A nine-member committee had constituted on Wednesday, in order to prepare the admission policies for the 4-year Undergraduate degree scheme of DU and its time table which recommended a cutoff based admission for SC/ST candidates.
The committee enacted by the DU Vice Chancellor recommended that the SC/ST students should be given the opportunity to choose their course and colleges by their own. He said, Till last year, the admission process of SC/ST candidates used to be different from that of general and OBC candidates.
Virendra Bhardwaj, a member of the committee said "After the Centrlized applications, the SC/ST students were issued slips stating the name of the college and the course given to them. The committee has recommended that instead of the slips, the college should be done. This will give more choice to the students".
Now, about 25% seats are reserved for the SC/ST candidates.
