INSO demands changes in DU’s admission process

New Delhi, May 28
With the CBSE results having been declared, students seeking admission to various colleges of the Delhi University can be seen in the University area inquiring about admissions.

While the admission forms will be available in the Delhi University from June 3, some colleges, including St. Stephen’s, have reportedly started selling their admission forms in advance.

Ruchika, a school pass-out seeking admission in Delhi University said that she had come to know that some colleges were selling forms and hence she and her friends were there to collect it. “We came to know that if we wanted to apply for admission to St. Stephen’s, we have to apply separately for it,” she added.

Meanwhile, the Indian National Students Organisation (INSO) has demanded changes in the admission process of the Delhi University.

INSO State president Amit Kaushik demanded that all colleges should accept and sell centralised admission forms. The admission centres, where centralised admission forms would be available and submitted should not be restricted to merely 11 centres and this facility should be available to all colleges and other centres of the University.

He said that students in large numbers approach Delhi University for admission and have to face problems in submitting their admission forms as they had to stand in long queues.

Kaushik also reacted on the cost of the admission forms that has been increased from Re 1 to Rs 15.

He also expressed his anguish over the indifferent behaviour of the Delhi University Students’ Union (DUSU) over the issue.


DAM cries foul over dumping of NCERT texts

New Delhi, May 28
Peeved at the Delhi Government’s decision to dump the NCERT texts for the SCERT ones in the state run schools, the Delhi Abhibhavak Mahasangh (DAM) has described the move as “politically motivated”.

In a statement issued here today, the DAM has referred to the move as “a well though out politically motivated one to thrust particular political views on the student community, relating Indian History and entire education system”.

They claim that the change of textbooks from class I to VIII is “not only a burden on students, but also without any justification or merit. Under the scheme and planning, the already published books in vogue prepared by specialists would go waste and public money spent in their publication will do down the drain”.

The DAM has alleged that by “effecting changes at local and state level without any thought is going to jeopardise the uniformity in standard at national level and may also raise controversies”.

Seeking a prohibition on “spending huge amounts for the publishing of new SCERT texts”, the DAM has sought that the same money be utilised for “benefit of the poor and needy students and thereby effect improvement in the educational system by giving them the needed amenities”.
