New Delhi: Putting to rest anxiety of those who do not have access to internet and computers and claim that cyber cafes charge them a big amount for the purpose, a few Delhi University colleges have decided to open their computer labs for admission seekers.
The university for the first time has made the entire process online for admission to over 60,000 undergraduate seats. The process began on Wednesday and over 39000 applications were received on Day 1 itself.
However, while the queries about the technicalities of the online process seem to be burdening the varsity officials, students wings of various political parties have been accusing DU of taking the decision without considering those who come from poor background and have limited access to computers and internet.
“Various colleges such as Deen Dayal Upadhyay, Janki college, IP college for women, etc are providing access to their computer labs for admission seekers. Also, the students need to be worried about the process being technical. Open day sessions are being conducted for the same purpose,” a senior university official said.
The university has also uploaded an animated video on YouTube detailing the filling up of application forms and further process. The online registration will continue till 19 June and the first cut-off list will be announced on 27 June.
