DU glitches are not a new stint for students. Session 2020-21 has also faced technical glitches, as notified by DU affiliated colleges’ principals.
DU for the first time has gone entirely online with the admission process from registration to verification and final assurance of admissions due to the Covid-19 situation. The varsity has implored students not to visit college campuses.
The admission portal runs unhurriedly. We had done a lot of homework. The protocol is resolvable, except for some minor problems, said Dr. Suman Sharma, principal of Lady Shri Ram (LSR) College.
Our teachers are on the phone assisting students and parents with the method. Some students are perplexed about provisional certificates. The college is taking care of it by giving sufficient time to them, said Sharma.
We are collecting applications from students, but the portal is slow. Many colleges are facing difficulties with the reserved category, especially the OBC. The students who applied under the OBC category did not get the latest certificate and uploaded older ones, said the principal.
Delhi university is asked to cater to the problem otherwise many students will be rejected.
Manoj Khanna, principal, Ramjas College said if a pupil wasn’t able to get the latest certificate in the given eight months, then he/she may give explanations in the days to come. Admission can be opposed if complete documents are not submitted, said Khanna.
When inquired about the number of admissions verified, colleges said they would come to a figure once the admissions get over under the first cut-off. However, Rajdhani College has verified a total of 74 students.
