Why is the Delhi university introducing various courses?

"When we studied the number of applications received for these courses, we found that many students had applied but only a limited number got admission. There is a lot of demand for these courses among students so we are providing a chance for students to study these courses through distance medium," Dubey added.

About the approval of the courses:

The courses will now have to be approved by the university administration and then another approval from the distance education board (DEB) will be required before starting the courses.
Delhi University announced that it is planning to scrap the cut-off system from 2017-18 and likely introduce an entrance test for admissions into undergraduate courses.
