Referring to the DU Act as a colonial law, Delhi Chief Minister, Arvind Kejriwal has written to the Ministry of Education. He urged the Centre to change the law allowing more colleges and universities to be established in the Capital. He expressed his concern over the high cut-off marks released by colleges for admission this year.
Earlier, various colleges under Delhi University had released cut-off marks for admissions in UG courses. Lady Shri Ram College for Women announced 100% cut-off for BA (Hons) in Psychology, Economics and Political Science. In thirty other courses, LSR fixed 99% as cut-off marks. Several colleges have announced 99% as cut-off marks for admission in various UG programmes.
Mr Kejriwal highlighted the need for opening more colleges and universities in Delhi. He stated that many students are facing problems in getting admissions in desired colleges. Adding that all students have a right to higher education, he underlined the failure of the State Governments and the Centre. He identified the less number of colleges as the reason for skyrocketing cut-off percentages.
