New Delhi: The DU students' body has demanded that offline admission centres also be set up at the varsity's North Campus after such counters were announced only for its South Campus ahead of admissions for the 2015-16 session.
The admissions for the 2015-16 academic session will begin from May 28. The offline registrations will open on June 5.
The varsity has announced that it would set up eight admission centres this year as against the 18 which were opened last year.
The centres -- Atma Ram Sanatan Dharm College, Dyal Singh College, Gargi College, Maharaja Agrasen College, PG DAV College, Rajdhani College, Shyam Singh College and Sri Guru Gobind Singh College of Commerce -- are all located in South Campus.
"The North Campus area is a students' hub and many admission seekers come and stay here. It would be difficult for the aspirants to make the commute to the South Campus.
"Many admission seekers from outer Delhi's rural belt, especially girls, find it difficult to commute to far off places to purchase the form. An admission centre at a college in their vicinity will be helpful for them," Delhi University Students' Union (DUSU) said in a memorandum submitted to varsity authorities.
DUSU is the representative body of students in all the colleges and faculties of the university.
Mohit Nagar, President of the ABVP-led union, said, "We had a meeting with the Dean of Students' Welfare and demanded that at least three admission centres be set up in North Campus colleges and two in outer Delhi colleges."
