The process for filing of nominations for the Students Central Association (SCA) elections started in various colleges of the district here on Tuesday.
The final list of candidates was displayed on the notice boards after their scrutiny. Withdrawal of papers, if any, will take place on Wednesday.
There was a huge rush of students in various colleges. Candidates went to their colleges in processions to file their papers.
The college authorities have debarred 240 students from taking part in the elections as their age is less than prescribed university rules.
Principal of the college, Prof PC Patyal, said since these students were less than 17 years of age, they were not eligible to take part in the elections. He said the names of such students had been displayed on the notice board so that they should not stand in queue to take part in the polling process.
