MG University plans centralised allotment for degree courses

Staff Reporter


The university

will introduce

a hassle-free payment system

for students.


KOchi: The Mahatma Gandhi University has decided to introduce centralised allotment process (CAP) for its undergraduate programmes from the coming academic year.

Speaking to The Hindu, University Pro Vice-Chancellor Rajan Varughese said that the process would be applicable to degree programmes like B.Sc., B.A., B.Com., BBA, BCA and other new generation courses offered through all the colleges affiliated to the university.

The proposal for introducing CAP for the undergraduate programmes was put forward by the Academic Council of the university and was, subsequently, approved by its Syndicate in December 2010.

“The proposal for implementing a single-window process for admissions to various courses has been in accordance with the recommendations of the State government and the University Grants Commission. However, the timeframe for implementation of CAP can be decided only after the completion of the Class XII (or Plus Two) final examinations, conducted by the Kerala State Board and the CBSE,” said Dr. Varughese.

Transparency

He said that the success of the CAP in creating transparency, cost-effectiveness and rule-based norms in admissions to postgraduate courses was the main catalyst for the extension of the process to the undergraduate courses.

“In addition, a centralised system would assist in spreading info about the wide array of courses provided by the institutes to applicants from far-off places,” he said.

All seats in government colleges, 70 percent seats in aided colleges and 50 percent seats in self-financing colleges will be filled through CAP.

The registration and submission of relevant details can be made online on the university web portal www.mgu.ac.in.

In addition to the study centres and information centres of the university, the registration procedures could be fulfilled through the facilities provided by the IT@School Project and the Akshaya Centres of the government, according to Dr. Varughese.

In order to facilitate a hassle-free payment option for students, the university will soon enter into a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the State Bank of Travancore (SBT).

The university will also hold discussions with various students' and teachers' organisations, college principals, and representatives of college managements to remove any existing roadblocks and to ensure support for the process.
