DU Admission 2017 UG course: Three students tried to take admission in Delhi University’s Sri Aurobindo College by submitting fake mark sheets and documents from a fake board during the admission process. The case surfaced on Monday after which it was reported to the police. The fake marksheets and documents were issued by ‘Board of Higher Secondary Education(Delhi).’ All three of them had filled up the forms and were in the process of getting their documents verified. As per Indian Express report, Angad Tiwari, a member of the college’s admission grievance committee said,”It was during the final verification process that the machine showed that the documents were not genuine. First, there is no such board. Then, as we were trying to verify their claim, two of the aspirants ran away. One of them was taken to the principal, but he also ran away, leaving the documents.” The national capital does not have a board of its own. However, the ‘Board of Higher Secondary Education (Delhi)’, on its website, claims to be an autonomous organisation under the Government of India.
Meanwhile, DU released its third cutoff list for admission to undergraduate programmes provided by the colleges affiliated to the university. The last date for the cutoff was July 10 and student who now wait for the fourth cutoff should visit the official website of University of Delhi or du.ac.in. According to an India.com report, a Delhi University official confirmed that out of the 30409 admissions approved this year, 29106 candidates have paid their fees. More than half of the seats have already been filled at Delhi University’s popular colleges like Lady Shri Ram (LSR), Kirori Mal College, Daulat Ram College, Miranda House and Ramjas College. Those students whose names did not appear in this list need not lose hope as the fourth cutoff is yet to come.
