Delhi University is setting a trend by going digital and how! After the news broke out that admissions this year are likely to go completely online, the varsity is now set to issue admit cards to students online too!

The ‘e-Admit Cards’ as they are being called, is a test for the university’s capability to go paperless with its immensely important examination functions. After a number of speculations and cynicism, our insiders tell us, a University notice will soon be made public on the DU website, directing all the colleges to maintain a digital record of students examination details and issue the hall tickets by 1 May 2016.

As confirmed by the Examination Committee of University of Delhi, to our team, this change is aimed at simplifying the process of obtaining the admit cards by students, as it is a cause of major commotion and chaos each year.

Talking about this change of strategy, a University Examination board member, on condition of anonymity, told us, “ As per the new guidelines, all colleges will have to upload admit cards for each department on their respective websites. On the day of the first examination, students would be required to produce the printed version of the admit card, which would then be duly attested with the respective college stamps.”

According to the proposed scheme, admit cards of out-stationed students won’t be issued to any other student offline from this year on. The idea however has garnered a mix response from both students and faculty alike. A second year student from a reputed North Campus college shared his take on the e-admit cards and said, “ Is the online annoyance not enough during checking of results that they now want to test our patience by introducing online admit cards too? They should first be well equipped and then introduce such measures.” Some other students are rejoicing the move as they feel they won’t have to stand in long queues in this summer heat.

The proposal is thus a litmus test for the varsity and colleges, which have had a record of server crashes and huge site traffic in the past and an opportunity to regain the confidence of students in its digital capability!
