Lucknow University’s online counselling delayed on day 1

Technical snags marred the first day of online counselling of the Lucknow University. The first ever off-campus online counselling for admissions to various undergraduate courses was delayed by more than seven hours causing inconvenience to candidates on Sunday.

 

As per the schedule, online counseling conducted by National Informatics Centre (NIC) was supposed to begin from 11 am but due to server problem, the online counselling window opened around 7 pm. According to the university officials, the delay was caused due to some impediments in uploading the data. Prior to this, the university’s mock online counselling began a day after it was scheduled.

 

University officials associated with admissions said as per NIC, the actual choice filling should have begun a day after the mock counselling ended. But, the mock counseling went on till late Saturday night due to which the complete data could not be uploaded. “Only candidates who have gone through the document verification process will be entitled to fill up the seat of their choice. This took extra time uploading the information,” said Naveen Khare, admissions coordinator, LU.

 

Admitting that the delay affected the candidates, Khare said, “We apologise for the delay but it is purely technical in nature. We will try our best not to delay the process further.”

 

Troubled by the delay, Amit Verma (name changed), aspiring student for B Com said, “The mock counselling started late and now the choice filling part gets delayed. Since the university has gone completely online (from offline) this year, we are apprehensive. But now if these kind of problems take place, it will be difficult for us.” Going by the schedule, the university’s choice filling will end on July 2. The first allotment result declaration will be on July 5. From July 6-8, fee submission for first allotment will take place. The second allotment result declaration will be on July 12, and fee submission for second allotment will be from July 13-15.

 

For further hassle-free process, varsity officials have collaborated with the Sahaj Jan Sewa Kendra to help students in online filling of the choice for admissions in UG courses. “Candidates can also fill up the PG application forms from the centre” said Khare.echnical snags marred the first day of online counselling of the Lucknow University.
