New Delhi: The Delhi University (DU) has announced that the online registration for admissions will be free for students from backward communities as well as for physically challenged students.
However, those under general category will be charged an amount of Rs 50. For convenience of students, the payment can be done online using credit or debit cards.
The cost for online registration has been reduced from Rs 100 to Rs 50. Until last year students from SC/ST/PH categories could not register online.
The move has been taken in view of making admission process easier for students, especially those coming from far off cities.
The fees for filling the form manually will be Rs 100 for general and OBC students and Rs 50 for SC/ST/PH students.
Separate forms will be issued for students under general and OBC categories and second for SC/ST/PH students.
Furthermore, the students will be required to fill additional information about family income, mobile number, the kind of schooling and area of the school in the OMR form.
The DU also will offer SMS alerts to students at the time of admission this time.
