The subsequent paper leaks and admission related goof-ups have finally taught a lesson to University of Mumbai. This year university may not admit students to Institute of Distance and Open Learning (IDOL) through MKCL (Maharashtra Knowledge Corporation Limited). The university is expected to admit students through an online portal, and is considering 3 other options including MKCL. The process will also be decentralized and about 20 colleges will act as study centers of IDOL.
IDOL officials called a meeting on July 10, 2012 to talk about the admission policy for distance education programs. The sources from the IDOL revealed that apart from the technical issues, the price cited by MKCL to fill each form online is Rs. 125. So the university is seeking other options. Contract for admissions this year may be given to other portal.
In 2011, students filled their admission forms from MKCL centers.
The university will soon take a final decision. An official revealed that the contract may be given to a leading portal working for e-governance in Maharashtra.
