Dr Inderjeet Dagar, the Principal of the College, has said that last year the college had kept a high cut-off for these vocational courses, due to which the college could not find students for these courses. Dagar added that the college had to lower the marks threshold to get students into the class. As per the report, the college had to release between six to eight cut-off lists before it could fill students in its classes.
Dagar told Navbharat Times that this time the cut-off has been kept low to get the seats filled at the earliest.
