Patiala, June 21

Punjabi University will now fill seats left vacant at the time of admission or those vacated by students mid-course through a new policy of “lateral-entry-cum-migration”. Though the matter is yet to be passed in the Syndicate meeting, the university has decided modalities of the admission process and other conditions.

The lateral-entry-cum-migration policy will be launched from the 2021-22 academic session. Under the policy, students, who have studied first year of their respective courses at another recognised institute or university, will be able to take admission in Punjabi University for completing their remaining course.

In a notification released today, university officials said, “The university will collect details of all seats left vacant at the time of admission or otherwise vacated by students mid-course from its various departments. Lists of such seats will be uploaded on the university website and applications to fill them will be sought from students.”

“The lateral entry-cum-migration fee will be fixed by the Dean, (Academic Affairs), Dean (Faculty) and Finance Officer. The university will also decide the number and particulars of papers, which students have to appear in to clear their respective courses. The university will inform about its decision to the office of controller of examinations,” officials added.—TNS
