The Delhi University has asked colleges to come out with an 8th , and if needed, 9th cut-off list exclusively for OBC candidates to complete admission to reserved seats. No conversion of seats lying vacant in the OBC quota, in different colleges, into unreserved seats will be allowed.
The University withdrawing its current policy of allowing colleges to give OBC candidates no more than 10 per cent relaxation in cut-offs as compared to general category students, has asked colleges to increase the relaxation given to OBC candidates beyond the 10 per cent margin if required.
The University said it has taken the decision to allow relaxation in cut-offs for OBC candidates beyond 10 per cent in view of a High Court judgement dated December 16, 2010, as well as letters received from the Ministry of Human Resource Development on the subject of admission to OBC quota seats.
The 8th cut-off list, for OBC candidates only, will be released by the University on August 9 and admissions based on the list will take place on August 10 and 11, 2011. Colleges which are yet fill the OBC quota seats have to prepare an 8th cut-off and send it to the Registrar by 8 pm on the August 9.
If OBC quota seats are left vacant after admissions based on the 8th cut-off list close, colleges will be required to bring the cut-off down further and bring out a 9th cut-off list to be published by the University on August 11. Admissions based on the 9th cut-off list will take place on August 12 , 13 and 16.
Colleges have been asked to inform the Registrar about vacant seats in OBC quota in each course when admissions based on the 8th cut-off list and the 9th cut-off list close on of August 11th and 16.
