E-admission in junior and degree colleges made compulsory

Bhubaneswar: In a bid to lessen the bulky paper work and save time, the department of higher education has made e-admission mandatory for candidates seeking admission into various courses in junior and degree colleges.

Now on, the students seeking admission to as many as 1294 junior colleges and 162 undergraduate colleges, for the academic year 2011-12 will have to apply for their desired course and stream by logging on to the department’s website- www.dheorissa.in

However, the applicants applying for the first time through online need to follow the instructions carefully as follows:

The candidates need to log on the website www.dheorissa.com and download the Common Application Form (CAF) and follow the instructions accordingly.

As per guidelines, more than one application form filled in by a candidate will be rejected. The applicants need to fill up the computer generated CAF. No other form except CAF will be accepted.

The applicants have to give options of their six desired colleges in the order of preferences. They need to take admission in their preferred colleges if they are short listed in the first round of counseling. Unless they take admission they won’t be short listed for the second round of counseling.

If any of the eligible candidates opts for admission in his/her desired college after the first round of selection, the candidate has to give an undertaking that he/she won’t be considered for the second round of counseling. If the candidate wishes for a second round of counseling he/she has to need not give the undertaking.

This apart, the last date for filling up of forms has been scheduled for June 20, 2011.
Besides, a help centre has been established for the convenience of applicants and their parents and guardians. The help line number is 155335.

30 nodal points would function across 30 districts of the state.

While more than 3.5 lakh applicants are supposed to take admission at both junior and undergraduate level this year, the E-admission process is likely to make the admission process faster and easier.
