Tweaking the rule a bit for the betterment of the students, the Delhi University has recently announced that the students who have already taken admission in any of the colleges under DU need not withdraw their admission to re-apply at the institutes which still have vacant seats.
The earlier admission rule clearly stated that the students have to withdraw their admission from the colleges in which they have taken admission to apply to another college. This new decision is expected to bring a series of withdrawals from the colleges and create some trouble for the administration to manage the admission work during as the academic session has already begun this year.
The Delhi University had earlier notified the students that this year, there would be only five cut off lists released by the university and the rest of the vacant seats would get filled at individual colleges according to merit lists.
The students after taking admission to colleges under DU gradually came to know that they cannot re-apply to these colleges until they withdraw their admission from the present college. This triggered rage among the parents and students and they met with the Dean Students Welfare (DSW) to complain about the rule.
The admission committee of the university called an immediate meeting and decided that the students should be given chance to re-apply to these colleges without withdrawing their admission from the present college that they have taken admission in.
Parents complained that the admission bulletin of the university didn’t have any mention that the students would not be able to apply to other colleges if they have already taken admission in any other college.
Provided the seats at the different colleges remain vacant, under this process there would be five merit lists released by the colleges.
Though, there are objections registered from different corners of the university as some student organizations have objected that the change in rule might give encouragement to corruption and malpractices in the admission process.
