Registration for admission in University of Delhi has begun with the revised lower cost of the centralized admission forms. Candidates from general and OBC category will now have to pay Rs. 100 and SC/ST candidates will pay Rs. 50 for online and offline registration.
Students seeking admission will have to buy the form that would be available in 18 colleges of DU: five each from north and south Delhi, two from central Delhi and three each from east and west Delhi. Candidates who want to apply in St. Stephen’s and Jesus and Mary will need to apply separately as these colleges do not come under centralized admission procedure.
With optical mark recognition (OMR) forms available in 18 colleges, students can apply in 61 colleges with 41 courses. Overall, there are 54,000 seats which include 12,150 and 14,580 seats for SC/ST and OBC applicants, respectively.
With the series of protests from different groups expected to take place, admission process is expected to experience some difficulties. ABVP activists are planning a demonstration against FYUP in all the 18 centres demanding rollback of the four-year UG programme.
