Patiala, July 7

Punjabi University has made its admission process completely online. Apart from launching a web portal for students to upload their documents, the university has also launched an Android application for the purpose.

University officials said, “We have launched an android app and web portal for online admissions here today. The initiative will benefit university during admissions for the upcoming session.”

“The system has been developed by Dr Gurpreet Singh Josan of the Department of Computer Science,” they added. Prof Arvind said, “Online admission process is the need of the hour. It’s boon for all university departments and students.”

Dr Manjit Singh, coordinator, admission cell, said, “Most students are from the rural areas. They have difficulty in scanning documents and uploading them on web portals due to lack of resources. Also, they have to come to the campus for admissions and for physical verification of their documents. This new system will allow them to complete all the formalities from home.”

Dr Gurpreet Singh Josan said, “Students will be able to click a photo of any document from their phone camera and upload it on the server. The department concerned will be able to view and verify admission forms and documents received online. This will also reduce use of paper and enable students to get information about admission from the comfort of their home.”—TNS
