The students aspiring to take admissions in Delhi University’s Hindu college have major disappointing news waiting for them. The college administration has now decided to not enroll any students through the ECA quota.
Keeping in trend with the last year, the college will only admit students through the sports quota and will dismiss DU’s rule of reserving 5 percent seats for students under the extra-currricular activities quota.
The admission procedure through quotas was scrapped for the academic year 2014 due to complaints of alleged irregularities in the selection process. College chairman S P N Punj had then justified the decision saying the action was taken due to the complaints of irregularities forwarded to him by the university Vice- Chancellor.
Delhi University, too, has revamped the rules of admission through sports quota for the students. The university will now making videos of the entire process along with centralising the preliminary fitness test.
But, the admissions through ECA quota across other DU colleges are being conducted on the previous pattern. The trials are being held at respective colleges and the students were required to apply to each of them separately.
While the decision stands for now, no decision has been taken by Hindu college yet on whether it will admit students under the quota next year onwards.
