Undergraduate Admissions


In their recent memorandum to the Executive Council, Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) put forth a demand for the increment of 10% seats in all courses. Wandering over the possibilities, if they are feasible on the ground or is this just a demand to be said on paper?

In a memorandum asking for the reopening of campus, Akhil Bhartiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) included a demand to increase seats for all courses by 10%. With more and more students applying at the university every year, such a demand might look like a problem solver. But this ajooba can’t be done just like that (finger snapping). We wondered if this could really be possible, and there are various odds standing in the way of the expansion of DU.  

Year after year, the cut-offs of the University of Delhi have been soaring high. This year as well 4,38,696 students have applied for the Undergraduate courses. Last year, in 2020 this number stood at 3,53,919. In the wake of a 20% increase in applicants, this year and a significant rise in this number each year might make this prospect appear wonderful. But after taking a closer look at the plethora of problems that the University has hurled upon itself it might appear as a not-so-wonderful idea. 

As we know since last year, some colleges of the University have been struggling with a financial crisis. Lack of funds, non-payment of salaries, and problems faced by Ad-hoc teachers form the avalanche of problems that colleges have been facing lately. The introduction of new seats would put more pressure on the existing funds and infrastructure. This increment would also mean a change in the faculty and student ratio. According to a report in July, out of 1076 sanctioned posts, 846 teaching posts were lying vacant.

After the introduction of the EWS quota back in 2019, the varsity had various seats lying vacant in the category. Even in 2020, the EWS category had more vacant seats than in 2019. As reported by the Times of India, despite special drives and several cut-offs about 5.6% of seats of the EWS quota were still vacant. When DU hasn’t been able to work its way around an increment of seats within a quota, how will it be feasible for the entire university? Shouldn’t our first focus of attention be on filling all the seats in the existing seat count? About 1.5% of seats were left vacant under the OBC quota in 2020, 0.6% were vacant seats under the SC quota and even the ST seats saw the most vacancy in the year 2020.  

Already under the plethora of problems, our beloved Delhi University has also implemented the New Education Policy starting from the year 2022. No talks around extra funds for the same have begun and teacher’s resistance against it continues. Under the Four Year Undergraduate Programme (FYUP), students will have the choice of studying at the university for the fourth year as well, irrespective of what number of students who opt for it, it will lay force on the existing resources. The varsity will have to be prepared to host students for one more year. 

Professor Abha Habib, the Treasurer of DUTA said in a conversation with DU Beat, 

“It is an insignificant demand, a long and due process is followed after sanctions from various committees and UGC. Instead of putting more load on the same University, more attention should be laid on state universities. Why should students be forced to move out of their states for education, premier institutes should be established within states or the existing ones should be improved. There is no scope for expansion in various colleges.” 

Outstation students have to spend a lot on travel and stay for being in Delhi University. Costly PGs and barely cooked food are complementaries to the problems of staying outside your city or state. To understand such a plight DU Beat talked to a parent, Monika Sethi, mother of Ananya Sethi who is a second-year student. 

“ Kids from tier-1 cities get to study in their own state but people from Uttar Pradesh and other states have to send their kids outside because of the dearth of opportunities here. The situation then becomes like there are two households to be taken care of including all the travel costs.” 

Just to accommodate the growing number of students, the existing quality of education (which in itself consists of loads of unsolved problems) can’t be compromised. A lot of questions will have to be answered and a lot more issues to be resolved before the University can even think about the increment of seats.

As the admission season is approaching and with the 12th standard board results declared, lives of Delhi University aspirants will revolve around the cut offs and the modalities of the admission process. While the major part of the admission procedure remains consistent and central, students applying under Sikh Minority quota have to go through some additional formalities in order to apply under the minority quota, being offered at several colleges of Delhi University which are managed by Delhi Sikh Gurudwara Management Committee (DSGMC).

Presently there are four colleges in Delhi University that offers reservation to students belonging to the sikh minority namely Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur Khalsa College, Sri Guru Gobind Singh College of Commerce, Sri Guru Nanak Dev Khalsa and Mata Sundri College for Women. These colleges were established and/or are maintained by the Delhi Sikh Gurudwara Management Committee, a statutory body, constituted under an Act of Parliament and were given minority status with 50 per cent quota in 2011.

Given below are the guidelines for admission under the ‘Sikh Minority Quota’

  • Applicants are supposed to have Sikh Minority Certificate made from the office of Delhi Sikh Gurudwara Management Committee (DSGMC).
  • Once that is done, applicants are supposed to first register themselves for undergraduate admissions at the main website of Delhi University.
  • After getting the confirmation reciept, it is necessary to register yourself at the Khalsa Colleges portal for admissions under the Sikh Minority quota.
  • When the cutoffs are declared, applicants are supposed to carry their Sikh Minority Certificate as well as the receipt of the aforementioned registrations along with the other regular documents.

Here is the website of Khalsa Colleges common registration : http://dukhalsacolleges.com/

If you are still confused of what all documents you would need for the admissions, you can check the lists of documents required here

Meanwhile, this is only applicable for students who wish to claim the minority quota. For general students who wish to apply to these colleges can do so by just filling the common admission form of the University.

The first day of admissions at Delhi University started on a slow note across campuses. With this being the first year of DU undergraduate admissions going online, there was some understandable confusion about the procedure to be followed post the release of the first cut-off list. Unlike previous years when the entire process had to be done at the colleges, from the forms to the final applications, this year the aspirants were required to first log on to the UG admissions portal and generate the college specific form, based on whichever college/course they were eligible for. The only on-grounds element was the verification of the documents. A few unaware aspirants and their hassled parents were seen on college campuses in the morning, being informed about the procedure by college volunteers.

The chaos was compounded by the DU UG portal which was, as informed by several concerned aspirants, non-functional. “DU needs to take care of the technical aspects of such a large-scale admission process. When they announce something on the university website, we expect them to abide by it,” said a hassled outstation aspirant to our journalist in Lady Shri Ram College for Women.

Not being able to generate the form online and confused about the procedure, the number of aspirants at colleges was definitely lower than expected, especially for certain South Campus colleges like Kamala Nehru College.

The Delhi University Teachers’ Association (DUTA) had already expressed its non-cooperation with the admission process, which might have led to more issues. Teachers of several colleges were seen giving dharnas on campuses. Professor Dubey from Moti Lal Nehru College said, “We are not cooperating with the admissions process but at the same time, we’re not blocking it if the college authorities decide to go on with it with the help of the non-teaching staff… The point of our protests is to let parents and aspirants know that the recent UGC amendment doesn’t just affect teachers but also the quality of education in the university.”

After a lot of hustle and bustle, The University of Delhi has begun its much anticipated admissions to Undergraduate Courses via complete online registration for the session 2016-17 today. With the admissions going completely online this year, the varsity has introduced some crucial changes to the admission procedure which must be kept in mind by all the hopeful candidates. Read along as we try to collate all the important information for you about this admission season.

I. The registration process 

Every DU aspirant is required to register online on the DU UG Admissions Portal in order to be eligible for admission to various DU colleges and courses. Online registration details are available on the following UG admission portal: http://ug.du.ac.in

In order to not miss out on any crucial dates and deadlines, take a look at the important dates that you must be well versed with, in the table below:

A. Important dates: 

Online registrations begin

1 June 2016

Closing date for online registrations

19 June 2016

Release of first-cut off list

27 June 2016

Commencement of classes

20 July 2016

Closing date of admissions

16 August 2016

B. Online registration fee for admission to UG Courses (2016-17) 

The registration fee for the UG form is to be paid online. It is significant to note that a candidate’s application submission process shall be completed only after payment of the online registration fee. The fee structure for online registration for different categories are as given below:

Registration fee for UR/OBC

Rs. 100 (Non-refundable)

Registration fee for SC/ST/PwD Rs. 50 (Non-refundable)
Registration fee for Sports/ECA

Rs. 100 (Additional, Non-refundable)

After payment of the online registration fee, corrections, additions, deletions etc. in any manner shall not be allowed in the registration form. The candidates are, therefore, advised to fill their forms carefully. Candidates can fill as many Course Choices as they want. There will be no extra fee being charged for the same.

C. Important documents to keep handy during online registration 

In the Mandatory upload section, the applicant has to upload the following items:

a) Passport size photograph of the applicant. The specification of the passport size photo is same as that used in the Indian Passport.

b) Scanned signature of the applicant

c) Self attested copy of Class X Board Certificate (for the date of birth)

d) Self attested Class XII Marks-Sheet, if result is announced. (In case Mark-Sheet is not issued by the Board then the self attested copy of the Mark-Sheet downloaded from the respective boards’ website should be uploaded).

e) Self attested copy of SC/ST/OBC/PwD/KM/CW Certificate, if applicable.

f) Self attested copy of income certificate (for OBC non-creamy layer) Certificate, if applicable.

g) Self attested copy of Sport Certificate(s) for last three years, if applicable.

h) Self attested copy of Extra Curricular Activities Certificate(s), if applicable.

The University will accept self-attested copies of documents / papers provided by the students. The varsity has made it clear that if any false attestation / falsified records are detected, the student will be debarred from attending any course in the University / or its Colleges for next five years and in addition, a criminal case under relevant sections of IPC will be instituted against him/her. 

III. Eligibility criteria for various courses:

The most important question that arises while taking admission in DU is the confusion and ambiguity of whether a student is actually eligible for the course of his/her choice. The university thus, like each year, has come up with a comprehensive list of eligibility criteria for various courses across the three streams of Arts, Commerce and Science.

You can take a look at the UG Bulletin of Information for more insight about the eligibility criteria here.  

III. The Admission Process after release of first cut-off

An aspiring DU student must keep a regular check on the university website and the website(s) of the college(s) of the candidate’s choice. As per the varsity, the First Cut-Off list will be released on 27th June, 2016, therefore, a candidate must keep a tab on the DU website around the same date.

It must be kept in mind that the announcement of cut-off lists for all courses/categories (UR/OBC/SC/ST/PwD/KM) will be made through University website. Once the cut-off list is released, the candidates who meet the requisite cut-off will have to login to the UG admission portal and select the college/course where the candidate wishes to take admission and check whether he or she meets the desired cut-off criterion.

Once the candidate meets the cut-off and the rest of the criteria for the specific course he/she wants to pursue, the aspirant will have to take the print out of the admission form and together with the list of documents (as mentioned above) proceed to the respective college for verification of mark sheet, calculation of cut-off percentage depending on the course and verification of other documents. The schedule for verification of documents in the colleges is as given below:
