Delhi BJP launched new initiative to connect with youth, launches admission information booklet for DU also available at www.bjpdelhi.org
New Delhi, May 29: To facilitate availability of useful information for large number of students seeking admission in Delhi University, the Delhi Bharatiya Janata Party today released an “Admission Information Booklet” for undergraduate courses in Delhi University in a function at Mavlankar Hall where several students also interacted with the experts to resolve their doubts over various aspects of the admission process in the DU.
The 20-page booklet has detailed information about all aspects of admission including admission dates, various categories of admission, rules about changing courses and colleges, list of documents to be submitted at the time of admission. The booklet is also available at www.bjpdelhi.org. It is also being made available through various information centres to be run by Delhi BJYM, the youth wing of Delhi BJP, all 14 district BJP offices in the Capital and at Delhi BJP’s Office at 14, Pandit Pant Marg.
Releasing the booklet, Delhi BJP President Shri Vijay Goel said, “This is one of the initiatives by the Delhi BJP to connect with the students and youth in the capital. We are releasing this information booklet much before the DU has come out with its own information bulletin so that students and parents can get a clarity about the admission process well in advance and prepare for the admission process accordingly.”
The admission process for the DU is beginning on June 5. Around 1,80,000 students have passed out Class XII exams from the Delhi schools. Another one lakh students from other states are likely to apply for the much sought after DU courses.
Addressing the students and parents at the function, Shri Goel said, “There are only 54,000 seats for regular undergraduate students in DU colleges, out of which around 29000 are only available under general category. This creates intense pressure on students seeking admission.
A large number of students from Delhi are left out as due to shortage of seats. This is unfair to them but unfortunately, the Delhi government has not opened a single new college in DU to ease this crunch over the last 15 years.”
Shri Goel suggested, “There are some immediate measures which can be taken to increase number of seats in DU such as running evening colleges in all the morning colleges.”
He added, “If some of the well known DU colleges can open similar institutions in other states, this would help students from other states to get admission in good colleges in their states and they won’t be compelled to come to Delhi. This would help Delhi students to get greater number of seats.”
The function was attended by a number of former office bearers of Delhi University Students Union (DUSU) including Shri Gaurav Khari(presently BJYM President) and Shri Vikas Dahiya (Co-convenor, information centre) as well as academics who helped students with their queries regarding the admission process.
