Online registration for admissions in Delhi University will be free for students from backward communities, while those under general category will be charged an amount of Rs. 50.
"Online registration will cost Rs. 50 for general and OBC students. There will be no fee for SC/ST and physically handicapped category students," Dean of Students' Welfare J M Khurana said.
Students can pay the amount through credit or debit cards, he said.
The cost for online registration has been brought down from Rs. 100 to Rs. 50. Until last year students from SC/ST/PH categories could not register online.
Khurana said the decision was made to make admission process easier for students, especially those coming from out-station.
For those who want to fill the form manually, Khurana said the registration fees will be Rs. 100 for general and OBC students and Rs. 50 for SC/ST/PH students.
"There will two types of OMR forms. One for students under general and OBC categories and second for SC/ST/PH students. Applicants have to only choose their courses in the forms," Khurana said.
This time there will be four additional information required to be filled by students. Information about family income, mobile number, the kind of schooling and area of the school will also have to be filled in the OMR form.
"This additional information help us to create a data about students from outstation," Khurana said, adding that SMS alerts will also be sent to students at the time of admission.
