Delhi Lieutenant Governor VK Saxena has approved the admission of students on the vacant seats of BA, LLB and BBA LLB in Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University. LG office officials gave this information on Tuesday. Officials also pointed to a delay of about five years by the Delhi government in the admission process. Officials said that the admission of students has been approved on the basis of aggregate score of CUET in English, Legal Studies and General Examination for the vacant seats after the conclusion of the merit list of CLAT (UG) effective in the university.
This admission of students in Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University (GGSIPU) will be for the academic session 2023-24 in Integrated Law courses. It is noteworthy that Delhi’s LG VK Saxena is also the Chancellor of Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University (GGSIPU). Along with this, LG in its note has also advised to avoid unnecessary delays and start educational activities on time.
The LG has further directed that future proposals related to the admission process be processed through the Admission Regulatory Committee under the provision of Delhi Professional Colleges or Institutes Act 2007. Section 4 of the Act provides that the Admission Regulatory Committee will regulate the process of admission in institutions. It will also suggest guidelines to the government to ensure a fair, transparent, merit-based process in admissions.
It is noteworthy that Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University (GGSIPU) had said that it is admitting students in the above mentioned courses under 2022-23 CLAT (UG). However, in the last few years it has also been seen that some seats remain vacant. This leads to valuable educational programs being wasted. That is why the Board of University Management has decided to issue a notification allowing GGSIPU to fill the vacant seats on the basis of aggregate score of CUET in three subjects (English, Legal Studies and General Test).
