I am annoyed by the increase in number of admissions through donations!
On an average, almost 40% of the students in every class secure their admission through donation.
Some people call it “Admission through Management” The names might be different, but the underline is: When you are giving donations you are eating the seats of hundreds of other students who scored way better than you in the entrance examinations.
It’s a shame that educational institutions accept donations; not just at the collegiate level, but also in the primary schools. It’s as if they are selling education.
I initially thought that, due the whole reservation system, may be the colleges don’t get enough funds from the meager amount of fees they receive from the open categories. But, I soon realized that the Government supplies the complete fee of every student in other categories. So, the college doesn’t bear any problem of financial scarcity.
This puts a BIG question mark as to why then do these colleges take Donations? Is it Legal in private institutions? (I have no clue.)
They show on paper that they offer 60 seats for a particular branch. And in-take is of about 90 students. All entered mostly after giving a handsome amount of donations.
It is becoming a trend. A thing to boast about among students. (I am SHOCKED!) Students coming through management/donations think that they have “bought” the college, they are never scared of the lecturers and never hesitate to mention that they came in through donations.
What the Heck!
For all the students, who are about to take admissions, don’t you understand that if you didn’t get a straight admission through the prescribed procedure, there are only 2 reasons for that:
1) You DO NOT belong to that place/ You don’t deserve to be there.
2) There must be some other place that’s just right for you.
I pity the students who take pride in their parent being able to pay the additional bucks. You ruin your future. You ruin the society.
Get an education, damn it! How could you let some one buy it for you?
