Delhi needs more colleges to accommodate growing rush in DU: Goel

Rajya Sabha MP and Former Union Minister Shri Vijay Goel today expressed his concern over the sky rocketing cut-offs of Delhi University. The confusion regarding FYUP and delayed admissions has resulted in confusion and tension amongst students and administration alike.
Shri Vijay Goel said that, “the tussle between UGC and DU over FYUP caused the delay in admissions. Now, additional criteria for admissions for colleges have further added to the mess. Delhi University should expedite the admission process and help reduce confusion amongst students and parents alike who are worried sick about the future of their children.”
Shri Vijay Goel said that, “It’s the average student that bears the brunt of such high cut-offs. About 2.7 Lakhs of students are competing for just 54,000 seats in 61 colleges of Delhi University. Where will the average student go? They are left with no option but to migrate to other cities to explore opportunities which are an additional financial burden on the family.”
Blaming 15 years of Congress misrule, Shri Vijay Goel said that, “The Congress failed to provide decent higher education opportunities for city youth. No new colleges opened in the city in the last 15 years which is matter of great concern.”
It was the BJP Government in Delhi that established Indraprastha University in 1998 to encourage technical education and even opened 5 new colleges. To cater to the growing rush, Delhi University should open up evening colleges and promote skill development. There is a need for youth-led development. It is not just about empowering youth with skill to ensure employment. Skill development also serves as an important tool which ensures nation building.
He said that, “Nearly 65 per cent population of the country is below 35 years of age and promotion of skill development will provide ample job opportunities to educated unemployed youth not only in India but abroad as well. Today, even developed countries have accorded priority to promoting skilled manpower.”
Shri Vijay Goel said that, “Delhi University should give 4% concession of marks in admissions to students passing out from Delhi schools. Also, to reduce the pressure of students applying from other states in DU can open their branches of its prestigious institutions in neighboring states. It will reduce the number of applicants in DU from other states and hence provide more opportunities to Delhi students to study in their own city.”
