Higher Education Minister CN Ashwath Narayan told the media on Monday that the university college admission process for the 2022-23 academic year through single sign-on will start from July 11.
For the first time, the admission process will be through UUCMS (Unified University and College Management System), he said. Students can apply for any college of their choice using a single login, without physically going to different colleges to submit applications.
Recently, students applying for undergraduate programs at different state universities through online portals have complained about technical issues. However, the minister clarified that students can start applying from July 11, through the single sign-on interface.
Narayan explained that by entering the PUC registry number, all the information related to the brand card can be obtained, and similarly, caste certificates, income certificates, among others, can be obtained through the Aadhaar Authentication.
Narayan further said that the committee headed by Dr. Vasudeva Atre has submitted a report to develop public universities in the state along the lines of IIMs.
He also announced new recruitments of professors in universities. “Universities will be instructed to recruit by calling candidates on the merit list for interviews in a ratio of 1:5. This new system has been introduced to bring transparency into the system,” Narayan said.
