In the 22 state colleges of Tripura, students can take online college admission without paying extra for registration. Tripura’s Education Minister Ratan Lal Nath announced the move on Tuesday keeping into consideration students’ welfare during the unprecedented times of pandemic.
On the admission portal of these colleges, students can access detailed information pre-requisite for filling the admission form. Once students sign up on the portal, they can choose colleges of their own choice. Telephonic assistance will be available in case of any queries. The admission will be done on merit basis.
Students are only required to share their higher secondary examination marks, roll numbers, photograph and signatures. Once the registration is complete, students can apply to their preferred colleges.
“The students can apply for a minimum of six colleges and a maximum of 15 colleges. They can take admission in colleges online without moving out of their homes. Admission in colleges would be done on merit,” explained Ratan Lal Nath.
The classes are supposed to commence from September 6 once the admission is done by August 20. Merit list will be published in three phases on August 25, August 29 and September 3, 2020.
“We have also decided to waive charges of online portal registration, admission, college development and tuition fees. But the university registration fees and other nominal fees would stay,” further added the Education Minister.
