From the next academic session,the Lucknow University (LU) will suspend any self-finance courses for that session if the number of admission application forms received were less than 40 per cent against the total number of seats in that course. The LU admission committee took this decision on Friday.

If applications received were less than 40 per cent against total number of seats,the figure will further come down,as usually some candidates do not take admission even after being selected. Moreover,the university itself will cancel some applications. In such a situation,it will not be economically viable to run the concerned self-finance course,said an official.

The university has taken this decision citing past experiences when it had to suspend a course if the number of students taking admissions were less than 10. Post graduation in nanotechnology and material science are some examples.

Dr A K S Chauhan,LU Examination Controller,said: “Fund for any self-finance course is generated from fees and if admissions are less than 40 per cent,it will not be viable to run the course.”

At present,over 120 self-financed courses are being offered in LU. The university has decided not to introduce any new course in the new session but to improve viability of the existing ones.

According to LU authorities,admission application forms of post graduate (PG) courses will be available on the university website http://www.lkouniv.ac.in. Application forms for PG and under graduate courses will also be available in the university’s cashier office.

The university has also decided to give direct admissions to “out-standing sportspersons”.

“But it is yet to define who will come under the criteria of outstanding sportsperson,” Chauhan said.
