I belong to the OBC category. How can I register for courses in different colleges?


You can register through the Common Pre-Admission Form available at the 15 designated information centers of Delhi University from June 2 to June 16.

I belong to the OBC category of Haryana. Can I apply to colleges of Delhi University under the OBC quota?

Yes, if your caste is on the OBC list issued by the Centre.

How do I know whether I’ve secured admission in a particular college after registering through the Common Pre-Admission Form?

A separate cut-off list for OBC will be put up along with the cut-off list for the general category. If your percentage meets the requirement of that particular course and college, then you can seek admission there within the stipulated period.

Which documents are required for admission?

The documents required are: a) Original Class X certificate, b) Original Class X marksheet, c) Original Class XII certificate/provisional certificate including character certificate, d) Original Class XII marksheet, e) Original OBC certificate mentioning that the candidate does not belong to the creamy layer, f) Declaration/undertaking for the OBC candidate, g) Migration certificate (if the candidate is coming from a state other than Delhi)

I belong to the OBC category. If I meet the cut-off of the general category, then can I seek admission through this category as well?

Even if you have applied under the OBC quota, you can seek admission under the general category. But that is only if you are covered under the cut-off for the general category.

I am a 1st year student in SOL (correspondence). Can I avail the benefits of the OBC quota and take fresh admission as a 1st year student in another course offered by a regular college?

It is advisable that you continue studying in SOL for the first year. After your results are declared, you can migrate to any regular college in the second year. Don’t waste your time studying in first year all over again.
