    At least 10 commerce colleges affiliated with Gujarat University (GU) could be in trouble as the GU has initiated a probe into admissions granted recently by these colleges.

    The GU began the probe after receiving complaints that students with more than 65 to 70% marks are yet to get admission into any of these colleges. Several students’ unions made their representations before the GU vice-chancellor in the syndicate meeting on Sunday.
    Admission process in more than 50 commerce colleges affiliated with the GU had recently concluded. These colleges have the capacity to admit a total of 26,000 students. Despite this, around 7,000 students are still waiting to get admission. Most of these students have more than 70% marks.
    The GU authorities have asked the colleges to furnish details on number of admissions and the cut-off percentage in their merit lists.
    “After scrutinizing these lists, if we find that the college managements have not followed the GU’s guidelines, we will definitely take action,” said a senior GU official.
    Of the 50 colleges, 26 colleges have sent their details to the University.
