No long queues, DU admissions to go online

Delhi University aspirants needn’t run around or even be in the city to apply to colleges of their choice this summer. What’s more, an SMS will tell them which colleges they have made it to. Mallica Joshi reports.

Delhi University aspirants needn’t run around or even be in the city to apply to colleges of their choice this summer. What’s more, an SMS will tell them which colleges they have made it to.


If DU accepts the recommendations of its high-powered panel for changes in the admission system, the application process will go online and be outsourced to an experienced firm.

“Of the firms we have spoken to so far, some have offered to send an SMS to students about colleges after the cut-off list is released,” said committee chairperson Deepak Malhotra.

“We have recommended formation of 15 facilitation centres in colleges for students who have problems filling forms,” Malhotra said. DU vice-chancellor Dinesh Singh said, “The panel members have thought about it. The DU administration will also apply its mind and come to a final decision.”
