DU admissions: The admission process for graduation in DU is almost over. But UG seats in several classes are still available in many domains. At the same time, more seats are vacant in SC, ST, OBC, and EWS categories. DU’s College Prof. Balaram Pani says that a maximum of 6 percent of seats is vacant in the EWS category.
It may be noted that last year, 25 percent of seats have been increased to give 10 percent reservations in the EWS category. But UG seats in the EWS category have not been filled. At the same time, colleges outside the North Campus have fewer enrollments in the EWS category. 5 percent of seats are vacant in the SC category, 3 percent in ST class, 6 percent in the EWS category, and 1.5 percent in the OBC category.
DU had run a special drive to fill reserved class seats
In DU, reserved class seats remain vacant every year. This time SC, ST, OBC class seats are less vacant than expected, but the UG seats of EWS class are more vacant. DU had run a special drive to fill reserved class seats. The seats in the special drive are not full and the seats are still empty.
Hansraj Suman, president of SC, ST, OBC Teachers Forum in DU, says that the main reason for the vacancy of seats is not the reduction in cutoff by colleges. More than 10 thousand students applied in the OBC category. The seats in the reserved class are vacant due to the cutoff. In Aurobindo College, 40 seats are vacant in EWS. The same situation is for reserved class subjects. DU should instruct colleges to reduce cutoff.
How many seats are vacant in DU colleges?
Atmaram Sanatan Dharma College also has the highest number of 50 percent vacancies in the reserved category. Similarly, seats in other colleges are also vacant. DU’s Maharaja Agrasen College also has 90 seats. Out of which only 47 seats are admitted. While Rajdhani College has 101 seats and has admission for 74 seats. Ramanujan College has 116 seats. Out of which, 68 percent of seats are vacant. At the same time, out of 169 seats in Ramjas, 50 seats of EWS are reported to be vacant.
Teachers from other colleges, including college Vocational Studies, have written to DU to start the process of filling these seats again in the event of a large number of seats in the reserved category including EWS. DU can then issue notifications to fill the vacant seats. Dr. Kumar Ashutosh, the in-charge teacher of the College of Vocational Studies, has written a letter to the Acting Vice-Chancellor. In which it is said that a large number of seats in the category are vacant. Therefore, special drives will also be run for EWS on the lines of SC, ST, OBC.
