TISS, TATA Institute of Social Science has put halted admission to MA courses. Following the Mumbai’s High Court order, the authority took the decision.
A group of 49 students filed a petition against TISS in Mumbai High Court. They claimed that the admission procedure of the college is discrimination, biased, and based on the unilateral decisions.
Later on August 13, the court asked the response from TISS.
Also, students alleged that marks offered in the PI held at the Mumbai campus are comparatively low. On the other campuses of TISS, interview marks are reasonable.
Adding further, the file stated, ‘students given online PI gained more marks than the offline PI’.
The students now demanded to republish the marks after evaluation. The institute has asked to disclose the list of candidates applying for PG courses. This list should also contain the PI marks under the category wise decision.
Until the justification for disparities is provided, the petitioners have petitioned to stall the admission process. TISS has to submit an answer by 17th August. The subsequent hearing will take place on 18th August.
One of the officials asserted that the admission process is transparent. Due to the pandemic, some changes have been done. However, we have already informed about it. There was an inadvertent mistake in the output of PI marks, which were later rectified.
Adding further, he assured that 100% verification of marks has completed. They didn’t find any errors. Marks awarded to other pupils are confidential and we can not tell it to the third party.
