Students and parents claimed that they had to face inconvenience as the sports trials for admission to the Delhi University began after a delay of about five hours Tuesday.
Director of the Delhi University Sports Council Anil Kalkal, however, said students are called in the morning and are sorted into teams and their documents are verified which takes time. He said the trials did not start immediately as things like these take time.
Many parents, who had arrived as early as 7 am, claimed that varsity authorities had asked them to come at 7 am but did not intimate them about the time the trial would start.
Ashish, a parent, who had come from Ghaziabad, said there was no intimation from authorities about the timings of the trials. He said authorities should have informed in advance.
Students reached the Sports Complex by 7 am, but were not given entry till 9 am. A student claimed that the experts, who were supposed to take their trials, arrived at the venue only after 11 am.
The trials for taekwondo (men and women), football (women) and basketball (men) took place at the Sports Complex.
The aspirants, who wanted to take admission on the basis of taekwondo, were waiting till 12.30 pm for the trials to begin.
The trials for basketball also commenced only after 12.30 pm, leaving the parents worried.
Kalkal said the students were called at 8 am for the basketball trials and the trial for the sport usually take three days because the students are organised into teams, given registration numbers and put into groups with different colour codes.
