The admission procedure has started for Delhi University but the student bodies demand for the relaxation in the cut off marks for admission to colleges under Delhi University. The Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) initiate an agitation that reveals their demand for the extra 4% cut offs. According to Vijay Goel, Delhi BJP President, students from Delhi should receive the 4% relaxation in the cut offs during the admission session at the colleges.
Large number of students supporting the demand has gathered at Jantar Mantar on 20 June Saturday expressing their views about the fact. The students divulge that many of them belong to lower income groups and thus they would not be able to continue studies at the private colleges. And due to shortage of seats many of the students would not be able to perform the higher studies under Delhi University. Therefore, relaxation in the cut off marks would help them to get the opportunity seeking admission at the government colleges.
In this respect, BJYM proposed that 15 new colleges should be opened in the neighboring areas including the cities and states that would be helpful reducing the pressure of the huge number of students. According to sources, each year about 1.3 lakh students pass out but among them only 10,000 get chances for admission under at the colleges under DU.
The Huge Gap leading to depression among students :
The true fact appears as large number of students crack the class XII exam but from there less than 30% are able to manage the seats at DU. So, here develops the huge gap that brings in strong sense of confusion and even depression among the students. The 4% relaxation would help these students to study well without any worries building up the successful career. A meeting would also be held with the youths deciding the right option that would be really beneficial for all the aspirants.
Responsibility of the Delhi Government
BJYM held the Delhi Government responsible for this issue, as not a single college was being established in the past 4 years where education is spreading at each corner. Only 54,000 seats are available for the undergraduate courses at DU colleges that’s not sufficient to accommodate the huge demand.
So, a complete anarchy has started and the students are waiting for the government’s decision about the cut off relaxation. The campaign would continue until the students are able to start the new episode continuing the higher studies.
