Taking a cue from the recent revelation of 20,000 students submitting irregular documents, Dr Abdul Kalam Technical University (AKTU) will be scrutinising the admission process for academic year 2017-18.
A total of 841 institutes are affiliated with AKTU with 93 colleges in Ghaziabad and 75 colleges in Gautam Budh Nagar.
At the time of admission, students are supposed to submit class 12 mark sheet, transfer certificate, character certificate and domicile certificate. For scheduled caste, scheduled tribe and other backward caste students, caste certificate is also necessary
Recently, AKTU administration had kept the admission of 20,000 students for the academic session 2017-2018 on hold after they found documents submitted at the time of admission in 2016-2017 to be fake or filled improperly.
The 20,000 students were given another opportunity to submit their documents.
“Friday was the last day to submit the documents and we will come to a decision in two-three days on revoking the suspension of students,” said Aashish Mishra, spokesperson, AKTU.
The university administration has decided to check the documents of students during the admission process itself. Every year, the university administration conducts a national level Uttar Pradesh State Entrance Examination (UPSEE) to select students. This is followed by a counselling process where students are allotted colleges according to their preference and marks.
“This year, we have decided that we will scrutinize documents at the time of admission so that such cases are not repeated. The decision was taken at an academic meet in March when many raised questions on the admission process of the university as the students’ documents were checked at the end of the academic year. Therefore, we have decided that by November end, before the first semester exams begin, we will check the documents of every new student,” Mishra said.
“The university has decided that admission of students, whose documents are found to be irregular after rechecking, will be cancelled. Such students will not be allowed to sit for the first semester exams,” Mishra said.
