Only one online application per candidate will be accepted for the upcoming Delhi University Under Graduate admission season.
Last year over 3.5 lakh candidates registered for various undergraduate courses,out of which nearly 30,000 filled more than one application form. In order to avoid such a situation this year,the admission committee,which is deliberating on the new admission policy for 2017-18, is also working towards making aadhaar numbermandatory for the registration process.
The reason for filling multiple forms are diverse. “While filling the online form if the connection crashes, many candidates fill a second form. Many do it to rectify their mistakes, while others want to be doubly sure,” an official, who is also a member of the admission committee told Times of India.
To avoid such duplicity the university will allow only one application per candidate and a window will be given during which they can rectify their mistakes and submit again, the official said. The procedure, however, is at the recommendation stage and the administration are yet to take a final call, he added.
Another official said linking of Aadhaar number will help in declaration of results and issuing of certificates online as well as providing other facilities like disbursement of scholarships.
