Delhi University Opens Registration Portal, Declares Single Girl Child Quota

Updated On: 7 June, 2024   By: Admission

Delhi University will provide one extra seat in each course at all colleges for a single girl child from the 2024-25 academic session. This is called the supernumerary quota, which means additional seats over the approved number. The university has around 71,000 seats across 79 undergraduate programs and 183 BA program combinations in 69 colleges and departments. For the first time, there will be an option in the admission portal to apply under the single girl child quota, similar to last year's reservation for orphan students. Eligible students will be matched to corresponding courses based on their eligibility. Colleges will verify documents before admission. Undergraduate admissions will happen in two phases based on CUET (Common University Entrance Test) scores, except for NCWEB and SOL which will use Class 12 marks. The first phase involves registration on the Common Seat Allocation System (CSAS) portal with personal, academic and CUET details. Students need to be careful while entering details as they cannot change them later. An application fee of ?250 for unreserved/OBC/EWS and ?100 for SC/ST/PwBD categories needs to be paid. The second phase will begin after CUET results, where students have to fill their program preferences. Candidates will need to map the subjects they studied in Class 12 to the subjects they appeared for in CUET. DU will only consider CUET subject papers that are same or similar to the Class 12 subjects. The order of preferences for program and college combinations will determine the allocation of seats. Students can choose from 1,500 unique combinations. It's advisable to opt for maximum preferences to benefit from upgradation in subsequent rounds. In subsequent allocation rounds, candidates must "accept" the allocated seat. The college will then verify the uploaded documents. After approval, the candidate can pay fees and get admission. Inaction will be considered as non-acceptance. After each round, DU will publish vacant seat details. Admitted candidates can choose to "upgrade" to a higher preference or "freeze" their allocation. Upgrading means getting considered for the higher preference, which requires accepting the upgraded seat. Freezing means no further upgradation. There will be a "mid-entry phase" for candidates who missed applying earlier. They can apply through a separate window announced later. DU will admit 20% extra students in General/OBC/EWS categories and 30% in SC/ST/PwBD categories to fill maximum seats. For colleges with less than 5% withdrawals last year, it will be 10% extra for General/OBC/EWS and 15% for SC/ST/PwBD.
