The Delhi University’s Open School Of Learning professor has penned down his concern over the delay of under graduation admission this year to the Prime Minister Narendra Modi. In his letter, he expressed concern about the delay in commencement of the admission process to under-graduate courses at the institute. The Secretary Staff Council, SOL, Janmejoy Khuntia, has requested the prime minister to look into the matter seriously by guiding the University Grants Commission and the Delhi University to allow the admission process for B.A. and B.Com, and Honours programmes for the current academic session.
Other faculty members of the SOL, University of Delhi, are also worried about the unwanted delay in commencement of the admission process for the first year, he added. "Despite being a major stakeholder in the system, here at SOL, we have never been informed about this serious academic issue and the causes, thereof by the authorities concerned.”
"We are never consulted as well to find out solutions to problems facing this great institution," he said in a statement. Khuntia added that as many as 1.5 lakh students take admission in DU SOL."Most of them come from the marginalised sections of the society/government schools/ who could not get into regular colleges. Normally, the admission process starts in the month of June or beginning of July," he stated.
This kind of delay in the admission process has created a lot of confusion in the minds of the general public and society. An extra copy of the letter has also been sent to the HRD Ministry.
