St Stephen’s College files complaint on admission fraud


NEW DELHI: St Stephen's College has complained to police that an organization called eldorado.com collected a substantial sum from the parent of an aspirant promising admission to the college under the 'management quota'. The organization claimed that it had a memorandum of understanding with St Stephen's on admissions.

According to the college authority, the tutor for admissions, K M Mathew, has received a complaint stating that eldorado.com had promised admission to an applicant whose marks are below the 2012 cutoff level and collected money from the father.


Trideep Joshi, apparently the MD of eldorado.com with the mobile number 09863169431 and email id admnmd@eldorado.ind.in, claims that his company has an MoU with St Stephen's College in respect of admissions, the complaint says.

Principal Valson Thampu said, "We have issued a cautionary note so that if more aspirants have been duped, they can come forward and report the matter. We lodged a police complaint on June 26, 2012, and are in touch with cops." The authorities said such aspirants could either contact the college or Maurice Nagar police station. The college also clarified that it had not signed any MoU with anyone on admission.
