3 months and $400 for a ‘guaranteed’ Diploma from Uptron ACL?

Less than a week after J P Morgan Executive Director Ramesh Erramalli was in the news for his aggressive attitude towards a security guard, netizens have dug further into his educational background.

According to his LinkedIn profile, which has since been deactivated, Mr. Erramalli had graduated with an Executive MBA from the University of Hull (2009 to 2011) and had earlier obtained a Postgraduate Diploma in Computers & Information at Uptron ACL (1994 to 1996).

While there is nothing unusual about this on the surface, an eagle-eyed netizen Jack Song dug deeper into Uptron ACL and found out that its registered address was at B-96 Wazipur Industrial Area Ring Road in New Delhi – 110052.

Besides the fact that Uptron ACL was located in an industrial area, it is interesting to note that a school – which purports to teaches IT skills – does not appear to have any online presence. The eagle-eyed netizen thus took it upon himself to look up the school at its address.

Upon reaching the given address, however, the school was nowhere to be found but a business by the name of “Shri Ram Laminators Pvt. Ltd.” was spotted instead. Based on their website, the Shri Ram Laminators calls itself a “Manufacturer, Supplier of Orthopedic Belt Fabric , Helmets Laminated Fabric, EVA Laminated Fabric” that was established in 1991.

In any case, it is rather interesting that a school would share a location with a factory and have no visible signboard or classrooms. Nonetheless,Mr. Song persisted and later managed to locate the school, except that it was somewhere else at 41 Housing Society, Kotla Mubarakpur:

Posing as a student, Mr. Song managed to ‘enroll’ in a 3-month long diploma for a mere 21,000 rupees (S$403) which includes registration, library and course fees. According to Mr. Song, the school had even promised him a ‘guaranteed’ graduation.

Netizen: Ramesh has 2 BMW 7-series cars
On a related note, one netizen KI Prana Sufi claims to have worked as a security guard at Eight Riversuites some “two years back” and wrote that Ramesh owns not one, but two, BMW 7-series cars and was “super arrogant and snobbish”.

 

While unemployment, under-employment and retrenchments are creeping up for locals, someone who graduated from an unknown school like Uptron ACL has managed to afford a $1.5 million dollar condo and has 2 high-end luxury cars.

Netizen Zahrul Zaiden commented: “OMG! And this is supposedly to be better than out own tertiary education system??? Looks like someone, somebody are NOT DOING THEIR JOB PROPERLY. Thus depriving our own Singaporeans for the opportunity to excel.”

Unsurprisingly, a petition for JP Morgan to fire Ramesh has gained more than its target of 15,000 signatures in less than 24 hours.

Will JP Morgan fire one of its ‘own kind’ to appease?

    I already felt something is fishy about this guy when I read his FB post. It’s full of grammatical mistakes!

    I mean, someone, a director in JP Morgan writes that kind of rubbish English? Get any primary student from our GEP class and they’re definitely able to write better. How on earth did this chap manage to get his job in sg in the first place only our ‘dear’ pap knows.

    ‘Thank you’ pap! Bcoz of your ‘wonderfool’ policies, SG is becoming a laughing stock to the world. Also must ‘thank’ those 70% voters too. Many singaporeans are suffering bcoz of your sibeh ‘wise’ votes.

  • PAP signed CECA:

    Even before the job interview, HR would have done a thorough background check to make sure that a candidate’s qualifications have been verified. For a financial institution that handles large sums of investments, what can be more important than the integrity of its employees. MOM and SPF should probe deeper into all the visas issued to see if there are more of such case. This may just be the tip of the iceberg. Our students spend 3 years in poly/ 4 years in the university, but they let a foreigner have the job who has a 3-month diploma! Which university is his MBA from?

  • nus ntu smu rankings are fake:

    as we have always suspected, nus ntu smu world rankings are pap BS achieved via throwing a lot of 70% sheep CPF money into gaming the ranking system.

    otherwise how to explain so many world ranked nus ntu smu graduates shaking at home or driving Grab when fake diploma from ceca ah neh which helped ceca ah neh get Executive mba from Hull to finally land a job in 70% sheep land Singapore living NOT in overpriced HDB rental unit but S$1.5m condo and NOT bus mrt but 2 BMW 7 series.

    which 70% sheep living in so called executive condo, not the ceca ah neh private S$1.5m condo, is even a single BMW 7 series?

    lagi shocking is 70% sheep males all kena wasting 2 years NSF full time and then 10 years part time NSR when ceca ah neh every night go home happy happy wife no need guard duty no need Sunday rifle range.

    if 70% sheep MALES continue to vote pap GE2019, they ask for it. PERIOD.

    We said, PERIOD. but need to add, must add, if 70% sheep want pap type of salary, cannot study nus ntu smu. must study ceca ah neh diploma followed by EXECUTIVE mba. otherwise, end up shaking at home or driving Grab only, and during NSR only paid rank pay which is even less than condo security pay. Don’t be stupid. STOP being stuipd. vote OPPO. vote out pap.

    Thank you “eagle-eye netizen” Jack Song for doing SGNs a big favor. Wonder how many more of these 3-month diploma graduates from Uptron ACL are holding on to lucrative jobs in SG while some of our local poly graduates do NS/NSR and drive Grab or deliver GrabFood orders.

    You Can Get a Pilot License in India After Just 35 Minutes in Air

    https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2015-06-01/pilots-qualified-to-fly-in-india-after-just-35-minutes-in-air

    Bloomberg News: Anupam Verma has a certificate that shows he has flown an aircraft for 360 hours. He says he got it after sitting in the co-pilot’s seat for just 35 minutes.

    He’s one of dozens of pilots in the country who obtained certificates showing inflated flying hours and ground training, according to court documents and interviews with pilots, regulators and industry analysts. The son of a poor farmer, Verma was given a 2.8 million-rupee ($44,000) subsidy by the Indian government to learn to fly a commercial jet.

    If I am not wrong, it was fined $264 million by US regulators in 2016 for improperly hiring “unqualified” children of China’s ruling elite to win lucrative business in the country.

    Wall Street banks like JP Morgan has always been full of fast-buck artists looking for opportunities to gamble enormous sums of other people’s money in exchange for a large percentage of any of the gains. This activity, of course, has nothing to do with traditional “banking”, it is better described as publicly subsidized casino-type gambling, with the casino rigging the game in such a way that the public picks up the costs of the systemic risk, while the “players” enrich themselves until the game collapses and the fraudsters run for the hills…

    Hucksters aka ‘Human scum’ like Ramesh Erramalli is riding on PAP’s lucrative wave of meritocratic BS all the way to the JP Morgan bank. It’s a disgrace and I’m glad netizens are raising awareness of the issue. A meritocracy is a system where waste sinks to the bottom rather than floating. We obviously do not have a meritocracy.

    Let’s not pretend otherwise, JP Morgan is a hateful and partisan organization that pretends to be a neutral and reliable resource. I think the term , “Wall street Mafia’ applies to these folks. They are too big to fail and too big for Singapore government to touch.

    He obtained his citizenship through the spouse sponsorship. The question is how our ICA & SPF could grant his approval without thorough check on his academic qualification. Now he has been found to possess a fake degree according to online information. If that’s the case, then our relevant departments did not scrutinize his application. I guess perhaps he might have connections with our higher authorities.
    We the citizens are waiting to see the outcome of the police investigations. Hopefully, the AGC should press a deterrent sentence as the SAS requested.This will serve to impress upon other foreigners not to look down on Singaporeans and especially the 80 percent who live in HDB.
