Neither came central team nor rankings DAVV

Indore: Activists of NSUI on Monday alleged that Devi Ahilya Vishwavidyalaya (DAVV) flouted norms and gave ‘direct admissions’ to three students in School of Law, a charge which was refuted straight away by university vice chancellor Dr Narendra Dhakad. The activists, led by their district president Amit Patel and senior leader Vikas Nadwana met Dhakad at his office on Monday and furnished a list of three students, who they claimed were admitted in BA-LLB (Hons) course offered by the School of Law in violation of norms.

The activists claimed that one student was given admission in third year and two others in second year of the course. “Admissions in the course are granted through common entrance test. None of the three students had taken CET and they were transfer cases. They transferred from colleges to School of Law,” Patel alleged. The VC however clarified that admissions through CET were granted in the first year of the courses offered by DAVV. “For second or any other year, the right to consider applications of admissions rest with head of teaching department,” the VC informed the activists, refuting the allegations.

However, NSUI alleged that “Admission process was not made in a transparent manner. If there were vacancies in second or third year of law course, the HoD should have put them in public domain and invited applications for the same. However, this was not maintained in this case. Rather, the HoD gave admissions arbitrarily,” the student organisation said. The VC took their complaint in writing.
