New Delhi: Disappointing the Commerce stream students, who were looking forward to get admission in one of the esteemed colleges of Delhi University, Shri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC) on Saturday decided not to declare its second cut off list.

According to the college sources, admissions are near completion, seats are already occupied and Monday being the last day to submit fees, there is no point in putting up a second list.

SRCC Principal PC Jain said, “The general quota seats are already occupied and the remaining students will be given admissions on Monday.”

He added, “Already 150 students, who belong to general category, handicapped or foreign nationals, are contesting for remaining 125 seats. Hence, no question of second cut-off list arises.”

Evidently, SRCC has a total intake of 624 seats, out of which 501 are reserved for BCom Honours and 123 are kept aside for Economics Honours. Instead, the college has admitted 584 students for BCom Honours and 110 students for Economics Honours course.

Colleges like Hindu and Indraprastha College for Women have also echoed similar trends stating that admissions for Commerce stream are near completion and second cut-off list will be drawn only for other courses like Science and Sanskrit, which are facing crisis.

However, there is some respite for students, who have not been able to make the cut, from Khalsa College. Khalsa College officials agreed that some seats may remain vacant even after Monday’s deadline, in that case they might go for a second cut-off list, but the expected decline in cut off would not be more than 0.25 percent.

Colleges like Swami Shradhanand, Ramlal, Shyamlal and Bharti College are also likely to come up with the second cut off list for Commerce stream.
