Students claim Jamia denied admission to PhD after selection
New Delhi: Several students have allegedly been denied admission in various PhD programmes at Jamia Millia Islamia citing the non-availability of supervisors despite their names being mentioned in the list of selected candidates.
However, the administration has claimed that no students have been denied admission and every name mentioned in the “final list” was allotted a seat.
The students have claimed that there are around 80 PhD candidates across programmes who have been “denied” seats despite having all the documents and clearing written as well as the interview rounds.
The problem has been reported in several departments, including the Department of Mathematics, Department of Mass Communication, Department of Geography, and Department of Psychology
The students said their names appeared in the list of the selected candidates for the PhD programmes which is still up on the website.
However, when they reached their respected dean’s offices, they were told that they are not selected.
“Our whole year has been wasted. Many of us left our jobs when we saw the list. Now we are knocking on the doors of officials. They are not listening to us,” a PhD student, who did not wish to be named, said. The 26-year-old student wants to pursue PhD from the Geography Department of the university.
The candidate left his full-time job in Rajasthan and shifted to Delhi when he got to know that he has been selected for PhD programme at Jamia Millia Islamia. (PTI)
