With the application process for admissions to Delhi University winding up, the university has now issued a notification for the registration of wards of Kashmiri migrants.
Admission through this quota does not take place with the general admissions process, since this quota is 'over and above' other reserved categories of the university.
"This reservation quota is over and above other reservation quotas like SC, ST and OBC. Admission through this quota is independent of the university's admissions process," said G S Tuteja, Deputy Dean, Students Welfare.
In spite of this quota being available, the number of seats falling under it is extremely low.
University guidelines do not permit any college to grant admissions to more than three students under this quota and must have at least one seat each in all the three streams: Humanities, Commerce and Science.
Registration process would be centralised and would take place between July 1 and 3 from 10 am to 1 pm, while notification and allotment of courses and colleges would be out on July 9.
For registration, applicants can get the prescribed form from Room no. 220 of the Academic Branch-1 at the new administrative block of Delhi University.
