With a thought of advancement on the previous admission methodology, Delhi University (DU) plans to make the entire admission process for the academic session 2020-2021 online. The pre-admission processes and the portal are likely to start from first week of April.
Earlier for the academic batch 2019-2020 only the form filling, course selection, fee submission, and the availability of the University admission form were online. But, after the declaration of the cut-offs the students had to go to their chosen colleges for document submission, stand in long queues and fill several forms to get admitted. However, this time DU plans to omit all the unnecessary trouble by making the entire process tech friendly and online.
An Admission Committee headed by Rajiv Gupta, Chairman, Dean Student’s Welfare (DSW), and 15 other members has been created. Besides this, this time a separate ‘Dean of Admissions’ headed by Shobha Bagai has also been set up by the University.
Regarding the process, a DU official said to The Indian Express that, “The process will provide relief to both students and teachers students come from various parts of the country and abroad, parents and students face a lot of issues during admissions. Thus, making admissions online, the students will be able to take admissions without running from pillar to post,” The idea regarding the same was proposed in a recent meeting of the admissions committee.
The official further told that after the declaration of the cut-offs students will be required to select a college, submit scanned copies of their documents pay an online fees, after which they will be provided with a month to visit the college for getting their documents verified. Although the same official also informed that the the proposal will be submitted and presented in the Academic Council meeting for further suggestions and only after that its implementation can be confirmed.
