The Department of Higher Education (DHE) on Wednesday brought relief to hundreds of students who had missed the deadline for online application to both undergraduate and postgraduate courses by re-opening the registration window again.
This is the second time the DHE has re-opened the registration window to cater to students who were unable to register themselves for the centralised online admission counselling.
Earlier, the DHE had re-opened the online window for registration between July 7 and 15 after it was closed for PG courses on June 23, while admissions to UG courses closed on June 18.
“This will be the last counselling,” the DHE said, adding that the decision to re-open window was taken following requests from students.
According to the schedule released by the DHE, this time the window will remain open till July 25, followed by the document verification process that will be done on July 26.
Between July 27 and 30, college-level counselling will be conducted to fill vacant seats under various courses at both government and private colleges.
In a letter issued and signed by Sachin Sinha, commissioner (higher education), he said, “In the interest of students, we are opening the registration window once again for three days from Wednesday.”
Thousands of UG students across the state missed the deadline to register themselves online because of a delay in their final semester results, as most of the state universities declared their sixth semester results after June 23.
Undoubtedly, the students cried foul and questioned the DHE’s move to allow students to register themselves on the basis of aggregate percentage in the first five semesters.
