University of Delhi recently dropped the plan of adding 5 extra seats in undergraduate courses in each of its affiliated college. The decision was taken after much controversy. Students, teachers and some colleges said that they cannot go ahead with the plan. They admitted that this was because the last date of admission was December 31 and there was no time left.

The principals of the affiliated colleges had welcomed this new decision. Talking to TOI, Anju Srivastava, principal of Hindu College said “It all happened in short notice and colleges require time to discuss with their governing bodies (GBs).”
