For the first time,Delhi University has reserved seats for children of Indian Army men,who had to leave the army due to injuries suffered in a war during this year’s admissions.
“The move of providing reservation to wards of those militarymen who have suffered a medical injury and had to opt out of service should come as a relief to DU aspirants who were earlier not included in the ambit of reservation of ‘Children of War’ category,” said Gurpreet Singh Tuteja, deputy dean of Students’ Welfare and a member of the admission committee.
Delhi University has been offering admission to children and widows of officers and men of the armed forces,including the para-military personnel.
In addition to this, the university also reserves seats for widows and wards of defence personnel,who died in peace time during their military service and children of serving and ex-servicemen who have received gallantry awards like Param Vir Chakra, Ashok Chakra, Maha Vir Chakra.
