New Delhi: The Delhi government has directed universities and higher education institutes to grant an additional three months for document submission during admission to students who were affected by the riots in the capital city earlier this year, reported The Indian Express.
Deputy Director of Higher Education, Narender Passi, said that as admissions require verification of documents, students who lost them due to the riots could be denied admissions.
Acknowledging the lack of resources and cumbersome process of getting a copy of the documents, the state government decided to aid students affected by the riots.
Passi said, “All education institutions, including Delhi State Universities, to give at least three months’ time to the affected students to submit original documents. Provisional admission may be given on the basis of mark sheet/certificate available on Digi Locker.”
He added that students were required to submit an undertaking to show their documents after three months, “failing which their admission may be cancelled.”
