Approval from education boards must for students wanting to change name Delhi University

To deter candidates from prefixing their names with A during the Delhi University Students Union (DUSU) elections in a bid to elevate their ballot number, the university has made it mandatory for students to get their names changed from their respective boards of education first.

Surprisingly, the two dominant student organisations of the campus — Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) and the National Students Union of India (NSUI) — whose candidates have been accused of indulging in the practice, welcomed the move announced through an official notification.

It is hereby notified that it is mandatory for students seeking change of name to get his/her name changed from CBSE/state boards/other related boards first,



In 2014, the All India Students Association (AISA) had moved the Delhi High Court on this practice, following which the court in September last year asked the university to take a decision on the matter.



Several candidates, including current DUSU president Satender Awana from ABVP and his opponent Pradeep Vijayran from NSUI, had prefixed their name with AAA hoping to secure more votes as many confused voters click the top button by default.

However, both ABVP and NSUI welcomed the move and said such a practice was followed by individuals, not organisations.

It is a welcome move by DU. Over the last few years this name changing has become a culture, but as an organisation we have never encouraged it. But its not like people won because of that. Several of our candidates also won without prefixing their names because people vote for ideologies, said ABVP state secretary Saket Bahuguna. However, he expressed his reservation about the move being a successful deterrent.



NSUI national president Roji M John also welcomed the move and said it would shift focus to real issues. It will discourage people from changing their names. It is high time that such practices should go. While some of our candidates did indulge in the practice, we never took it into consideration while giving out tickets, he said.



Applauding the intent of the notice as a welcome step, AISA state president Anmol Ratan said the rule needed to be strictly implemented.

The administration should have clearly stated that the candidate must have all his/her certificates (10th and 12th, migration etc) received from the school board changed so that there is no lack of clarity, he said.
