Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University, Delhi has introduced a few changes in its admission process, starting from this new academic session. Besides, the varsity has also been shifting the priority to students on top as suggests their new slogan “Students First”. The changes for good have been seen such as the structural change or mode of application for admissions etc.
To make things easily accessible for the students and revolve around them, the university has set the admission procedures entirely online, extended its reach and other initiatives in favor of students. The 2014 academic session will be the first to see the admission system going entirely online for enrollment to different courses. This will prove to be a lot convenient for the students as previously a considerable count of students had to roam in the university arriving from distant areas and other cities only to apply to the university main campus in Dwarka.
The Vice Chancellor Anup Singh Beniwal said that not only the abolishment of scope of Black marketing of Forms & Brochures will be seen but also the expenses on printing of forms will be out of the admission process.
He told further that the previous admission season incurred Rs 1 crore expenses for printing of brochures, and this year it will be saved. The decision will also lead to reduction of cost of the forms from Rs 1,100 then to Rs 750 now. This move may also increase the number of applicants for the university expected to come from about two lakh last year to about 2.25 lakh this year.
In addition, the university has also initiated a way to boost bright students belonging to economically weaker section by elevating the amount of scholarship from Rs 3 lakh to Rs 1.84 crore this year.
