Students protest denial of exam admit cards

Students of Indian Academy, an autonomous college in Hennur, are accusing the college of denying them admission tickets even after collecting penalty for the shortage of attendance.

Several students who were denied admission tickets to appear for the undergraduate examinations beginning from Monday, gathered near the college demanding admission tickets.

One student, who says she was hospitalised for 45 days, said she was not permitted to appear for the exam despite submitting medical documents. Priya, the student said, "I suffered face paralysis and was hospitalised for more than a month. I submitted medical records but the college is not accepting them and is asking me to appear for next exams."

However, college authorities were unavailable for comment and registrar of Bengaluru North University Prof M S Reddy said, "Currently there is no provision to give relaxation for attendance even under medical grounds."
