The Delhi University (DU) is likely to release its first cut-off list by the end of this month as the Delhi High Court directed the university to extend its registration date to 22 June, officials said.
The Delhi University’s online registration process had commenced on 30 May and was supposed to end on 14 June at 11.59 pm. It was to release the first cut-off list on 20 June.
“We will have to study the order and make changes to the portal and other systems in place. The first cut-off was to be released on 22 June 22 but now it will most likely come out by 29 or 30 June. This would mean that the admission process will be delayed by 10 days,” an official said. Over 3.40 lakh students had registered on the varsity portal till 11.44 pm on Friday and 2,38,962 had made payments.
Rasal Singh, a member of standing committee on admissions, said there should be an admission branch that must take opinions from all the stakeholders while finalising admission norms and should work through the year. He said things are most likely to be clear by Saturday. The High Court directed Delhi University and the University Grants Commission (UGC) to allow students to apply for admission to undergraduate (UG) courses at the varsity for the current academic session based on the eligibility criteria of 2018-19.
A bench of justices Anu Malhotra and Talwant Singh extended the deadline from June 14 to June 22 for students to apply for the undergraduate courses in DU.
