Garo bodies urge govt to follow strict rule for college seat allotment
Dimapur, August 23: NGOs of Garo Hills including GSU, FKJGP, ADE, AYWO and FAF have strongly protested the redundancy in the candidate selection for specialised education relating to candidate’s nomination and admission to various State sponsored colleges in Engineering, Health, Fisheries, Veterinary, Agriculture, Horticulture, Home Science, Sericulture & weaving, Forest and Dairy Tech under Meghalaya state quota.
The organizations demanded the concerned departments to consider the matter seriously while nominating the candidates so that no duplicity and re-allotment of seats are made against any government quota for the Year 2016–17.
They also appealed to the Government of Meghalaya to consider suggestion that a strict rule be followed to prevent duplicity in seat allotment to colleges.
A statement issued by the organizations said, “Prevent the switching of courses by students midway in the academic year. Enforcing the bond signed by the students should they switch courses. Coordinating the departments to ensure that a student does not reserve seats in several different colleges offering different courses by applying for many courses thereby depriving others.”
“It would be helpful to the students if a consultancy services are rendered to the students to determine their aptitude and tendency for a particular course by the concerned departments before nominating or reserving a seat for them under the state quota. Restrict the students from seeking entrance to different colleges under the state quota.”
