DU gears up for offline admission to 52 UG courses

Online registration began last week

From setting up of special admission desks for northeastern students to ensuring barrier-free access for disabled students, the Delhi University has issued a list of instruction to varsity-affiliated colleges where offline registrations begin on Friday for 54,000 seats in 52 undergraduate courses.

Delhi University has asked all its nine admission information centres – colleges designated for sale of offline forms – to set up at least four windows for sale and acceptance of forms.

DU website opened for registration on May 28 and already 2.17 lakh students have filled in forms online for admission. But many still prefer to fill in and submit forms in person.

“In case of unexpected rush, more counters will be set up. Help desks will be set up for facilitation of SC/ST students and northeastern students. Nodal officers for northeastern students in colleges have been instructed to be present in the respective colleges,” Joint Dean of Students’ Welfare, Malay Neerav, said.

Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur Khalsa College principal Jaswinder Singh told Deccan Herald that his colleges has already geared up to handle the admission rush.

Khalsa is the only information centre in North Campus College in North Campus where forms will be sold. The college came as the latest addition to the list of information centres.

“We will be happy to welcome large number of students who are planning to visit our college. To handle the rush, we will have reasonable number of form distribution centres, student counselling rooms and places where students can sit and fill their forms,” said Singh.

Most colleges are not expecting a huge rush on account of students already registering for admissions online. Singh said only students who required ‘additional information’ about admissions would be making a beeline to these centres.

Deputy Dean Student Welfare, G S Tuteja said the varsity has already sent list of guideline to the information centres.

“We already have help desks to assist students. These help desks are being manned by student volunteers and a senior teacher,” Tuteja said.

Meanwhile, the DU’s Equal Opportunity Cell has also issued detailed instructions for colleges, asking them to provide barrier-free access to admission information centres.

“This year, we are practising a policy of inclusivity, so no special measures have been put in place, but students who come to the cell will be assisted by our volunteers. Colleges have already been sent a detailed list of guidelines to follow,” said Bipin Tiwari, officer on special duty, Equal Opportunity Cell.

Colleges have been asked to keep a ‘dedicated accessible space’ including a help desk for admissions.

Besides ensuring that admissions are conducted on the ground floor and a wheelchair is provided for, EOC has requested every college to depute at least two teachers as nodal person for handling the grievances of students.

The registration centres where offline forms will be accepted are Atma Ram Sanatan Dharm College, Dyal Singh College, Gargi College, Maharaja Agrasen College, PG DAV College, Rajdhani College, Shyam Singh College, Sri Guru Gobind Singh College of Commerce and Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur Khalsa College.
