Non-Delhi students face document hurdle

Parents and students from out-of-Delhi educational boards who went to Ramjas College on Friday without original documents were not given admissions.

On June 27, the DU registrar had issued a notification that said students from out-of-Delhi boards who are yet to get their original certificate should be given provisional admissions.
“The class 12 result of candidates should invariably verified by colleges through the boards results provided on CD wherever possible.

This can be collected from the office of the dean of students’ welfare (DSW), and is also available on the official varsity website,” the notification had stated.

“For other boards’ results, which are not available at DSW office, the results may be verified by colleges from the respective boards after granting provisional admissions to the candidates concerned.”

Admission committee members said a meeting of the committee will be held on Saturday to find a solution.

“The admission committee and staff council had decided that admissions will be given on the basis of original certificates,” said principal Rajendra Prasad.

“Students coming from Haryana and other boards don’t have original class 12 marksheets or even provisional certificates. Then on what basis should I give them admissions?” he said.

“DU is saying to look on the internet and the CD provided. Even if I give them admissions, what is the guarantee that they will not cancel it after 10 days? What happens to the seats left then? said the principal.

“I have a team of forensic
experts to verify documents, and they cannot verify documents downloaded from the internet,” he said.

He added that if the varsity gives clear guidelines to grant admissions in such a situation, then, they will be followed.

Being careful

According to admission committee members, the college is being careful about the documents as it does not want to repeat another fake marksheet scam.

“We are trying to find every possible way to help students. We understand the kind of pressure they are going through.

Saturday is the last day for admissions on the basis of the fist cut-off. All options available in the meeting will be discussed,” said a member.
