The University of Mumbai has announced that degree college admissions may go online from next year.
More than 500 colleges are affiliated with the university and over six lakh students from various parts of the country take admission to the university every year.
Experts say that degree college students are experienced enough to fill their admission forms online and should not have to visit colleges to fill and submit forms. This would also save a lot of time and manpower.
According to reports, Dr Rajpal Hande, Director, Board of College and University Development, said they would talk to principals of affiliated colleges before taking the final decision. Students will just have to send a Rs 100 demand draft to the college when they submit the form.
