The online registrations in Delhi University have eased the admission process for applicants but uploading of documents has put many in a fix. Many aspirants said they were unsure about which document to upload.

A few aspirants accidentally uploaded birth certificates as a proof of birth when the university has asked for the class 10 pass certificate.

“I have uploaded the birth certificate issued by the municipal corporation. I do not know what to do. I think I will have to fill a new form,” said Kirti Singh, an aspirant. She had come to attend the Open Day with her mother to clarify her query.

The Open Day was held at Sri Venkateswara College on Tuesday. For the next two days, the Open House is at Zakir Hussain College.

This time the university has made uploading of certain documents mandatory. Self-attested copies of class 10 board certificate, class 12 mark sheets, reserved category certificate and income certificate for the OBC non-creamy layer have to be submitted.

“I just have a class 10 mark sheet and no board certificate. I am in a fix in what to do. I am trying to find out about this certificate from my school,” said Vidhi Tiwari, a resident of south Delhi.

University officials said a student must fill a fresh form if they have made any error or uploaded the wrong document.

The income certificate for OBC non-creamy layer (NCL) is also causing concern. “I have the OBC certificate of 2014. I have been told a fresh certificate would require time. Will I be able to apply?,” said Pawan Shokeen of Pitampura.

The university official said this should not be a cause for worry for students.
