Despite repeated reminders from the Gujarat University, most of the commerce colleges affiliated to the GU are under scrutiny. Most of these colleges have failed to provide details about the admissions that concluded in August.
The details have been sought by the university because, for the first time, centralised admissions had been conducted for all commerce colleges. After several rounds of centralised admissions, several seats had remained empty. The GU authorities had then handed over the responsibility of granting admissions against the remaining seats to the individual colleges.
"We now want to know whether the college administrators had adhered to the cut-off marks specified by us or they had disregarded it. Disregarding the cut-off marks will mean admissions were granted against the rules," said GU vice-chancellor MN Patel.
"Only a few colleges have submitted admission details while the rest are yet to do so. These details will help us check the efficacy of centralized admissions and also improve the process so that next year admissions can be conducted in an error-free manner," said Patel.
However, the compliant colleges are now crying foul. "We have submitted all details that GU had asked for and yet we are being penalized, along with those who have not complied with the university's order. Owing to centralized admissions, students had submitted their fees at GU. But because of the impasse, GU released the fees only on October 1. We could not pay our employees in September as the university had not released funds," said the principal of a city-based commerce college.
