DU to get tough with two-timers

Students can book seat in only one college

Delhi University from this year has come up with a stringent cancellation of admission policy if they find any student taking admissions in two colleges simultaneously.

“Usually once the student has taken admission in a particular college or course, the documents remain with the college. But there have been instances when the students were able to take admission simultaneously in two colleges or courses after a cut-off list was out.

They do this to block seats and later cancel it if they get their preferred college or course in the next list. We at our level will keep a check on such discrepancies,” said a senior official.

J M Khurana, dean, student welfare, said the aspirants after a cut-off list is declared can take admission, but if in the second list the student gets his preferable course and college, he will be able to cancel the first admission.

“The student have to write a letter to the college regarding this situation and the college will return all the documents back.

But taking admission in two colleges at the same time is unacceptable,” he said. If the cancellation of admission is due to falsification, concealment of facts or documents, no fee will be refunded, he added.

Up to Rs 1000 will be deducted from the college fee submitted by the candidates who wish to cancel or withdraw their admission.

Refund rules

Students lose Rs 250 from the college fee they have paid if they apply for withdrawal
 before the last date of admission. Pulling out after the last date but by July 31 will cost them Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 if they withdraw only by August 16. No fee will be refunded after that.

The alterations in this year’s admission process come after the recommendations of the high-powered committee that reviewed the admission norms in the university last year.
