The Delhi University (DU) has officially declared that the disabilities certificates of 26 hospitals certified by government will be valid for the admission in DU.
This declaration was made on Tuesday in the Open Day Session organised by the university for the parents and students to discuss their grievances with university officials.
Recently, the Delhi government has given the right of certification to 26 hospitals to make the disability certificate. Equal Opportunity Cell Officer Bipin Tiwari of Delhi University has informed the students that they can apply for the disability certificate in any of the nearest certified hospital.
Not every government hospital is valid to issue the certificate. An aspirant’s parent Shailendra Shetty attended the Open Day Session at Delhi University and told the Times that his son has Thalassemia. He said that his son already resides a certificate that was issued by one of the hospitals that comes under Delhi Municipal Corporation.
This certificate was accepted by CBSE (Central Board of Secondary Education) but it has been disapproved by the Delhi University by giving an explanation that Sufdurjung hospital’s certificate will be taken valid as it comes under certified hospitals but Charak Palika hospital’s certificate will not be valid though it is also a government hospital.
The matter for Mr. Shetty is critical as the Sufdurjung hospital has denied to issue a disability certificate to his son as he already has a certificate from a government hospital. Shetty by showing his concern said, he is in dilemma what needs to be done as the last date to apply for the admission is 14th June.
