A newspaper report has notified that the admission process for undergraduate and postgraduate courses in Delhi University has been notified. The application form for DU admission 2019 will now release on May 01, 2019. The reason for the delay has been stated that the committee working on the changes it wants to bring in this session and hence the delay.
One spokesperson said that DU 2019 registration process shall start immediately after the CBSE announces Class 12th result so that the students can easily choose the course which they wish to pursue. As per the unofficial sources, the result for CBSE Class 12th shall announce by May 13, 2019.
Another interesting news which has been circulating is that 85% quota to residents of Delhi in city colleges. The promise for 85% quota has been made by a political party in its manifesto. There has been already much debate for quota and it is one of the popular topics for the political parties. However, the harsh truth about the promises made by these political parties is that they are made without any research.
Several officials and former principals of Delhi University have confirmed that this is not a decision to be made by the state. It is not possible constitutionally even after the state attains full-statehood to imply such a big change in the admission process of DU. Hence, the officials have called the “85% quota to residents of Delhi in city colleges” nothing but a “hoax”.
Keeping aside the 85% seats for Delhi students in DU affiliated colleges, one point which was missed by these politicians was that all DU colleges are bound with statues and ordinances of DU Act. If a political party wants to make a change in the functioning and policies of these colleges, DU Act needs to be amended in the Parliament.
DU offers admission in UG and PG courses through two modes – Merit-based and entrance based. The online registration for DU admission 2019 will start at the official website, du.ac.in. Candidates must check the eligibility criteria before they proceed to fill DU Application Form. For merit-based courses, candidates are offered admission on the basis of their performance in Class 12th examination. DU releases the cut off for UG and PG courses for the merit-based admission.
