NEW DELHI: From this year, Delhi University aspirants will not be able to block seats at different colleges simultaneously. The admission and withdrawal procedures have been changed.

After the cutoffs are declared, students need not go directly to the college that they have qualified for. First, the students will have to log on to a DU portal and then select the course and the college.

Thereafter, an admission slip of the college selected is generated. The students can take this slip and documents to get admission to the college. The documents include original mark sheets, pass certificates.

Students will get three days to take admission to the colleges after the cutoff is declared. For instance, the first cutoff is declared on June 27 and the students can take admission on its basis till June 29.

“The college will retain the certificates of the approved candidate in order to avoid multiple admissions. The certificates will remain with the colleges during admission to make admission smooth for colleges. Earlier, students blocked multiple seats and withdrew their applications later,” said a senior university official.

The college authorities will approve the admission on the UG admission portal.

Unlike previous years, students will not have to stand in queue to pay fees. The selected candidate can pay online.

In case, candidates want to take admission to another college, they cannot go directly to the college. First, the students will have to go to the college where they got admitted and submit an application for withdrawal.

Only after the college has approved the withdrawal and marked the same in the UG portal, the student can select another college. However, the college will have to return the documents promptly.

Such procedures have been put in place as DU colleges will release only five cutoff lists this time.

The number of registered applicants reached 1,54,026 by 6pm Sunday.

Out of which, 68,316 applicants have finished registration. The university is holding admission for 54,000 seats in 61 DU colleges. The last date to submit application is June 19.
