Delhi University (DU) is getting ready to crack down on aspirants who have taken admission at two colleges simultaneously.

DU sources said, they had received inputs from several colleges about a number of applicants who had secured admission at two colleges at the same time. The authorities said they were planning to take strict action against all such students.

A number of colleges under Delhi University do not retain the original certificates of students at the time of giving them admission. This allows applicants to take admission in more than one college at the same time, something that the rules of the university do not permit. Dyal Singh College (morning) and IP College for Women are two colleges where such cases have been reported.

"This is a very common practice among applicants who are not sure about the course they want. They may have got admission in a college of their choice but they still get themselves enrolled in other colleges in a course of their choice," said a senior DU official.

If a student is found guilty of taking admission in two colleges, a DU official said, both the admissions will be cancelled and the university may also file a police complaint against him/her.

"Those who reserve two seats are actually stopping some other deserving candidate from getting a seat. We have informed the applicants about the rules but it seems that our pleas have fallen on deaf ears," said the official.

If a candidate has got admission in a college and wants to take admission in a different college, all he has to do is withdraw the first admission, a process that involves writing a simple application.  A number of candidates, however, take admission in a different course and then withdraw the first admission.

"It is not just candidates but also their parents who are guilty of such behaviour as they push their children to first secure a seat in as many colleges as they can. It is very selfish to think only about yourself, at a time when a seat in a DU college is precious," the official added.
