Delhi University is thinking to create a separate branch just to conduct the admission process from the next academic year. Delhi University has had a branch to take care of admissions however, it does not have a separate branch to conduct admissions.
The admission process of DU falls under a committee headed by the dean of students’ welfare. For all admission related issues, the new proposed branch will be now responsible and will be headed by the dean of admissions.
DU admissions usually carry on for about four months and are considered to be one of the major processes. However, this year,the admissions took a bit longer than usual due to the confusion and fuss created after centralizing the application process.
Yogesh Tyagi, DU Vice Chancellor said that this year, about 7.5 lakh applications were received by the Delhi University. He added that the reason behind making the application process online was to eliminate any unfair means of admission and to make the entire process a bit more transparent. Another step that they are looking into is making centralized trials for sports and ECA.
Tyagi mentioned that they are trying to come up with a separate branch for admissions to more than 60 colleges and a total of 1.9 lakh students. Though he did not state the exact time required before making it functional, but he is hopeful that it will be ready before the next admission season.
