cases being subjudice. Though it is universal fact that taking disciplinary action or action on financial irregularities by university authorities have relation to any other case pending in court of laws. Both are separate issues.
We have also took case at Police and filled recovery suit for our losses in Court of laws. On account of his manipulations the police enquiry did not yield any results as they could not establish obtain and provide details of Prop./Partners of Reckon Prints at a Panchkula address. It is strange that neither Mr. B.B. Goyal who has dealing with and knows Reckon Prints nor inform the police about that firm or persons managing it. The police made no efforts to find out or contact the persons doing business in name of Reckon Prints who has connivance with Mr. B.B. Goyal.
Now with our own efforts and investigation, we have come to know from the bank account the Reckon Print is existing and its. Prop Mr. Suresh a resident of Sector 21, is also looking up work of Kaizen Graphics at UBS premises the firm which is in his wife’s name. We are again approaching higher police authorities to find out details of the crime and persons managing Reckon Prints and other firms involved so that case of piracy, illegal printing, forging and misusing of our ISBN can be registered effectively.
Perhaps the university Syndicate has not taken any concrete decision in their meeting of 23rd March 2008 though the issue was on agenda in spite of all proofs provided by us. We are failed to understand why P.U. is taking so much time to nail a culprit. Now with so much evidences our legal advisors are in a position to file criminal case in the High Court and demand CBI enquiry to get justice.
With our own personal efforts have been able to get details of bills and payments received, from the university Business Schools, thanks to the RTI Act of Govt. of India, helping the common people. With these papers, documentary evidences and facts we took up the case to the Chancellor, but with so much delay and no firm action it seems that university authorities are in no mood to take action against such habitual offenders though so many cases/enquiries are already against Mr. B.B. Goyal.
Further, we have come to know out of total payment of Rs. 27040/- for 81 copies of the book, taken from UBS; the last payment of Rs. 4080/- (Cheque 485072) was got released on Sept. 18, 2006 i.e. well after we had informed the Dept. and University authorities regarding this illegal act of Mr. Goyal and his associates between 9 Sept. to 15 Sept. 2006 by 5-6 registered letters.
Reckon Prints seems to be a fake publisher illegally printed/pirated book as with no ISBN of his own; using our ISBN illegally. Reckon Print along with Mr. B.B. Goyal forged our ISBN on the illegally produced book that is a criminal offence. We are forwarding herewith copies of facts obtained from The Chairman, UBS, through DUI, Panjab University under RTI Act to you along with other documentary evidences.
Although we have already suffered irrevocable losses at the hands of a mischievous university teacher yet we request to take up the matter and give adequate coverage in your paper so that these regular habitual offender types of persons are not able to misguide and cheat innocent people in future. This will be a social mission for society in general. In case you want to see any document in original your are welcome to visit our office on any working day.
