Delhi University’s special admission drive to fill up vacant reserved seats

Officials said some colleges still have seats in the reserved categories, including SC, ST, OBC, Person with Disability (PwD), Children/Widows of Armed Forces, sports and extracurricular activities (ECA).

Delhi University will conduct a special admission drive for applicants under the reserved categories and bring out two more cutoffs for about 1,500 seats.

Officials said some colleges still have seats in the reserved categories, including SC, ST, OBC, Person with Disability (PwD), Children/Widows of Armed Forces, sports and extracurricular activities (ECA).

“There are some seats left in the reserved categories so we are running a special drive to make sure students are admitted on these seats,” said a university official.

The cutoff list for the special category will be out on August 3 and August 7.

But this opportunity will only be available for applicants who are already registered with the university and filled the online registration forms.

“Under this drive only such candidates would be considered for admission who are registered with the University of Delhi, but are not admitted in any college irrespective of category under any cut-off list. It is to be noted that no fresh registrations shall be allowed in this special drive,” said Tarun Das, DU registrar.

Registered applicants will also be allowed to make corrections related to the category change from unreserved to any other category which they belong to.

“Corrections related to category changes are allowed from UR to SC/ST/OBC /PWD /KM/CW subject to verification of original certificates,” Das said in a statement.

Admission committee chairman M K Pandit said, “The idea is to get those students into the university net who are registered but couldn’t seek admission for minor mistakes/choices they made at the time of filling an application.”

Applicants can make corrections by visiting room number 1 at the conference centre in North Campus with their relevant certificates from Monday till Wednesday.

“The applicants must bring their registration form and original/copies of relevant certificates. No further requests of correction will be accepted after these dates,” an official said.

For sports category applicants not admitted in any college, request for modification in colleges or course in sports or ECA admission will be allowed.

DU started the academic session from July 20 and released the seventh cutoff for all categories on July 26.
