“We had applied immediately following the DEB’s notice and have submitted the affidavit as per rules. We are ready for admissions
and will begin the process as soon as we get a go-ahead from the board. There is no delay on our part,” Dubey said. SOL authorities met DEB officials on Tuesday, Dubey added.
“We are hopeful to get accreditation by Wednesday morning. We cannot begin admissions without the DEB’s nod. Online applications will begin by Friday, if we get the accredited as scheduled. Offline admissions will begin a week after,” Dubey said.
