New Delhi: The admission process in Delhi University for physically challenged and SC/ST students are beginning from Saturday. This year, the students will have to fill the Intelligent Character Recognition (ICR) forms instead of Optical Mark Reader (OMR) during the admissions. The ICR is student-friendly which will also reduce the burden of the DU authorities to upload wrong data.

Dean Students' Welfare (DSW) of DU, Prof J M Khurana said, “The centralized admission form of SC/ST students will be filled at Art Faculty of North Campus, Deputy DSW office at South Campus, Shyamlal College in Shahadra and Rajdhani College at Raja Garden.”

The students can get the registration done at the DSW office of North Campus between May 28 and June 08. Barring Sundays, the registration process will continue all week days between 9.30 am and 2 pm.

For the physically challenged students, the admission forms will be filled at DSW office and the merit list for the special students will also be released from the DSW office. While the merit list for the SC/ST candidates will be released from Art faculty.

The students will be required to bring a set of the Xerox copies of the original and provisional certificates. The physically challenged students will be required to bring a certificate of 40 percent physical disability for the admission.

A dedicated centre, specially trained volunteers and pick up services have all been put in place for assisting the students during the admission process. The students can also go through DU website for the status of colleges, seat availability and courses. The students can also call on the helpline number of DU- 011-27662507.
