The university is also mulling to conduct the admission process online this year to avoid the travelling of students for the document verification process. “The colleges shall verify the documents uploaded by the applicants for eligibility and required cut-off. The course in-charge will verify the minimum required qualification, convener of admission will recheck and approve or decline the admissions and then principals will give the final approval or rejection,” reads the draft of the admission bulletin shared with the standing members, reports Hindustan Times.
The admission process has been delayed for more than two months this year due to the outbreak of COVID-19. Earlier, the application form was scheduled to be opened on April 2, however, due to the nationwide lockdown post the COVID-19 situation, the admission process has been delayed.
