With Delhi University forms available both online and over-the-counter, many aspirants have submitted multiple applications this year.
In fact, some admission-seekers have applied as many as nine times, much to the surprise of DU officials. The university will allow such candidates to use any of the registration numbers (provided after submission of application) to take admission in a college.
“We have received multiple forms from several candidates. Some students have filled forms five times. Sometimes, students fill the offline as well as online forms just to be sure. In such a case, a student can use any of the registration numbers to get admission in a college. But there is no chance of multiple admissions as we have directed all colleges to take original educational certificates of every student at the time of admission,” said Gurpreet Singh Tuteja, deputy dean students’ welfare.
The university does not disqualify any student for filling multiple registration forms.
“Once the admission is done and the student needs the original certificate for other purposes then the student will have to submit an application to the college asking for the original certificate citing the reason,” Tuteja said.
Colleges otherwise return the original certificates a few months after the admission. If students want to take admission in another college after subsequent cut-offs, then they have to withdraw the previous admission by giving an application.
“The student needs to apply for withdrawal of admission and return of original certificates. After that the student can seek fresh admission in another college,” he said.
