DU Admission Panel for Disabled Students
The Delhi University (DU) has asked colleges affiliated to it to set up an "Special Category Admission Enabling Committees" for specially challenged/ disabled students and those belonging to the Socially Marginalized Sections aspiring to join the new four-year undergraduate programmes.

The university have asked the colleges to update the names of the members of these panels on their official websites on or before 27th June, 2013.

An official from the University, Bipin Tiwari, 'Equal Opportunity Cell (EQC)' said "We have asked all the colleges to constitute a dedicated committee to promote the process of inclusion so that the students get a direct chance to interact with teachers and get familiarized with the colleges".

Moreover, the panels are tasked to facilitate admissions of the disabled and students from the Scheduled Castes, the Scheduled Tribes and other backward classes.

"Till last year, the students were issued a slip by the EOC, and they had to go to colleges, pay their fees and complete the admission process", said Bipin Tiwari.

"Now, each college is required to have a separate window, an easy internal college form and, more importantly, easy accessible forms in audio and print for students with disabilities", he added.

With respect to the guidelines given by the University, all colleges are required to update the names of the committee members on their websites before the announcement of the first cut-off list by June 27, but only four have compiled so far.

It seems like, some staffs in these four colleges are not aware of their exact role on these special committees. Other colleges that have constituted the enabling committees are Daulat Ram College, Mata Sundari College for Women and Shri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC).
