Bathinda: With the completion of second round of counseling in government colleges of Punjab, hordes of students are rushing towards private colleges of the state for their admission.

Candidates were seen busy in locating their names in the 2nd cut -off list after it was displayed by college authorities on the notice board on Tuesday at Government Rajindra college of Patiala. Those who had their names in the list immediately secured their respective seats by depositing admission fees in the concerned department.

But those who failed to get admission in the government colleges are being seen in long queues in the premises of the private colleges from last Monday.

Interestingly, until the admission process was on in the government colleges, the same private colleges were apparently desolate. However, the private colleges have not yet fixed any minimum merit to allow admission to the students. Sources say that a minimum of 45 percent marks could be declared mandatory for the admission of the students in the coming days.

Principal of DAV College said that students give priority to the government colleges instead of the private colleges as admission charges are comparatively low in these colleges.

Principal of DAV College, Dr JS Anand, says that the students prefer to get admission in government colleges due to comparatively high fees in the private colleges.
