Imphal, July 2: Amidst the optimism of Dhanamanjuri College becoming a deemed university, there has been report of misconduct on the part of the college authority in this year’s admission to B Sc programme.
The All Manipur Students Union general secretary L Reagan speaking to media today at its office alleged that students who have cleared the entrance test are not getting admission in the college. He further alleged that the admission committee of the college has been conducting the admission process in a suspicious manner.
The college authority has given only 2 days’ time for admission after the entrance test got declared, he said. Therefore, students from far-flung areas, particularly from the hills could not admit themselves in time. Deposited money is being refunded by the authority to those students who had deposited money to the bank for admission, but who have failed to admit because of the shortage of time.
Reagan cited a case of three girl students who were selected for admission to 1st semester in science stream. He said the girls had deposited their admission fee to the bank along with the required documents on June 23 2014. The clerk had then told the girls to collect their admission counterfoil on the following day, claiming that he was very busy.
Reagan continued that of the three girls, one could not turn up to collect the counterfoil the following day. Her two friends requested the clerk that they could collect the counterfoil on their friend’s behalf.
But they were denied of the counterfoil, saying that the girl should come and collect herself. But when the girl turned up on June 25, her counterfoil was found to be missing, as per the clerk’s explanation, added Reagan.
Reagan further alleged that the admission committee has been deliberately admitting students from the wait listed students. The committee is victimising students by denying their rightful admission which would harm the students’ career.
He appealed to the education minister for his intervention into the matter. Moreover this year’s seats have been reduced to 800 from last year’s 1000. Such deduction of seats is also seen in GP College as well, which is violation of right to education, Reagan added.
