New Delhi: A number of Delhi University
colleges today came out with a lowered cut-off list for OBC
candidates, hoping to round up admissions in the category over
the next two days.
The list, understood to be the last for this year`s
admission season, showed there was plenty in store for OBC
students as many colleges had failed to fill up the seats in
this reserved category.
Hansraj, Gargi, Lady Shri Ram, Sri Venkateshwara and
Hindu college are among the high-profile colleges, who lowered
their cut-offs in several subjects including the much sought
after B Com (honours) and Eco (honours).
While Hindu lowered the B Com (honours) cut-off
percentage for OBC candidates to 85.5, Hansraj brought it down
to 82 and LSR put it at 89.25. Dayal Singh college is ready to
admit students to fill the quota at 79 percent.
Colleges were directed by the University to declare
two additional cut-off lists for the category and bring down
the relaxation to a maximum of 10 percent if necessary
after a large number of seats were left vacant despite five
rounds of admissions.
The University had also asked colleges not to transfer
the reserved seats to general category students until further
notice from the government.
Admission for the released list will be held on July
18 and 19.
The HRD Ministry last month wrote to the University,
asking it to implement 27 per cent reservation for OBC
students in "letter and spirit" after the issue was brought to
the notice of the government.
