The latest directive issued by Calcutta University could well end harassment of students vying for a seat in colleges of their choice. The practice of students taking admission in several colleges and denying entry to other students with a lesser percentage will also stop.
Calcutta University has made it mandatory for colleges affiliated to it to begin admissions only after June 28. This will ensure that a student cannot block seats in several colleges, said V-C Suranjan Das. CU Pro-VC (academics) Dhruvajyoti Chattopadhyay stated clearly, We hope to end harassment faced by aspirants. We have asked colleges to publish lists by June 25. The students will, thus, have afair idea about which colleges they can get admission to. They can take admission to the college that is their first choice. He added, CU received several complaints that colleges were reluctant in handing over the transfer certificate to students or were charging money in exchange of a TC. This will also stop such practices. Asutosh College principal Dipak Kar said, we shall strictly adhere to the new rules. This will ensure that a student cannot block seats in several colleges. We collect statistics of the last five years to ascertain the number of seats that later fall vacant in each department. We inform students on waiting lists that they should remain in contact with us till a particular date. Thus, any vacancy within that period is communicated to them. However, what about those seats that will fall vacant after the West Bengal Joint Entrance counselling Unless CU or other universities can formulate a central admission system and also end their admissions after the WBJEE counselling, a few seats will remain empty each year. Students will continue to migrate to engineering and medical colleges without informing the general degree college in which they had taken admission, concluded Debashish Sarkar of Goenka College.
