Sibal terms 100 percent cutoff in Delhi University college irrational.

New Delhi, June 15 (ANI): With the cutoff at Shri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC) being an unbelievable 100 percent, Union Human Resource and Development (HRD) Minister Kapil Sibal on Wednesday said the government is on the students side, and added that it is unfortunate that some colleges have record cutoffs this year.

"I am unhappy to hear about 100 percent cutoff in one college. The right to admission cannot be denied. This is an attempt to keep science students away. We can't stop science students from studying commerce," said Sibal.

"I request the Delhi University Vice Chancellor to take note of it," he added.

Meanwhile, Delhi University Vice Chancellor Prof Dinesh Singh said: "100 percent cutoff is unfortunate. First list is always cautious, other lists will come down. Cutoffs will come down in the subsequent lists."

SRCC Principal PC Jain, however, said: "100 percent cutoff is justified. The college has been following the practice for many years."

The first cut-off list for Delhi University is out and it seems like a student's worst nightmare, as the cut-off at Shri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC) is an unbelievable 100 per cent.

Hindu has announced the subject cut-off at 99 per cent, while Lady Sri Ram College has placed it at 97 per cent. This is a clear five to ten percent increase in cutoffs, as compared to the fist list in 2010.

Not just commerce, even science cutoffs have also broken all records. (ANI)
