As students thronged the office of Delhi University (DU) Dean Students’ Welfare (DSW) to get their pre-admission forms verified,the DSW office asked colleges to verify the documents themselves.

The DSW asked colleges to check the CDs containing information about the applicants that was sent to them earlier. A page has been set up on the DU website for verifying online and offline forms. “It has come to our notice that some colleges are sending applicants to the office of Dean Students’ Welfare for verification of their online/offline pre-admission forms. This is causing a lot of inconvenience to them,” read a letter issued from the DSW office on Tuesday.

Another issue that has emerged during admissions is that of double admissions. University officials said there have been several cases where a student has taken admission in more than one college. “Some students are taking admission in more than one college/course because of the availability of original documents with them,” the letter read.

According to the university administration,colleges are required to take original documents of students who have been admitted.

“We have come to know that some colleges have not been keeping students’ original documents while taking admissions. Thus,they are able to take admission in two colleges at the same time,” DSW

J M Khurana said.

Fearing that they might lose a seat,students prefer taking admission in another college on the basis of the second or third list before withdrawing their admission from the first college where they took admission,a college official said.

Asking colleges to facilitate the process of withdrawal by students,the letter said,“In case a student cancels his admission in a college,in order to move to another college on declaration of a subsequent cut-off list or needs certificates for institutions outside Delhi University,the college must promptly return the documents to the student.”

On the issue of double admissions,Manasvini Yogi,Public Information Officer at Indraprastha College,said,“When admissions on the basis of the second cut-offs began,we got a lot of queries from students pertaining to withdrawals. They told us that they have taken admission elsewhere and wanted to shift to IP College. We asked them to meet the concerned department’s teacher-in-charge in our college,ask them about the additional eligibility criteria and be assured that they qualify for a seat here before they withdraw their admission.”
