In the view of COVID-19 spread, Delhi University (DU) is considering to make its entire admission process online. The step has been taken to minimise the students’ visits to the varsity.
Although the varsity has put the registration process on hold due COVID-19, its admission branch is working towards strengthening the process.
The varsity has begun the process of collecting information from colleges.
In a letter to principals of all DU colleges Professor Shobha Bagai, Dean (Admissions) said, “There has been a conscious effort to minimise visits of the students for physical verification of the mandatory documents during the admission process”.
The letter also said, “In the current scenario, it has been recommended that it becomes more imperative to have the complete admission process online, which also includes the online verification of the certificates.”
In the letter, she also directed the colleges to constitute a “strong” admission team for the process.
“A team of reasonable number of student volunteers along with a Faculty Mentor be formed. The student volunteers must remain available during the time of admission to answer any related query pertaining to the admissions in the college,” the letter said.
DU had implemented the first phase of 10 per cent expansion in EWS (Economically Weaker Section) seats in 2019-20 and the remaining 15 per cent enhancement will be completed in 2020-21 academic session, according to the letter.
