Jamia Millia Islamia to resume admission process

Staff Reporter

Dates for resumption of classes to be announced later

NEW DELHI: : The Jamia Millia Islamia administration on Sunday decided to re-open the University on Monday for completion of the admission formality. However, the dates for resumption of classes for the new academic session will be announced later.

The decision to resume the admission process was taken at a meeting chaired by Vice-Chancellor Mushirul Hasan and attended by the deans of faculties, heads of departments and other senior members of the administration.

In a statement, university media coordinator Rakhshanda Jalil said the revised admission schedules would be put up on the Jamia website "www.jmi.nic.in" by Monday afternoon. Students have also been advised to check the website for the latest information on resumption of classes.

Stating that only democratic means of expression would be tolerated and those indulging in violence would be dealt with severely, Ms. Jalil said rusticated students would not be allowed re-admission under any circumstance. But the administration had agreed to conduct a probe if any genuine lapses in the admission process were noticed.

R. Gopinath, a member of Jamia Teachers' Forum that had this past week demanded revocation of the order to shut down the varsity indefinitely, said the administration had shown an inclination to start classes soon. "It is a positive sign. All professors would be on duty from Monday onward and the offices would remain open," said Prof. Gopinath.

For his part, Shams Parvez, the outgoing students' union president, said that though the administration had agreed to investigate the lapses, if any, in the admission process, no timeframe had been fixed for that. "In case they conclude that there was definitely a lapse and it happens so after the admission process is over, then where would the genuine candidates go?" he asked.

He, however, welcomed the administration's decision to re-open the University for completion of admissions as "students' career should not suffer." "We have learnt that the classes would begin in a phased manner. It would have been better had the entire University been opened in one go," said Shams Parvez.
