There are around 54,000 seats for undergraduate courses in the university but the number of applications for the past three years has been over 2 lakhs. Not all students can be accommodated in the on-campus colleges and hence the cutoffs for off-campus are also seeing a sharp rise," said a university official




As per news reports, a total of 2,50,914 applications were received by the university for the 54,000 seats in 63 colleges, as compared to last year's 2,91,819 applications.
