Allahabad University Authorities Postpone Admission for BSc, BCom, LLB

Allahabad University

The authorities of Allahabad University have postponed the admission process for BSc, BCom, and LLB courses till August 4. Admission for these courses would commence from August 5.

This decision was taken after the marathon meeting held on the campus on Wednesday chaired by vice-chancellor, Prof AK Singh and attended by members of the admission cell of AU. The meeting was called after a group of student leaders of AU forcefully stopped the admission process at Pravesh bhawan on Tuesday. The agitated students were demanding that the varsity authorities should conduct admission as per the guidelines of the Supreme Court wherein the Court, in its decision, had held that the minimum eligibility percentage for admission in central universities for OBC category candidates should be 10% less than that of general category students.

The student leaders of AU had raised the same issue in the year 2011 and 2012. However, the varsity authorities had maintained that since admissions at AU are not done on any cutoff merit, the decision of the court does not stand for AU. Later, the varsity authorities, while conducting admission for Law Five year in the year 2012, had removed the criteria of minimum cutoff marks which earlier was 40%.
