Two credit machines will be set up at Sri Venkateswara College so that parents and students can deposit their fee using credit and debit cards. Fees can also be submitted through demand drafts, cash and online through the Delhi University website www.du.ac.in.
'We are taking up this initiative to expedite the admissions process and to cut down on long queues. We will accept all types of debit and credit cards, of all the banks, except American Express,' said Principal Hemalatha Reddy. Nirmal Kumar, the admissions conveyor at Sri Venkateswara said, 'It takes hours to count cash. Besides, parents and students have to wait in long queues. We also often get complaints of duplicate 500 rupees notes. This computerised system will prevent that as well.' He added that this will also aid in reducing the paper work.
