OBC Aspirants Face The Brunt Of New Norms In Delhi University | DU Admission 2018

OBC aspirants face the brunt of the new norm in Delhi University

With changes in the norms for students seeking admission under the Other Backward Class (OBC) category at the Delhi University (DU), students faced difficulties on the first two days of the admission process. This year, the university has asked the aspirants to produce certificates issued only after March 31, 2018.

Most of the aspirants, who turned up for admission, were left clueless when they were asked to produce recent certificates given to them by the authorities. “I did not know that the norm has changed for the OBC certificate. I have an old certificate with me and now I will have to go back to my hometown in Himachal Pradesh and get it renewed,” said Sandhi Soni, an aspirant at the Kirori Mal College (KMC).

Until last year, the aspirants were allowed to submit certificates that were issued up to a year ago. “Many students had not read the rules properly and were confused when we did not accept their documents,” said an admission officer at the Hansraj College.

However, later in the day university issued a notification saying that the colleges can provisionally admit the students. “The students have been asked to submit a fresh certificate within the next two weeks now,” said an official at Dyal Singh College.

Several colleges objected to the change in the norms ahead of the admission session citing that it could create “chaos” and “confusion”. “We protested the change. It’s not easy to get a new certificate done in this short a span of time. The administration should understand how the government offices work. They should at least allow the students to submit certificates issued earlier this year,” said a principal of a college at the North Campus.

The Delhi University reserves 27 per cent seats for the OBC applicants (non-creamy layer, central list). Colleges have to ensure that a student’s caste is included in the OBC central list as well as the list notified by the Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment.
