As many as 32,460 forms were sold at 18 designated centres while 2,345 online forms were submitted. A total of 3,129 filled-up forms were received at the centres.

The Delhi University's website on which the online centralized optical mark recognition (OMR) forms were available crashed in the morning. The technical problem was not rectified till the evening.

Long queues were witnessed at all the 18 centres where forms are being sold.

There were also complaints about mismanagement and lack of basic facilities like drinking water at these centres.

"It is so hot but there is no arrangement even for water for people standing in the queues," Priyanka Sharma, who was at the application form centre in North Campus, said.

The last date for submission of the forms is June 16.

A number of student organisations held protests at the Delhi University campus against the four-year undergraduate programme.

Effigies of Vice Chancellor Dinesh Singh were burnt by supporters of the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) at 14 centres demanding immediate rollback of four-year undergraduate programme.

Students and teachers also protested against reported replacement of the undergraduate degree programmes with diplomas and certificate courses in the School of Open Learning as UGC has raised objections about the dual degree status of the Honours degree programmes.
