Amid coronavirus lockdown, Delhi University (DU) has announced to put its admission notice on halt till further notice. Earlier, DU planned to release its application forms from April 1, however, it has now been postponed till the lockdown period ends.
As it is already known that Prime Minister Narendra Modi had announced a nation-wide lockdown till April 14 to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
According to a previous order from the Delhi High Court, the DU and the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) were required to synchronize the admission process and results. Therefore, it is possible to anticipate the merit-based cut-offs after the CBSE board examination results, however, the application form can also be issued temporarily.
Last year, the university was reviewed because the application form was delayed for more than a month. In 2019, DU received a total of 2,58,388 applications and received 64,000 undergraduate degree seats. A similar number of students are expected to apply this year. Starting last year, the entrance examinations are being conducted by the National Testing Agency (NTA) and will continue this year.
Candidates need to fill application forms which will be available at the official website at du.ac.in.
