NEW DELHI: Besides 12 post offices and eight colleges, DU is planning to sell forms at New Delhi Metro Station on the Airport Express line as well. DU officials are hoping that the coming admission process will be a smooth ride for aspirants.
The forms will be available from June 4 at 12 head post offices and eight colleges – Miranda House in north campus, Atma Ram Sanatam Dharam College near Dhaula Kuan, PGDAV College and Gargi College in south Delhi, Bhagini Nivedita College near Najafgarh, Rajdhani College at Raja Garden, Swami Shradhanand College in Alipur and Shyam Lal College in east Delhi.
“We are also planning to arrange for the sale of forms at the New Delhi Railway Station on the Airport Line as it will be convenient for aspirants. They can simply use the Metro to fetch and submit the forms without really having to visit a college,” said J M Khurana, dean, students’ welfare. He added that the university was still working out the payment mode for online registration. “We want that candidates can apply to their choice of courses and colleges from the comfort of their homes. We are trying to make sure they can pay by using debit or credit cards,” Khurana assured.
Aspirants applying online will have to log onto the DU website following which a password will be generated. Candidates can then access the online form using this unique password. “The online form will be an exact copy of the printed OMR form,” Khurana said. On the second Open Day held on Sunday, many candidates sought clarifications on online registration. Nearly 300 aspirants and their parents visited the second Open Day held at North Campus. “Filling up the online form will be quick and easy. Though my mother insists that I should submit a printed form also just to be sure,” said Ketan Dewan, an admission-seeker from Janakpuri.
A day before the Class XII results, aspirants were keen to know about new courses and colleges. Maharaja Agrasen College Principal Sunil Sondhi, Manaswini M Yogi, coordinator of bachelor of mass media and mass communication at IP College for Women and Mamta Bhatia, OSD, Campus of Open Learning gave presentations and interacted with aspirants on the second Open Day.
Many candidates also inquired about the four-year BTech in innovation in maths and IT that was introduced last year by DU’s cluster innovation centre. “Only those students who have already taken admission in the first year will be eligible for the course. They will have to sit for an entrance test,” Khurana said.
