Delhi students should be given preference in DU admissions: Goel

Rajya Sabha MP and former Delhi University Students Union President Sh. Vijay Goel today expressed deep concern over the chaos in admission for undergraduate courses in Delhi University. He also demanded that the students passing out from Delhi schools should be given relaxation of  4% in marks in DU admissions.
Sh. Goel who has been leading the campaign for the last few years to give higher weightage to students passing out from Delhi schools in DU admissions said, “The preference in DU admissions should  benefit students belonging to other states also provided they have passed out the Class XII examinations from a school in Delhi.”
“Along with the students, parents in Delhi, especially those from the economically weaker sections, also feel often harassed as in absence of enough seats in DU colleges they are not able to send their children to other states. Sending a student to study in other state is an emotional and economic drain. So there should be a conscious effort by DU authorities to accommodate as many Delhi students as it can. They should have the first right over admission in DU colleges,” said Sh. Goel.
“The current chaos we have witnessed over the last few days  in DU admission is result of the inertia of last 15 years of Congress rule in Delhi when not a single new college was added to the Delhi University. Today from Delhi alone more than 1.3 lakh students clear their Class XII exams. Add to this lakhs of aspirants from NCR and other states,  and total number of seats in DU undergraduate courses are stagnant at 55000 for the last so many years.”
Sh. Goel said, “To ease off the pressure on students as well as college authorities, DU should immediately start evening colleges in all its morning colleges. I will meet the Union HRD minister Ms Smriti Irani soon and urge her to take up the issue of setting up new colleges in DU,” he added.
Meanwhile the DU authorities should ensure that the students do not have to stand in long queues in hot sun. They should be treated with dignity and respect. After all they hard work they have put in their Class XII, they deserve better than what they are experiencing because of inefficiency of DU authorities.
