A student association Fraternity movement demanded immediate lay off of unfair fees being charged by the Delhi University from the OBC students for DU admission forms. The student association is also planning for a mass mailing campaign by writing emails to Delhi University’s admission help desk. Moreover, the emails will be forwarded to the admission council to layoff the extra fees charged on the OBC category. The University made the admission form fees of the OBC category and non-creamy layer candidates equivalent to that of unreserved students.
The Fraternity movement association said that the University should layoff the unjust fees being charged for admission from the previous years. It further stated that the present undergraduate and postgraduate admission fees are unfair to OBC students. The UG registration fee for PWD, EWS, ST, and SC applicants is Rs 100 whereas the fee for OBC applicants is Rs.250 which is equal to that of the unreserved category. The same injustice is done for filling up of PG forms. Where the fees for reserved category students stands Rs 300, the OBC students are asked to pay Rs. 750 which is the same as for the unreserved category.
The Fraternity movement further asserted that the income status of both OBC (NC) and EWS stands the same for obtaining a reservation. Furthermore, the OBC reservation is meant not just to uplift the economically backward but also encourage to marginalized and socially backward communities.
So far more than 1 lakh students have registered themselves on the University’s portal for DU admissions 2020. The admission portal for Delhi University admission 2020 went live on 20th June 2020 and will remain open till 4th July 2020. The results of CBSE board class 12th are not yet announced.
It is assumed that the Delhi University will reopen the admission portal for uploading the CBSE class 12th mark sheets. The Delhi University has not announced anything regarding the release of the cutoff list as yet. For entrance based admissions, the NTA will soon release the examination procedure. Delhi University has trained 22 student volunteers to attend queries related to the admission process. Students facing any sort of difficulty can either mail their queries on the email ID or can call on the helpline number provided by DU.
