this is the whole matter
Advocate Vishal Baghel, President of MP Law Student Association, filed a PIL demanding action on the scholarship scam. He had told the High Court that from 2010 to 2015 hundreds of private paramedical college operators of the state had embezzled crores of rupees from the government by showing admission of fake students. At the same time, during the investigation, it also came to light that the students in whose name the colleges took money from the government did not appear in the examination. After this, a case was registered against more than 100 college operators. So far, out of 93 paramedical colleges, only 20 colleges have been able to recover.
