College admissions: Riot-hit northeast Delhi students to get 3 months more to submit original documents – education
The Delhi government has ordered its universities and other institutes of higher education to provide a three-month break for students in the northeastern parts of the city affected by unrest in submitting original documents for admission.
The government said students may have lost their report cards and certificates during the riots and that the process of obtaining duplicate documents was cumbersome and time-consuming.
“Admissions to colleges and universities under the Delhi government have started. Admissions will take place after verification of the original documents. “There are chances that many students have lost their report cards and certificates in the riots in Northeast Delhi and may not be allowed admission due to unavailability of original documents,” said Narender Passi, deputy director of higher education. .
The process for issuing a score sheet or duplicate certificate is cumbersome and time consuming. Also, many do not have the resources or time to dedicate themselves to this as they are busy rebuilding their homes and their lives, he added.
The government has signaled the need for timely assistance to students affected by the disturbances in northeast Delhi.
“All educational institutions, including Delhi’s state universities, must give affected students at least three months time to submit original documents. Provisional admission can be granted based on a grade / certificate sheet available from Digi Locker.
“Additionally, students may be asked to submit a commitment to show original documents within three months, otherwise their admission may be canceled,” said Passi.
In February, the northeastern part of the national capital was rocked by violence in which 53 people died and more than 200 were injured. The areas most affected by the violence were Jaffrabad, Maujpur, Chand Bagh, Khureji Khas and Bhajanpura.
