Nearly half of the undergraduate seats in Delhi University colleges were filled at the end of admission under the second cutoff on Tuesday.

Many popular colleges such as Lady Shri Ram, Miranda House, Kirori Mal College, Daulat Ram College and Ramjas College have already filled more than half of their seats.

But there are still around 28,000 seats up for grabs in DU colleges under the next cutoff lists. The third cutoff list will be announced on July 7 and admissions under the list will continue till July 10.

“We have approved admissions for 28,222 seats across colleges. Different colleges have different numbers of seats filled but the on-campus colleges have filled most of their seats,” said a university official.

The official said the fee payment process was still on and 23,317 applicants completed the process. “Applicants can complete the fee payment by Wednesday noon. Admissions of those who are not able to pay fee by then will be cancelled. But a call on that will be taken tomorrow,” the official said.

Hindu College has already approved nearly 800 admissions against their 752 seats. “In some courses we have had more admissions. In the third list we are likely to close admissions for honours courses in Economics, BCom, Political Science, History and Sanskrit,” a member of the admission committee said.

Shri Ram College of Commerce, which had closed admission to Economic (hons) for the general category after the first cutoff, will close to admission to BCom (hons) as well after the second cutoff.

SRCC has a total 624 seats in the two undergraduate courses that it offers.

“We have filled general and OBC seats for both the courses. There is possibility of a slight dip in the cutoff for reserved seats,” said RP Rustagi, officiating principal.

At LSR, 525 seats have been filled out of the total 783 seats. Officiating principal of KMC Dinesh Khattar said they had filled over 50% of their total seats. “654 out of the 1,179 seats have been filled,” he said.
