DU recieves 1.71 lakh registrations in all categories

Delhi University admission helpdesks are replete with queries about scanned documents the varsity has asked students to upload while filing the online registration form for undergrad seats.

Unlike last year, the university centralised registration process has become fully online. DU has scrapped offline registration this year.

Student queries are generally regarding extra-curricular activities (ECA) and sports certificates, and income certificates for Other Backward Classes (OBC) non-creamy layer students, a university official said. 

It is for the first time that the university has asked applicants to upload these documents on the admission portal at the time of registration.

DU has decided to be little lenient with the norms on document requirements. “Many sports/ECA quota applicants say their certificates do not have registration numbers. In that case, we ask the students to fill in ‘XXXXX’ in the registration number column,” the DU official said.

Some state sport associations, for instance, do not put registration numbers on the certificates it issues.

The university has also gone little easy with the requirement for income certificates. Students are being asked to upload income tax returns of their parents in case they do not have a certificate issued by the district collector’s office.

According to the DU official, a more careful scrutiny will happen at the time of college enrolment. Students who register with the university are eligible for admission if they meet the cut-off criteria set by colleges.

The first cut-off list will be announced on June 27 and unlike the previous year, the university will release only five cut-off lists.

Meanwhile, DU on Monday said it has received 1,71,191 registrations: 80,522 paid applications, 56,572 ‘General’ category students, 9,097 OBC non-creamy layer applicants, 12,384 Scheduled Castes applicants, 2,067 Scheduled Tribe applicants and 404 disabled students.

Out of the paid applicants the university has received, 39,505 are males, 41,014 are females and 5 are from the third gender, according to the varsity.
