Technical glitches continue plaguing applicants even after second cut-off
Discrepancies in the admission forms continue to harass many Delhi University applicants, with many students missing out on admissions in the second cut-offs as well.
Many students faced peculiar issues with their registration forms, even as DU officials continue troubleshooting many problems at the Conference Centre in the Faculty of Arts. One prominent problem the officials faced was from Sunny, a physically handicapped student.
His mother told Millennium Post that despite being handicapped, his name wrongly figures in the General category.
"Sunny is physically handicapped. We filled the form accurately, but the system has declared him a General category candidate. So we had a word with the officials and they have promised to make the change," said Sunny's mother.
Several students were present at the Centre, as they had made minor mistakes in their registration form. "I made a mistake and chose male option instead of female" said Usha.
Many parents appeared to be agitated, as the minor mistakes had forced them wait for long hours. "At the time of registration, I forgot to fill up for BA programme and now they are saying nothing can be done to correct this" said an applicant, Bhavna.
Some students, who had secured their admission, were troubled because of the prolonged verification procedures. "I got admission in Kirori Mal in Maths Hons. The verification process is time consuming. I have to travel a long way for one signature," said Priya.
Moreover, applicants for postgraduate courses are also vexed, especially the outstation students.
"DU did not give information about the schedule of examination and release of admit cards like other universities do, be it JNU, or Ambedkar University. It should be the responsibility of the management to convey to the students the exact dates of examination, especially those who are outside Delhi," said Vani, an outstation student.
