Here’s a piece of good news for 1.80 lakh students pursuing private BA, BCom and MA courses. Taking another step towards technology, Chhatrapati Shahuji Maharaj University (CSMU) plans to make the availability of admission forms for private students online from this academic session onwards. With this, both the regular and the private students would be able to get themselves enrolled with a click of a mouse.

The decision was taken by the university authorities to ensure timely completion of admission procedure of private students and avoid inconvenience otherwise caused to the students in coming to the university unnecessarily. Notably, Kanpur University had already made the facility of filling up of the examination forms of regular and back-paper students online.

Vice-chancellor, Prof Harsh Kumar Sehgal said that the decision would help the students opting for private exams download the forms and submit the completely filled forms on the internet. “This can even be done from their home, thus saving their time spent in making rounds of the university.”

“Most of the times, the forms used to get delayed or they used to get lost during the delivery spoiling the year of the university. More so, much time was wasted in separating the forms. With the introduction of this system, we would try to utilise the time in conducting the private exams on time,” maintained the V-C.

The officials were satisfied with the success of making backpaper forms online and thus, they were hopeful that availability of private forms would help the students in similar manner.

What is the procedure?

The students need to get the fixed fee deposited in the bank, for which they would be provided with a token and a code. The students can look for the procedure on university’s website ( and get the form downloaded. The filled form would be in two sets: One would be sent to the university along with required attested documents and the other set would remain with the students.
