Noida police raids pool party, arrests 61 for flouting norms


Noida, June 15 | At least 61 men and women were arrested from a farmhouse in Noida where they were having a pool party in complete violation of the lockdown norms enforced in the city to contain the spread of the coronavirus.

The Noida police is now planning to meet the farmhouse owners to refrain them from holding weekend liquor parties.

On Sunday, 61 young men and women were arrested by the Noida police from a farmhouse located in Sector-135 for partying and violating Covid-19 protocols. The Noida police also recovered expensive liquor and beer bottles from the spot.

Earlier, on Saturday night, 14 persons were arrested by the police for an alleged pool party organised in Sector-135 at Noida Expressway.

In view of the increasing parties held on weekends, Noida police have now decided to take strict action against such gatherings. The police have decided to set up barriers and will question anyone who is seen going towards farmhouses after 7 p.m.

Noida Zone Deputy Commissioner Of Police (DCP), Rajesh AS, told IANS, “We will start strict checking on all the roads leading to the farmhouses by setting up barriers. After 7 p.m. every person will be questioned and strict checking will also be done.”

“We will hold a meeting with the farmhouse owners, we don’t know why they are flouting all regulations. We have earlier taken action against two to three farmhouse owners. We have informed all the farmhouse owners about a meeting with the police which we will hold in the next few days.”

Noida zone DCP said, “From now onwards if any farmhouse owner gives permission to hold such a party, we (police) will take action against them too.”

According to information shared by the police, on June 13, the police arrested 61 people, out of which 46 are men and 15 women. They were arrested by the Noida Expressway police from Green Beauty farmhouse Number 4 located in Noida’s Sector-135. The police also recovered 12 Kingfisher beer bottles supplied from Haryana and two McDowell English liquor bottles.

The police said, “All the accused were taking a bath in the swimming pool while partying in violation of the lockdown rules and were spitting in the open and were not even wearing mask. The police challaned all the accused on the spot with a penalty of Rs 6,100 for not wearing masks while a case was also registered against them.”

Earlier on Saturday, the police had arrested young men and women who were holding a similar party. Noida police revealed, “Nine men and 5 women were arrested for partying and flouting the Covid-19 lockdown rules by the Noida police on June 12.”

However, most of the party revellers are reported to be residents of Delhi-NCR and all of them have been booked under cases invoking relevant sections. Even during the Covid-19 pandemic, people are not holding back from attending parties.

Does MBA really help in getting a better job offer ?

Does MBA really help in getting a better job offer ?

Most students pursuing an MBA come with the sole objective of having a decent job offer or a promotion in the existing job soon after completion of the MBA. And most of them take loans to pursue this career dream. According to a recent survey by education portal  74% MBA 2022-24 aspirants said they would opt for education loans.

There are exceptional cases like those seeking master’s degree or may have a family business to take care of or an entrepreneurial venture in mind. But the exception cases are barely 1%. For the rest 99%, a management degree is a ticket to a dream job through campus placements or leap towards career enhancements. Stakes are high as many of them quit their jobs which essentially means loss of 2 years of income, apprehension and uncertainty of the job market. On top of that, the pressure to pay back the education loans. Hence the returns have to be high. There is more than just the management degree. Colleges need to ensure that they offer quality management education which enables them to be prepared for not just the demands of recruiters and for a decent job but also to sustain and achieve, all along their career path.

  • So, what exactly are the B Schools doing to prepare their students for the job market and make them industry ready ?
  •  Are B schools ready to deliver and prepare the future business leaders to cope up with the disrupted market ?  

These are the two key questions every MBA aspirant needs to ask, check and validate before filling the MBA application forms of management institutes. And worth mentioning that these application forms do not come cheap. An MBA aspirant who may have shortlisted 5 B Schools to apply for, may end up spending Rs 10,000.00 to Rs 15,000.00 just buying MBA / PGDM application forms.

While internship and placements data of some management institutes clearly indicates that recruiters today have specific demands. The skill sets looked for are job centric and industry oriented. MBA schools which have adopted new models of delivery and technology, redesigned their courses, built an effective evaluation process and prepared the students to cope with the dynamic business scenario, have done great with campus placements despite the economic slow down.

However, the skill set being looked for by a consulting company like Deloitte or KPMG may be quite different from FMCG or a manufacturing sector. Institutes need to acknowledge this fact and act accordingly.

  • Management institutes should ensure that students are intellectually engaged, self motivated and adapt to changes fast. In one word ‘VUCA ready’.
  • B Schools should encourage students to participate in national and international competitive events, simulations of business scenarios.
  • Institutes should have the right mix of faculty members with industry exposure and pure academics.

The placement records of 2021 across top management institutes indicated the fact that recruitment is happening, skilled talent is in demand and certain management institutions continued to attract recruiters even in the middle of an ongoing crisis.

It is time, all management institutes rise to the occasion, understand market realities and identify areas of improvement at both ends – students and faculty.

After all, the stakes are high at both ends. B Schools taking corrective measures will stay while those which are lagging will end up shutting down.
