DU admissions 2016: Delhi university today received 39000 applications for over 60,000 seats in various undergraduate courses on first day of the admission process.
“39000 candidates have registered on day 1 and 5600 have completed the process including fee payment,” a senior university official said.
This is for the first time that the university has introduced completely online admission procedure for UG admissions unlike previous years when it used to be both online and offline.
The online registration process began at 12 PM today and will continue till June 19. Few students complained of the admission portal being slow especially from 5 pm to 6 pm but the varsity authorities maintained that they had arranged for servers keeping in mind the expected traffic on the website and the students should check after some time in case of any problems.
The first cut-off list will be announced on June 27 and unlike previous years, the varsity will release only five cut-off lists.
The students will have three days to complete the enrollment process following publication of each list. The merit lists for the remaining seats after admissions conclude for the fifth cut-off, will be announced by respective colleges.
The centralised Optical Mark Recognition (OMR)forms will be available on Delhi University’s website — www.du.ac.in — and students will have to make the payment through Internet banking.
The fee for General category students is Rs 100 whereas for SC/ST students the admission form will cost Rs 50.
After registering themselves on varsity’s admission portal, the students will be required to upload “self-attested and scanned” copies of their documents after following the mentioned instructions and then make the payment online.
After announcement of the cut-off list, the students will have to log into their registered account and see the courses and colleges in which their percentage figures in the cut-off list, select the desired combination and then take a print out of the admission form.
The candidate will then be required to report to the college with the application form and original documents which the admission committee of the respective college will verify and deposit the originals.
An acknowledgement will be given to the student following which they will be required to pay the fee online and key in the acknowledgement number.
However, a student who has already taken admission in the first cut-off list will not be able to secure a seat in another college in the second list without cancelling the previous admission.
In case of withdrawal, the students will have to approach the college which will then report the cancellation on the university’s portal, return the original documents to the student and then only he or she will be able to take admission in another college.
