    College furniture got damaged by students and college Management is asking me to pay for that as I am the Admin Officer of the college

    I am the Admin officer of an MBA college. Last week there was some dispute between the college principal and the students. The students got very much aggressive and damaged the furniture of college. I immediately called the police and then got controlled over the situation. The college Management is asking me to pay for the damaged furniture as I was responsible for all that. What should I do. Please guide.

    Hello Sir,

    First of all its not clear from your question that how was you responsible for the dispute. In case you were the sole reason for the dispute, definitely you should pay for the damages. But if you are not responsible, then, you should ask the students to pay for the damages. But you can do so only if you are not at fault at all.

    Thanks

    Hi,You are admin officer means you have to manage all infrastructure to and fro in the college.Those people damages the infrastructure will be responsible for the lose.As a admin to the college you have right to ask students to pay fine for the damage caused by them.It is ridiculous how the management asks you to pay for that.No need to pay. Yo can question saying that am not responsible.Regards,bsr

    Dear, sir it is not clear from your question how you are responsible for the dispute.you are admin officer of the college you have to manage only the college property. It is totally management and student responsibility to pay fine for the damage and destroyed propery.so,let them decided who is more responsible for destruction. You should try to keep yourself away from these dispute. Thank you

    You need to talk to the management about this issue.
    There are enough proof that the things are broken by the students.
    You need to have some evidence against the people who broke those things.
    You can charge the common breakage fee from the students.
    This is no your problem.
    Talk to management.

    Hi Sir,

    No ,Doubt your not involved or responsible for this.In-fact you had helped them by bringing control by police.

    If it has to be paid then its the students and not you.

    They are responsible not you.

    There is no rule which says if the furniture is damaged by student admin officer has to replace it.

    Then no one would be a admin officer.

    So,don't panic you need not pay.

    Try to explain in polite manner to higher official and see.

    But you need not pay.

    Thanks,

    Hi friend
    There is no guility of you in this matter.
    The victims are students and also principal because dispute was orign between principal and students.
    You should contact the school management commitee.
    Your work is administration if by the way any aggressive behaviour origenated by students then must be called to police for further help and control.
    If principal is asking you to pay money then you can load fir against the students.
    After that something will better result.
    You can also go to consumer forum for making clear fault between the matter.
    All the best.

    Dear Friend,

    I don't think you are responsible for the dispute.If really you are not responsible,try to convince the college management regarding the same.If the mangement is not agree with you & still asking to remit the cost of damaged furniture,you will have to deposit the amount or you can take the matter to the judiciary.Before that you should caculate the amount to be deposited.If you go against the management,they will start harassing you unnecessarily.So better to get some of the members of the management in you favour & settle the matter within the collage administration.

    Thanks.

    hi friend,

    There is no rule saying that the admin officer has to pay the damage amount in case the students damage it.

    As you were responsible in stopping the dispute, you need to be thanked by the college management.

    But my dear friend one thing is not clear, whether the dispute erose because of you or what?

    were you responsible for the dispute that took place in college?

    IF you are not involved in it, then you can be brave to face any consequences.

    Explain what you have did to stop the dispute that arose in the college to the higher officials or management in a polite way.

    Even after explaining if they do not listen to you, then you can take the help of the police in order to get into safe side.

    Explain the situation to the police and they will take care after them.


    thanking you
    ....

    As you did not mention the proper situation and condition about the faulty, so its difficult to provide you with straight answer. However, I would like to inform you, that if it's your fault from any of the side, then you have to pay for that, but if it's not your fault then you have to ask the students to pay the fine for same. Moreover, you can pass a notice to senior management regarding this issue, if it's not your fault else again I want to mention you that you have to pay if it's your fault any how from any of the angles.

    Hi. I am extremely sorry for what happened and as a result you have to suffer . I think it is completely unjust for you to pay for all the damaged furniture as you had nothing to do with the dispute. I think you should take a stand against this.

    You should go and speak directly to the management and tell them what exactly happened and that you werent in anyway were involved the dispute and are not at all responsible for the damage to the furniture even though the furniture was under your custody. Tell them how the situation got out of control and police had to be called.

    If there were any eyewitnesses present you should call them to testify your statement. The management will surely listen to you and ask those unruly children to pay.

    Best of luck. Thanks

    This is quite ridicolous decision from the college management to ask you to pay for the damages made by students. I think it's the sole responsibility of all the students who committed this mistake , must have to contribute equally. You haven't clearly mentioned what actually occured there, and what's the matter and who is responsible to create this incident. If you are not responsible for it, then you must talk with the management of the college and try to convenance them by understanding them the whole incident occured. You can protest for the same.

    Hello.

    If there is any damage caused by the students of the institution then management is not responsible for the damage.

    This damage should not be paid by you .

    You should approach those students and ask them to pay for it .

    if the damage is big then collect the amount from all the students if the institution.

    Thank you

    Hello,

    Being a collage admin you have the responsibilty to manage the students.

    If there is any dispute in the collage due to some reason then you should not pay the damage.

    Ask your management to look on this topic and give a proper justice.

    You can ask the students to pay the damage as they have done it.

    Thank you
