Seminar on ‘Corporate Forensics & Intellectual Property Rights’ held in city
Nagpur: A one day seminar on ‘Corporate Forensics & Intellectual Property Rights’ and Poster Presentation,’ organised by Government Institute of Forensics Science, was held in city on Wednesday. A forensics expert from Delhi Ranjit Singh was the chief guest of the event.
During his address, Ranjit Singh threw light on many important aspects of forensic science. “There is a vast difference between corporate forensics and other forensics. Corporate forensics is totally based on facts and there is little chance of any shortcoming. Work has to be done with minimum documents in corporate forensics. On the contrary, in the forensics of different government departments, work is done based on large number of documents. Moreover, there are vast opportunities for interaction in corporate forensics. Frauds in connection with signatures and date of birth are found plenty in banking and insurance sector. Forensics experts play the crucial role in detecting such frauds,” he stated.
The forensics expert from Delhi further said that salaries and perks in corporate sector are more compared to public sector. Forensics experts come handy in detecting other frauds such as handwriting fraud. In courts also, the forensics experts representing a firm have to submit facts and figures diligently, Ranjit Singh stressed.
In his address, the Director of Government Institute of Forensics Science Dr Jairam Khobragade introduced Ranjit Singh and said that he has done Ph.D. in forensics science. This institute has also produced several forensics experts. “Admissions are given only on merit basis. This year, 90 students of forensics science have bagged jobs in different organisations. Moreover, 11 students of this institute have cleared NET exam. History is in the making,” Dr Khobragade declared.
During the seminar, a poster presentation competition was also organised. Around 250 students from Bilaspur, Indore, Sagar, Chandigarh, Amravati, Aurangabad, Andhra Pradesh, Jhansi and Nagpur’s Raisoni College, Mohta College, Ambedkar College, and Kamla Nehru College took part in the competition.
The seminar was attended by large number of Head of Department and Associate Professor Ashish Badiye, Associate Professor Dr Rajesh Patil, Dr Sanjay Thakre, and many others. Hansi Bansal, Niti Kapur, Harendra Bamburde and others worked hard for success of the programme.
