Subject: Faulty admission process causing harassment.
I secured an eligible all India rank in AIEEE, to apply for the colleges coming under central Counseling. I was very keen to take admission through AIEEE counseling. However during the process of locking which was done on 28th June 2009, when I locked my choices, it did not give me the unique code and the system application did not prompt for a print out option. I tried it several times, but the application was logging out automatically. The time when I logged was between 6 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Due to this my options were not locked properly and as a result I came to know on 30th June that I am not eligible for Central Counseling. I inquired on this no.: 08702459191, they were unable to help me on this and asked me to call on the following numbers: 08702462022 & 08702462023. Both the numbers were not available through out the day. I fail to understand the point to give such numbers when the numbers are not functional.
On the day of counseling which is today, July 1, 2009 I was denied seat allotment because of the non availability of print out of the reference sheet.
With the rank that I have secured and other eligibility criteria, I satisfy to get admission in colleges under Central Counseling of AIEEE. Denying me admission because of a technical error which occurred at a particular point will waste my one academic year. I want to ask how many homes in our country has PCs at their home with internet connection and how many can access internet from cafes?
If I have given the entrance test, cleared it and also if I am eligible to apply to colleges under Central counseling of AIEEE, then why just because of a technical fault my admission is scrapped all together? Is it actually justified when year after seats are not filled and students like me are not getting admission for such stupid reasons. What is the point of taking an entrance test?
This step will not let me pursue my career as an engineer instead of qualifying the entrance. And the mental trauma of denying admission in spite of qualifying is an add - on.
Therefore, I would like to bring such matters into light, which not only cause harassment to the students, but also put a question mark on their career. Further, I seek help to bring such issues in public so that they don’t cause mental torture to students like me. If we can not rectify such process, we even don’t have right to speak about bright education system or non-workable efforts to improve Indian education.
I’m personally very depressed after this and clueless about how would I or where would I take admission. I hope to get a help.
