LG nod for IP varsity admission on score

Wednesday, 20 September 2023 | Staff Reporter | New Delhi

Delhi Lieutenant Governor (LG) Vinai Kumar Saxena, who is also the Chancellor of the Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University (GGSIPU), has approved admission of students on the basis of aggregate score of CUET in three subjects (English, Legal Studies and General Test).

These admissions will take place for vacant seats after exhausting the complete merit list of CLAT (UG) with effect from Academic Session 2023-24,in the five-year integrated law programmes of the University, officials said here on Tuesday.

While noting on the file addressed to Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, Saxena expressed his concern that the approval from him has been sought much after the commencement of academic session 2023-24, thereby causing unnecessary harassment to aspiring students of these much sought after professional programs.

Keeping in view the larger interests of the students, the LG approved the admission procedure, observing with concern, that the proposal for regulating admission in BA, LL.B/BBA LL.B Programme in GGSIPU for the academic session 2023-24, has been submitted in the month of September, causing inordinate delay in filling up the vacant seats in these courses.

Terming LG's statement unfortunate, the AAP said that it was Delhi government's initiative that has prevented any vacancy in private colleges of GGSIPU. "Many seats were left vacant as only CLAT scores were considered; and this is why it was decided that any remaining vacancies would be filled via CUET scores.

This is being done for the first time by any University," it said. It doesn't suit the LG to try and take credit for efforts being made by an elected government.
