Ved Prakash, Chairman, UGC has asked all the universities to give ‘top priority’ to put in place an ‘Online Admission System’ for all programmes offered by them in the next academic session. The UGC chief has sought details of the progress made by them in this regard.
The UGC chairman, in a letter to Vice Chancellors of various universities, said that the progress achieved by the varsities in implementing the online admissions will be reviewed in a meeting scheduled in early January.
He said that establishing online admission system will not only ensure greater efficiency but also promote transparency in the functioning of the various institutions. He further added that it would also help students and parents in making informed choices.
For other universities, where the processes are not online or only partially online, the UGC chairman has asked them to indicate the steps proposed by them for converting the process into a complete online mode from academic session 2016-17.
