DU Admissions 2019 : Despite EWS Reservation,Seats Remain Vacant In Colleges


- Advertisment - Copy code snippet

Since, Economically Weaker Section (EWS) quota has come into existence this year, colleges of Delhi University are struggling to fill the seats as only 27% of seats have been filled yet. And the reason is pretty obvious- higher cut-offs.

“There will be a special drive for the students of reserved category, including EWS, after the fifth cut-off list.” RK Dwivedi, admission in charge at Aryabhatta College told TOI.

Only 1,527 aspirants have been admitted under the EWS category till now.

While some students blame the high cut-offs under EWS category as the reason for not filling up of seats, there are many teachers who feel that cut-offs cut-offs shouldn’t be blamed for the vacant seats under EWS category as colleges having a lower cutoff still haven’t been able to attract a lot of admissions.

In courses like English (Honours) where unreserved category students require 96% marks on the other side, reserved category students require only 86% marks, still there have been no takers for the EWS category.
