In order to curb down fraudulent admissions, University of Delhi has taken a step by asking its affiliated colleges to take the help of Forensic Services. This measure has been taken in hopes of reducing the discreet swindling of paperwork that is done every year.
The reputation of one of the most prestigious universities nationally was not associated with fake admissions until the much talked about issue of ABVP leader and former DUSU president, Ankiv Baisoya came into limelight, following which he stepped down from the post of president last year.
DU officials in order to maintain transparency and legality throughout the admission procedure have come up with this stern decision in their first meeting for the 2019-2020 session on Tuesday. However the decision has not yet been made official and is subject to discussion with college principals.
Apart from the use of forensic services, the officials also mulled over the need for reducing the number of documents required such as migration, transfer and character certificates during the admission process. Further discussion was also held to develop such a mechanism that allows the students to correct their details in the admission form after it has been submitted.
