Aligarh: At high level review meeting taken by the AMU Vice Chancellor, Prof. P. K. Abdul Azis has cancelled the list of admitted students for M.A. History and decided that a fresh list of candidates should be declared by 13th of August and admission be completed on August 20, 2009.


According to Dr. Rahat Abrar, AMU's Public Relations Officer, the Vice Chancellor had received a complaint that the admission to class M.A. did not take place as per the University rules. The Department of History insisted on marks-sheet before admission test which is a violation of the rules.


On first receiving the complaints from some candidates, the Dean, Faculty of Social Science constituted a committee of two senior professors, Prof. (Mrs.) Hamida Ahmad and Prof. Noor Mohammad to enquire into and the committee found that the list prepared by the Department of History has excluded those candidates who have not submitted their marks-sheets. In fact marks-sheet is not required at the time of admission form for departmental test, according to prescribed University rules, Dr. Abrar said.


The meeting taken by the Vice Chancellor found that some error and violation of procedure was apparent in this case. The Vice Chancellor ordered that the Department of History may prepare a fresh rank list as per the guidelines to admission that the University has the right to cancel such admissions at any stage at which the error/omission is detected.


The AMU Vice Chancellor, Prof. Abdul Azis also ordered that the University may issue a ‘Show Cause Memo’ to the Chairman and other staff involved in preparation of the list for not following the guidelines of admissions, Dr. Abrar added.
