Keeping in view the convenience of admission seekers, Delhi University (DU) has started using all the communication means to reach students to make them aware about admission procedure. Apart from the websites, helplines, and open day session, the varsity has also started using community radio DU 90.4 FM as a mean to reach out to DU aspirants and their parents. The DU 90.4 FM transmits 30-minute live phone-in programmes on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 4 pm to interact with aspirants and parents. A one-hour phone-in programme at 10 in the morning on all days excluding Sunday has also initiated by the varsity.
Queries asked by aspirants and parents about admission procedure are answered by the faculty members, non-teaching staff and senior officials of the University. 'Most of the students asked about the admission process, how to apply, whether the common pre-admission form is enough to register the admission seeker at colleges, the best college, the best course, and entrance examinations for different programmes,' said Dinesh Gupta, Reader in the Hindi Department, who handles day-to-day functioning of the community radio. Parents too have been calling up to get information about courses and colleges. However, the community radio cannot reach as many people due to the problem of overlapping frequency with other private radio stations in Delhi. The DU community radio has a radius of 10 km.
