DU Scraps Entry of Kashmiri Migrants Under Fourth Cut-Off List

Well, if you are a Kashmiri Migrant, then it’s a bad news for you!

Delhi University (DU) has cancelled admissions of Kashmiri Migrant (KM) category aspirants in the fourth cut off list. While many parents and aspirants were unhappy with the decision, the university will provide counselling to them and assist them to get admission in other colleges.

Several colleges had come out with a corrigendum for the cut offs in the Kashmiri Migrant (KM) category in the fourth cut off list. This was because “We had decreased the cut-off by more than 10% which we were told was not as per DU rules”, a DU official said.

According to university officials, several colleges had reduced their KM category cutoffs under the 4th cut off list beyond the permissible limit – not less than 5% and not more than 10% relaxation from general category cutoffs. “Some colleges have even reduced the quota cut-off by nearly 15%”, an official said.

Atleast seven colleges had to issue a corrigendum. Bhim Rao Ambedkar College had slashed its KM quota cutoff for BA Programe to 59%, but corrected it to 71% in the corrigendum.At Aryabhatta, the cut off for economics was changed from 74% to 85%. Because of this, aspirants seeking admission in Delhi University under the Kashmiri Migrant (KM) quota were left disappointed after DU colleges denied admissions.

Mehak Pandita, a KM candidate who had applied in a DU college said, “It’s a state of trauma for a lot of students applying for admission under this quota. We are confused where to go, with almost no help. The colleges are denying admissions saying that they have to obey the orders of DU. On the other hand, Delhi University is refusing to help stating that the fault is on the part of colleges where they won’t interfere.”

Considering the issue, DU officials on Tuesday said that they will assist aspirants with their admissions to other colleges where they meet the cut offs.
