Decision of Higher Education Department, extension of last date for admission in colleges to 5 December


The Department of Higher Education has again extended the last date for admission in colleges. The admission process will continue till December 5 in the colleges where seats are vacant. Around 5 percent seats are vacant in state colleges across the state, 10 to 20 percent seats are left vacant in aided and private colleges.

The admission process in colleges started on 7 September. The first and second merit list started online. After that, there was an open merit list and physical counseling started at the college level itself. If the seats remainvacant, the Higher Education Department gave instructions for physical counseling till November 20, furthering the admission process. 

By November 20, most of the general category seats of various faculties in state colleges were filled, but about 10 percent of the seats in the SC category remained vacant. According to this time guideline, SC category seats are being counted in the SC category itself, whereas earlier if the SC category seats were not filled then the reserve was changed to General. In almost all the colleges, one to two percent seats of general category are vacant, while about 10 percent seats of SC category are left vacant.

Every time after admission process, 10 percent seats have been increased in colleges, so that students can get admission, but this time the seats have not been increased in any college yet. Applications are three to four times the number of seats in state colleges. Student organizations have demanded from the government and the department that 10 percent seats in all government colleges should be increased.

Sheila Dahiya, Principal of Government PG College, Jind, said that the admission process will now go on till December 5. Admission fees will be submitted online after physical counseling.
