New Delhi: It is that time of the year again when Delhi University (DU) colleges witness a beeline of aspirants for those courses for which they have made the grade in the first cut-off list.
This year the admission process has however got more stringent with colleges insisting on submission of only the original documents, and according to the DU officials this is an attempt at ensuring complete transparency.
Pratibha Jolly, Principal, Miranda House said that the originals and attested copies of documents need to be submitted and they rarely give provisional admissions because of the obvious demand and supply factors. So, students have three days from June 26 to June 28, to submit their originals in case they have made the cut and this is done to ensure that the entire process is fair and transparent, she said.
Colleges this year have this strict instruction to curb the practice of students taking admission in separate colleges at the same time. They need to submit their original documents, along with their photocopies.
An LSR College official said that the originals have to be submitted by the aspirants and no attested copies of the originals will do. This is also being done because a lot of aspirants tend to take admissions in two places, the official added.
He further also added that they are going to retain the originals as well as the attested photocopies to curb this and in case the students want to withdraw admissions, the original are returned in a few hours.
However, colleges also said that an exception would also be made to this rule, where the students will be allowed to take provisional admissions, only if the school or the board had failed to issue the originals documents. The colleges also said that this exception would be made only if there were a sizeable number of students with a similar case.
