With the ever increasing number of students registering for Delhi University admissions every year, the varsity will soon have an admissions branch to ensure a hassle-free admission process for the students.
According to a report by the Times of India, Rasal Singh, a member of the standing committee on admissions for the 2019-20 academic session, said, “Delhi University is India’s biggest and premier central university. Lakhs of students from all over India and abroad come here for admissions. We don’t have a dedicated and full-fledged admission branch for a consistent admission policy and its implementation. The lack of it, hence, leads to unnecessary delays and makes it complicated too.”
The admission committee will likely consist of members of the dean of students’ welfare (DSW) office, college principals and teacher representatives from the colleges, nominated by the vice-chancellor. The admission committee will further work under the guidance of the advisory committee, ensuring a transparent and efficient admission process.
According to the report, every year, a new set of officials are appointed to look over the admission process, which is conducted for the undergraduate programmes in 63 colleges, postgraduate admissions in over 50 departments, alongside MPhil and PhD admissions.
“The MPhil/PhD admissions are still ongoing, so in the university, the admission is almost a year-long process. Hence, having a branch to exclusively deal with it is very much required,” said Singh.
