Digital Desk, New Delhi. Last chance is left to apply for admission in Delhi University on the basis of specific cut off. This admission process, which was started on the basis of special cutoff, will end on Wednesday midnight. This admission process has been started from Tuesday under the special cutoff. However, the special cutoff is also quite high like the earlier cutoff. The special cutoff also asks for around 96 to 99 per cent marks in most of the courses.
It is worth noting that Delhi University has 70,000 seats for undergraduate courses. Delhi University has so far released three cut-off lists for admission to these 70,000 seats. A total of 1,70,186 students have applied for admission on the basis of all the three cut-offs so far. Out of these, 58,000 students have got admission in various colleges of Delhi University. This admission process is for those students who were eligible to take admission on the basis of 1st, 2nd, 3rd cut off but could not take admission due to any reason.
According to the Registrar of Delhi University, Vikas Gupta, on the basis of the special cut off list issued by the University, applications can be made till the midnight of 27 October for admission. According to the registrar, various colleges will approve the eligible applications for admission by October 28. Fees can be paid till October 29. Delhi University has fixed 98.25 per cent for Economics, 98.75 for B.Com Honors and 98.25 per cent for History in the special cut off list. It is worth noting that in the special cut off list, there is more opportunity for the reserved category students as compared to the general category.
Meanwhile, Delhi University Teachers Association (DUTA) has lodged a strong objection to the new rules to be adopted for the recruitment of Assistant Professors. Delhi University Teachers Association believes that 4000 teachers working in the university will become unemployed and temporary teachers due to the new recruitment process to be adopted by the university. A meeting of the Executive Council of the University is to be held on 29 October in Delhi University. DUTA has registered its objection to some agenda provisions fixed for this meeting. DUTA President Rajib Ray, through a letter to the Vice Chancellor of Delhi University, Professor Yogesh Singh, has informed that DUTA takes seriously the agenda item 5.01 of the meeting. The proposed recommendations (Annexure 5.01) for screening and/or shortlisting criteria for direct recruitment of Assistant Professors in University Departments and/or Colleges are unacceptable. DUTA has demanded their immediate return.
