An increase in the intake capacity of self-financed courses
The third list of ongoing degree admissions was out on Monday
27th June, freezing cut-offs in the city's well-known colleges at a very high level
and out of reach for average students.
In response to this, the city's top rung colleges have decided to request an increase
in the intake capacity of self-financed courses in a letter to the varsity. If approved,
students can expect a maximum 10% individual increase in the seats of each such
courses in different colleges.
Dr. TA Shivare, principal of Hinduja College said, "With 10% increase, a class of
60 will start having 66 students which can certainly be managed with existing infrastructure
and available faculty. This will help those students who have been unable to get
a seat in a college of their choice and have to compromise with colleges which do
not provide up-to-the-mark services."
Shivare continued, "Colleges have asked for an increase in the intake capacity in
the past and the University has usually granted us permission. Hence we are hopeful
to give students some good news this year. However, we will request the varsity
to give their decision immediately so we don't have to keep students in a state
Rajan Welukar, vice chancellor of Mumbai University, said, "First, data of such
colleges who are asking for an increase in intake has to come to the varsity. Then,
considering the demand for these courses, the university will take a decision."
