Admission queues in Delhi University (DU) will be passé from this year onwards. Reason: the varsity has announced its admission policy for the forthcoming academic session and, to this end, it will follow an online procedure.
The online process of admission to 60,000 seats in DU’s undergraduate courses down till payment of fees will begin from 1 June. The admission process has been delayed by a week. The optical mark recognition (OMR) forms will now be made available on the varsity’s website, www.du.ac.in.
At the same time, the general candidates will have to pay a fee of Rs 100, while the same was Rs 50 for those belonging to Scheduled Castes/Scheduled Tribes category. After registering themselves, the students will have to upload self-attested and scanned copies of their documents.
The registrations will continue till 19 June. The first cut-off list will be announced on 27 June. Unlike previous years, DU will release five cut-off lists this time.
“As per a University Grants Commission directive, we have decided to make the entire process online. The admission process was not online till last year,” said JM Khurana, DU’s dean of students’ welfare on 31 May.
Explaining the process of online admission, Khurana said, “An acknowledgment will be given to the student following which they will be required to pay the fee online and key in the acknowledgment number.”
Also, a student who has taken admission in the first cut-off list cannot secure a seat in another college in the second list without cancelling his/her earlier admission.
