Admission process in Delhi University likely to go online.

The University of Delhi is looking thoughfully in making their admission process online


A 24-member committee, consisting of deans/principals from faculties of commerce, science and arts. Members from the executive and academic councils has already been formed to formulate an admission policy to be notified by next month.

"The committee recommended that the admission process should go entirely online. Last year, the varsity had attempted the same but offline admissions also continued as there were some concerns from parents and students about the feasibility and easiness of the process," a committee member told PTI.

"However, even UGC has given the go-ahead for the same and the process has been already tested so the admissions are likely to be completely online from this year," he added.

Two meetings has been conducted by the admission committee headed by the Dean of Students Welfare.

Other recommendations likely to get included are centralised fee collection system for all the colleges and reducing the number of cut-off lists.

"So far, with the offline admission system being in place, the application centres used to collect the fees. However, we are thinking of making it centralised this time. All the payments will be made by the candidates to the university by which in turn will reimburse the respective colleges," the member said.

"Also, with seven to eight cut-off lists being announced every year, the process drags to the month of August, by when the classes have already begun. So the number of cut-offs are likely to be limited to five from this year onwards," he added.

The panel will submit its final recommendations to the V.C (Vice Chancellor) of University, who will then make the final decision on the admission policy for the coming session.

The admission process will commence from May. University of Delhi admits around 54,000 undergraduate students in various courses across over 60 colleges.
