The university has also decided to set a helpdesk which will deal with the complaints by students, while helpline numbers would be made available on the university website.
Earlier, the university issued a note of caution for CET candidates after some of them complained about touts approaching them.
The university officer appealed to the students, “They are there to get you. Be alert and don’t fall into their trap.”
Earlier, students claimed that some persons claiming to be agents of different officers and teachers of the university approached them and promised them seat in their desired courses.
On behalf of the university officials, the touts/agents asked for heavy amount for surety of admission in even courses like financial administration, marketing management and others for which a student need to score top rank to get a seat.
