Over 236 girl students have registered online for admission in undergraduate courses reserved for boys at Satish Chander Dhawan Government College.

SCD College also has an evening college offering BA courses where male students working during the morning can complete their graduation. This time, two female students have registered online for this.
Dharam Singh Sandhu, principal, said, “We have clearly mentioned the courses reserved for male students on the college website. The girl students who have registered online for these courses can check their application status as it goes automatically to invalid applications.”
The last date to register online on the college website is August 8. The college is also answering queries of students through emails for which staff of the computer department has been deputed.
So far, 3,896 candidates have applied online for seven undergraduate courses at Satish Chander Dhawan College.
