Centralised admission for UG courses from 2010

On Monday, based on the report submitted by the Centralised Admission Process committee(CAPC),  principals from Bangalore and Shimoga colleges agreed with the education officers to implement the centralised admission process with effect from the academic year 2010-11.

The centralised admission process will enable students to choose from a host of colleges with the number of UG courses and the seat availability that will be displayed to the candidates. Nearly 40 college principals from Bangalore and 10 from Shimoga, along with the higher education officers unanimously aggreed to begin the admission process in two districts as a pilot project.

Higher Education Minister, Aravind Limbavali, said  that the report on implementation of centralised admission process has been accepted by principals of aided and unaided colleges.

“The admission process will be implemented in Bangalore and Shimoga as a pilot project. The details on the colleges and courses will be shortly worked out. The centralised admission process is aimed at bringing justice to students as they end up spending more than Rs 5,000 just to procure the prospectus and application forms from various colleges. The process will be on the lines of CET seat counselling,”  Limbavali said.

He also said that the common admission process will be implemented in phases and not in rural colleges for the time being. The common admission process at present is implemented in four varsities - Delhi University, Pune University, Allahabad University and Mumbai University.

The process is applicable to BCom, BA, B Sc, BCA, BBM, BHM and LLB. To begin with the Department of Collegiate Education has decided to implement CAPC at Bangalore and Shimoga. In Bangalore, four government colleges, 44 aided private colleges and 40 unaided private colleges will be included in the CAPC offering 48,000 seats in various undergraduate courses. In Shimoga, three government colleges, five aided private colleges and one university college will be included in the CAPC.
