Reserved category candidates don't require attested marksheets

Students applying in Delhi University in reserved category — Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes — have an option of not producing attested copy of the marksheet during submission of admission forms.

DU has made this arrangement for four days — June 15 to 18. A senior DU official said the move to restrict it to four days was to keep a check on forged documents.

“There have been instances where students tried to forge their mark sheets since they had enough time in hand,” said the official. “Due to this we have limited the number of days for submitting self-attested admission forms.”

The change in admission provision of this category came after students said they were unable to get their internet copy of the marksheet attested by their state resident commissioner in Delhi.

“Some states declare results late. Most educational boards also take at least a week to dispatch marksheets to students of their affiliated schools,” the official said.

“Many students don’t bring the original marksheet when they reach here. With only the option of getting an internet copy of the mark sheet, students have to get it attested here,” said the official.

According to students, the resident commissioner is out of reach on most days or even refuses to verify their mark sheets. Admissions of SC and ST students are decided on the basis of merit and not cut-off.
