DU Admissions 2017: High Court Asks for Priority Admission to Delhi Students

Delhi University (DU) is one of the prestigious education institutes of India where a large number of students throng to take admissions into various UG and PG courses, every year. In order to discourage migration of students to other private colleges, the Delhi High Court (HC) has ordered the Delhi Government as well as Delhi University to continue with the admission 2017 of students holding Delhi domicile. The Delhi High Court has issued a notice on an admission plea for giving preference to Delhi students in the university.  

Priority admission for Delhi students in DU

Talking about the priority admission for Delhi students in DU, Parvesh Verma and Manjinder Singh Sirsa, Member of Parliament from Delhi and Delhi assembly member respectively held a meeting with Delhi University’s Vice Chancellor, Yogesh Tyagi. They discussed that how the students with Delhi domicile have to spend amount as an admission fee to other private universities when they do not get the admission in DU.

Their main concern for the plea of priority admission 2017 at Delhi University for Delhi student was that the candidates from NCR were getting seats in the colleges of Delhi University under the liberal marking pattern. However, the students who are from Delhi couldn’t get the admission because of the strict marking. In fact, Aam Admi Party (AAP) had also intervened in the same matter, asking Delhi University’s Vice Chancellor to give priority for admission to Delhi based students over students hailing from NCR, but it was somehow turned down by DU.

Seeking quota for Delhi students in University admission

In the same case, the two political leaders have now made a plea to set a 70 % quota/ reservation for the students with Delhi domicile or liberation of 3% to 5% on the marks while conducting admission in Delhi University. However, the Delhi University has announced its fifth cut-off list today for the remaining 1000 vacant seats in the various colleges for undergraduate courses.

Let’s hope that the students of Delhi get through the priority admission procedure of University of Delhi and may the Delhi University (DU) gives its thumbs up on the quota plea too.
