Admissions to the prestigious universities are not
easy. Not only the cut off's but the technical glitches also was also a serious
matter of concern for the students.
On Thursday, the first cut-off list was displayed
and all the candidates who were eligible for admissions applied in various
colleges. Because of the rush of students and parents, the metro train's signal
system developed a snag. "The signal snag led to application of emergency
brakes as the train moved towards Rajiv Chowk station. This slowed it down,
leading to bunching of trains behind it between 8:14 am and 9:10 am," the Delhi
Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) spokes person said.
However, the problems did not end here. This year,
the university had decided to make the entire admission procedure online. After
the cutoff list was announced, the students studied the list and started
applying for colleges in which they were eligible. The university's website
crashed early morning itself and the candidates were left helpless. They rushed
to colleges to seek alternative options but the efforts went in vain because no
other mode to apply in the colleges was present. "The website isn't
working and I went to college thinking they will allow me to take admission
since I am eligible as per the cut-off but I was told that the slip is
mandatory," said Nasreen Ghai, a B.Com aspirant who was present at SRCC
college looking for other alternative options.
This is the first time, university has adopted the
procedure of online mode of application. The officials were heard saying that they
were well aware of the fact that such type of problem will arise due to heavy traffic
online. The technical team is looking in and the problem is being solved. On
account of this problem, Kirti Ranjan, Officer on Special Duty, Admissions,
said, "The technical team has been monitoring the server and few glitches
were reported. We are looking into it".
