CAP introduced to ease admission process

By Kamalika Bhattacharya

Are you looking for a transparent admission system in the higher education sector? The Mahatma Gandhi University located in Kerala has decided to introduce Centralised Allotment Process (CAP) for its undergraduate programmes from the new academic year. It is for the first time that a university in Kerala is introducing CAP for its undergraduate programmes. The University had already implemented the CAP for its postgraduate courses successfully last year.


The aim of CAP is to enable the students to choose intelligently a course with utmost freedom.The greatest advantage is that it saves time. The students need to submit only one application. They can always track their progress online. CAP eliminates the fear of manipulation at all levels. The students are thus provided an excellent opportunity to choose rightly a course as well as an institution of their choice without fear or favour.

The marks at the Plus Two level will decide the weightage for the admissions to the degree course. It also saves a lot of unnecessary expenditure on submitting applications at different institutions. The admissions can be submitted online. CAP thus eliminates anxiety and unnecessary visits to institutions to enquire about the admission process.

According to reports, 100 per cent seats in government colleges affiliated to Mahatma Gandhi University will be filled through CAP. In aided colleges, it will be 70 per cent while 50 per cent seats in un-aided colleges will be filled through CAP. The university has 112 affiliated colleges (63 colleges in the government and aided categories).

However,the management quota and the community merit quota will be filled by the managements concerned, as per the existing rules. The admissions under cultural/ sports quota for outstanding students are also decided by the respective colleges in the best interests of the students and the institutions concerned.The admission process for undergraduate programmes will begin only after the publication of the results of the CBSE and Plus Two examinations.
