Admissions in Delhi University have never been a smooth ride. One of the major issues that is often faced by the aspirants of Delhi University, during its course of admissions, is technical glitches. Yet another example of abrupt technical issues encountered, came upon the surface when Ved Prakash had to run around offices, to get his fees paid. Ved Prakash is visually challenged.As per Delhi University’s policy, physically challenged students are exempted from paying course fees.However,Ved Prakash had to pay 40 rupees,for which, he kept coming back to Satyawati College for five consecutive days.Prakash, a native of Ghazipur, Uttar Pradesh, got admission after the first cut-off list of Satyawati College,in Political Science.His documents had been kept by the college.The only issue was of the fees.
“To pay 40 rupees, I have been making rounds of the Satyawati College for the past few days. On Monday too, I went to the college. However, I was told to go to the Dean of Student’s Welfare. It has been five days since I have submitted my documents to the college, to secure a seat in Political Science (Hons.) but have not been able to make the payment. The dashboard did not show the payment option.” Prakash told Mail Today.
A lot of similar cases happened during admissions this year, especially in case of fee payment services. Technical disabilities hinder the process. The University officials, however, justified the fact that they have been working very hard to make sure that the aspirants do not face any glitches during the process.Also,Gurpreet Singh Tuteja, Dean of Students Welfare and OSD Admissions brought some relief to the studnents by saying, “For students who were not able to make payments for the course of their choice in the first cut off list, they can make payments by the third day of the second cut off, i.e., June 27th.”
