The University of Delhi has found itself amid chaos as after it invited applications for unfilled seats and allowed already admitted students to re-apply for those seats. Over 1,50,000 applications have poured in for few vacant seats. The students who have already got admissions were unable to re-apply as the website did not allow them a go ahead without cancelling the allotted seat. Hans Raj College, Ramjas, Deen Dayal Upadhyaya, Lady Shri Ram College, Kirori Mal College are some of the big names with vacant seats. The colleges were scheduled to issue the merit list by Wednesday, 5 PM, most of the colleges found themselves in trouble on how to tackle such a large data and issue the list on time as the verification of the documents were taking more time.

When on Thursday, the colleges announced a fresh merit list, parents and students went into dizzy reporting problems with it. Deen Dayal Upadhyaya, Hindu College, Ramjas College, Sri Venkateswara College and some others came up with their cut-off list and said that anyone with equal or above cut-off mark can attend the admission seminar. The confusion remained that how colleges will decide for the seats if two or more applicant have same number in class 12th because they are not going to release second or third merit list.

Many students found themselves helpless as even they have qualified as per the fresh cut-off, they found their names missing from the lists announced by respective colleges. One of the DU officials said that such student should go the college and meet the admission incharge. The University of Delhi has changed the norms on July 25 allowing the already admitted students to re-apply for the vacant seats.

The other problem that occurred was blocking and unblocking already enrolled students. Students also alleged that sites were not opening sometimes causing delay in filling application.
