With the national capital celebrating Eid today, Delhi University colleges will not be conducting their admission procedures. The process will resume on Tuesday.

After the cutoff lists are released, eligible students visit different colleges to get their documents verified, their best four score confirmed, and admission approved. The first cutoff list for this year was released on Saturday, and students have until Wednesday to get seats confirmed in the 60 odd DU colleges, if they have cleared the cutoff requirements.

However, with Eid falling on Monday, this procedure will be temporarily paused to be resumed on Tuesday.

“Even though admissions under the first cutoff list will be done only till Wednesday, applicants will have until 12 noon on Thursday to pay their admission fees,” said Gurpreet Singh Tuteja, the deputy dean of student welfare.

The long weekend has caused some worries for outstation students, as they have had to stay two more days in the city and pay for accommodation. “We had first considered coming to Delhi on Tuesday, so that we would not be stuck in the holiday period in between. But then we were worried; what if something goes wrong, and we need more than just two days for admission. That is why we came to Delhi on Saturday itself (sic),” said Ishara Ahmed, the mother of a BCom aspirant from Karnataka.
