Private Colleges Say No to DCOM Students – The New Indian Express


COIMBATORE: Students who have completed Diploma in Business Practice (DCOM) said they cannot join second year of B.Com under lateral entry as Bharathiar University (BU) affiliated colleges do not follow the order of the Department of Higher Education in this regard.

One student, K Sindhu, told TNIE, “The Directorate of Technical Education (DoTE) Order 2021 stated that beginning this year, students who have completed DCOM at polytechnic colleges may directly join the second year of B.Com in private colleges under side entry. In accordance with the standard, colleges should create 10% seats and admit sophomores of B.Com. The DoTE also asked universities to make sure. But, private and government arts colleges refuse to give us places in the B.Com course in the second year for various reasons. Education is denied us even after the order.

Another student, R Archana, said: “I went to five colleges in the city, including a government college, to gain admission. Management staff at Peelamedu Supported Women’s College said they could not provide us with places as there was no proper order from the university. I approached the Government College of Arts and Sciences for Women in Puliyakulam, where B.Com staff said they could not “create” new seats. I received the same response from the rest of the colleges including Coimbatore Government Arts College. Also, staff treated us badly at some colleges.

P Chandrasekar, an activist from Coimbatore, told TNIE: “This denial of admission indicates that private colleges will not follow any orders from the government.” Asked about this, BU Vice-Chancellor P Kaliraj told TNIE: and the necessary steps will be taken.
