Move to stall online admissions decried

Government and Aided Degree College Principals Association has opposed the move of Department of Collegiate Education (DCE) directing government and aided degree colleges not to begin admission process until modalities of online admission process are made known to them.

Association Secretary Prof K Rajamohan Rao of Govinda Dasa College, Surathkal, said the move of Collegiate Education has created confusion.

Keeping in mind the transparency in admission and also to avoid delay in admission procedures, the government has decided to introduce online admission process in government and aided degree colleges from 2015-16.

However, the DCE has directed colleges not to go with the admission procedures till further order.

He said “the government has initiated the move of online admission as few colleges had in the past started the admission process before the results announced by PU Board.

“However, it is not right on the part of the Department of Collegiate Education to stall admission process. Pre-University results will be announced shortly and the students who wish to seek admissions in degree courses in government and aided colleges will be in doldrums with the direction of Collegiate Education.”

“Now colleges are forced to wait for government’s direction to start the admission process. With the centralised admission procedure, if students are allotted seats in far away colleges from their home town, many students may not continue their studies. The drop out rates are likely to be increased,” he added.

‘Withdraw circular’
The DCE should withdraw its circular and allow colleges to continue their admission process in a smooth manner.

Department of Collegiate Education (DCE) had decided to do away with normal admission process keeping in mind convenience of the students. The online admission is being introduced to bring in transparency in the entire procedure.

In fact, DCE had initiated online admission to degree colleges on pilot basis in five degree colleges last year.

They are Maharani Arts, Commerce and Management College, Maharani Science College for Women, both at K R Circle; Government R C College of Commerce and Management, Chalukya Circle; Government First Grade College, Vijayanagar, and Government First Grade College, K R Puram had received overwhelming response.
