Braving the rain, students turned up in huge numbers to buy prospectuses at Government SCD College for Boys on Saturday. More than 3,400 prospectus forms were purchased on day one of sale of admission forms.
Talking to the Hindustan Times, principal of Government SCD College for Boys Rajinder Singh, said, “We have set up three counters for the convenience of the students and more than 3,400 prospectus forms have been sold out on the first day. We thought that due to rain, students will not visit the college but rain has not dampened the spirits of the students. The admission process will start on July 11 and last till July 20.”
A student Rajesh Sharma, said, “It has been raining since morning but I decided to collect the prospectus from Government SCD College for boys today itself, but on my way there was a lot of waterlogging.”
Another student, Mayanak Kumar, said, “I stay in Dholewal and there was a lot of waterlogging in that area. So I decided to take an auto rickshaw to reach the college to collect the prospectus.”
