Jamshedpur : Students created uproar at the Jamshedpur Women’s College as they demanded admission in UG part I. About 150 students locked the principal’s chamber and the staff room demanding admission in UG part I.
Students alleged that there are mistakes in the merit list and that in spite of the cut off, the college has admitted students with lesser percentage and have rejected those with 60-70 per cent.
Students who have passed intermediate from the same college demands admission in the same college as there is no other place to go now.
” We are protesting against the college administration. There are students who have been admitted with 43, 50 and even 55 per cent but students with more than 60 percent have been denied admission. We are surprised with the move and want justice. This clearly proves the anomalies.
Therefore we demand admission of all the students who passed out intermediate from the same college,” said Archana Singh, who led the students in the protest.
It may be noted that Jamshedpur Women’s College was established in 1953 with aim to provide the women of Jamshedpur a platform to shape their careers and lives.
With time were the demands of the society and the nation grew and changed.
The college, a constituent unit of Kolhan University, has been conferred ‘College with Potential for Excellence’ and ‘Conferment of Autonomous Status’ by University Grants Commission, New Delhi. It offers UG, PG, several vocational and add-on courses and B.Ed programmes.
