Mumbai University has asked colleges to send information on the number of seats filled and vacant in first year degree courses. Every year, certain colleges ask for extra seats, while several others have some left. The varsity wants to ensure that seats in all colleges are filled.
University officials decided to do this because some colleges asked varsity authorities to allow 10% more seats than their capacity. Currently, more than 500 colleges are affiliated with the university. A varsity official said, "More than 15 colleges demanded extra seats for traditional and self-financed courses. These colleges have been doing this every year. Earlier, the varsity allowed them to increase seats, but from this year, it wants to stop this practice as students have become picky in selecting colleges." "We have sent the circular to all colleges asking detailed information about the first year admission process. Instead of granting extra seats to some, we want students to consider those colleges which have seats even if they are not of their choice," said Dr. Rajpal Hande, director, Board of College and University Development (BCUD). "I don't understand why some students make a beeline for a specific college. At least, when they don't get into a college of their choice, they should approach the ones who have seats left."
Dr. T. A. Shivare, principal of Hinduja College and chairman of association of non-government colleges, said, "Because there are so many students waiting to get admission, we approached the varsity for more seats. Earlier, it used to grant extra seats; it helps students get in to a college of their choice." "Students choose a college because they know the faculty there, the college's past results etc," Shivare added, explaining why some students insist on a particular college. "Good infrastructure of a college also plays a major role in attracting students."
