NEW DELHI: Delhi University has decided to come up with more cutoff lists for the OBC category as many seats are still vacant in several colleges.
The university notified on Thursday that colleges would announce the 8th cutoff list for OBC candidates to various undergraduate courses on July 21. The eligible candidates will be allowed to secure their seats and pay admission fees from July 21-23.
According to university sources, there may be more such lists if the seats for OBC candidates are not filled up under the 8th list. While the majority of campus colleges are expected to close their OBC admission in the 8th list, many off-campus colleges will keep admissions open.
DU on Thursday also announced the third cutoff list for admissions to BA/ BCom programmes of the non-collegiate women’s education board for the academic year 2012-13.
For general category candidates, BA Programme has been closed for admissions in Janki Devi Memorial College and Sri Guru Gobind Singh College of Commerce, while BCom has been closed in Hans Raj, Sri Guru Gobind Singh College of Commerce, Kalindi and Janki Devi Memorial College.
Seats for the reserved categories are, however, open for admissions across all 13 centres in Hansraj, Lakshmibai, Kalindi, Shyama Prasad Mukherjee, Jesus and Mary, Maitreyi, Sidharth International School, Maharaja Agrasen, Janki Devi Memorial, Mata Sundri, Bharati, Sri Guru Gobind Singh College of Commerce and PGDAV College.
The non-collegiate board runs these courses for women in these centres. These courses are different from that of School of Open Learning as the students need to attend classes which are conducted on Saturdays, Sundays and during vacation of the colleges.
The courses have to be completed in 50 teaching days and the students sit for the regular DU exams along with other college students.
