Delhi University stated on December 21 that it will add five new seats to courses this year. But, the varsity has not issued any directions to colleges yet. On the other hand, DU admission 2020 is going to end on December 31.
The registrar signed a notification in which it was stated that college principals will choose at least 5 students over the allotted number of seats. Out of the admitted students, Delhi University will suggest at least 2 names. The varsity will grant 10 percent relaxation to those five students.
DU COLLEGES ARE WAITING FOR THE DIRECTIONS
Some colleges are waiting for Delhi University to issue the directions. On the other hand, some DU colleges have passed the statement to their governing bodies. They asked about the need of issuing that statement.
DELHI UNIVERSITY IS CONDUCTING AN ACTIVITY SIMILAR TO THE MANAGEMENT QUOTA
Some DU colleges said that Principals do not have the right to take these decisions. However, a principal of one of the DU colleges said that the varsity is conducting an activity similar to the management quota of private colleges. He is very disappointed in this decision and said that Delhi University used the situation of COVID-19 as a crutch which is utterly shameful.
