A professor at the School of Open Learning, Delhi University, has written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi expressing concern about the delay in the commencement of admission process for Under Graduate courses.

A copy of the letter has also been sent to the Ministry of Human Resource Development.

In his letter, Secretary, Staff Council, SOL, Janmejoy Khuntia, has urged the PM to look into the matter, and instruct the University Grants Commission and the Delhi University to allow the admission process for BA, BCom, and Honours programmes for the current academic session.

“Despite being a major stakeholder in the system, here at SOL, we have never been informed about this serious academic issue and the causes, thereof by the authorities concerned. “We are never consulted as well to find out solutions to problems facing this great institution,” he said in a statement.

According to Khuntia, nearly 1.5 lakh students take admission in SOL. Most of them come from the marginalised sections of the society or government schools who could not get into regular colleges.

“Normally, the admission process starts in the month of June or beginning of July,” he added.
