Eight more CAP centres established
The Mahatma Gandhi University has established eight more facilitation centres in various parts of the State for the ongoing Centralised Allotment Process (CAP) for its undergraduate courses.
In all, 11 facilitation centres or helpdesks have been set up so far to offer free online registration facilities for applicants. In addition to the helpdesks that were established in Kottayam, Pathanamthitta and Thiruvalla, others that commenced functioning are at the municipal complex at Vaikom, University Study Centre in Pala, panchayat building in Pallickathode (in Kottayam), panchayat building in Kattappana, Newman College in Thodupuzha, the university information centres in Adimaly, Ernakulam and North Paravur.
‘Drop boxes' to submit the hard copies of application forms have also been placed at all of the 10 facilitation centres. The centres will function from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. Although the online CAP registration will close on June 3 at 5 p.m., hard copies of the applications can be submitted until June 6 at the 10 centres that have been designated for the purpose.
Inaugurating the helpdesk at Vaikom, university Registrar M.R. Unni expressed optimism that the centres would become popular among applicants and thereby, reduce last-minute rush at the university.
At the same time, the facilities would prove beneficial in terms of saving time and travel costs for applicants and guardians.

The college authorities said that applicants would be able to log on to their profiles and rectify any inaccuracies in their submitted applications from June 3 to June 6. They will also be permitted to make modifications in their submitted options of courses and colleges until June 7. Those who have not sent the copies of relevant documents will have to forward the same to the university or use the services of the drop boxes placed at various locations.
