Students’ union

2017, 18: irregularities alleged

Mohammad Ibrar, Students’ union leader caught in cutoff row, November 10, 2018: The Times of India

Delhi University is yet to question Swami Shraddhanand College about the allegations of admission fraud surfacing there.

The governing body asked the college administration to investigate the case of a students’ union leader who got admission in 2016 in the BA (programme) course allegedly with less marks than the cutoff. This was after a section of the students levelled the allegation in a letter to the VC and other officials on October 27.

The officiating principal, P V Khatri, claimed that the college provides 1% concession to girl students and hence her admission was valid. But the college’s 2016 prospectus didn’t mention 1% concession. “All rules were followed,” Khatri said.

In 2016, the cutoff of the course in the final list was 74% for the general category. But the students calculated the students’ union leader’s percentage as 73.25%. The students also alleged bias on the part of the administration and claimed only some students were allowed to contest the polls this year. Khatri said that the complaints have come after elections and could be a sign of political rivalry. He added that the college hasn’t heard anything from DU yet.

Last year, a similar case had come up involving a presidential candidate for the union body. DU had formed a committee to investigate the matter, and on January 8 this year, had asked the college to suspend the student. The panel had also asked the college to investigate the admissions made in 2016-17 and 2017-18.

This year, however, the university has been silent on the case. Observers are spotting a similarity in DU’s reaction to this case and to that of Delhi University Students’ Union president Ankiv Baisoya. For almost two months now, the investigation against Baisoya in a case of fake degree hasn’t been finished yet.
