Many applicants find their names missing from sports trials list
The sports trials for Delhi University, which started on Thursday morning across its colleges, have not been free of controversy, as many sports quota applicants have claimed that their names are missing from the trials list.
Most DU colleges reserve up to 5 per cent of their seats, in accordance with the University's guidelines.
The varsity follows the list of the registered students for the trials, but many students claimed that their names were not on the list.
Sagar Bhadana from Faridabad told Millennium Post that he had his volleyball trial at PGDAV College, Lajpat Nagar on Thursday morning. However, he was disqualified without giving his trial as the registered list did not have his name.
Officials at the venue refused to conduct his trial without an authorised letter by the DU administrative department.
An official, who was looking after the case, told him that they will call the concerned officials, but not give him the authorisation letter.
Moreover, the DU web portal continues to create hassles, as some aspirants found their names missing, leaving them ineligible for trials.
Despite completing their registration and payments, the portal does not display names of many aspirants for the trials, thus making them ineligible.
Apeksha and Megha, both of whom applied for boxing, faced this issue and missed out on their shot at the trials. The two girls wish to pursue BA programme.
The trials will be held till July 6, at the end of which the varsity will publish the merit list of selected students who will be eligible for admission.
The merit list will be prepared on the basis of performance of students in the trial. The detailed schedule and venue for sports trial is available on the DU's official website.
