Manish Sisodia, the Delhi education minister has
planned for a change in admissions procedure of the prestigious Delhi
He suggested that an entrance test should replace
the cut-offs method for enrollment of students in DU. He has written to the
Union Human Resources Development Minister, Smriti Irani for mulling over this
new procedure. He termed the high cutoffs as "anomalies" and wants a change
as suggested an entrance test for admissions and an extra weightage for city students
in government colleges of Delhi.
"Due to anomalies in admission process of DU
which is based on cut-offs, lakhs of Delhi students are suffering as applicants
from state boards have more marks than them. Recently the scams behind Gujarat
and Bihar toppers have also come to light and because of such practices
students here are suffering. This will ensure that students from all areas get
equal opportunity of admission in DU," he mentioned in his letter to
Irani. "Delhi Government is giving Rs 300 crore annually for 28 DU
colleges run by it. So at least in these colleges, Delhi students should get
weightage of five marks from the current session to ensure no injustice is done
to city students," he further added.
This step will benefit students of the Delhi NCR
region if HRD ministry works upon provision of extra weightage to the students
