Inquiry team to look into students’ grievances at DU

Faced with a number of complaints from students about the difficulties being encountered in the admission process at Delhi University, the varsity has decided to constitute a high-powered inquiry committee to probe cases of violation of norms by the colleges.

The inquiry committee will reportedly be headed by a retired judge.
Dean of students welfare (DSW) JM Khurana said ‘The office of DSW has been receiving numerous complaints from candidates seeking admission to the undergraduate programme in different colleges of the university.’

‘Colleges are defying various notifications issued by the university from time to time. Colleges are denying admission even if candidates have the required cut-off, not retaining original certificates, delaying the admission process unnecessarily. This is forcing aspirants to unnecessarily visit the DSW office with complaints. These problems could have been resolved at the level of the college itself.’

Khurana added that in view of the situation, the university has taken a serious note of the violations.
Dhani Ram, president of DU SC/ST Teachers Association, said ‘Many aspirants to Delhi University’s (DU) undergraduate programme belonging to Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and Other Backward Classes are facing problems in even submitting admission forms at various colleges.’
