New Delhi: The third cut-off list of Delhi University (DU) may disappoint the students of general category as they have options in only a few courses, but the OBC students will certainly avail the benefit.

In an expected move, all those colleges which earlier did not give 10 percent reductions to the OBC students have decided to allow the same to fill up the quota.

According to reports, colleges are expecting that admissions on regular seats will provide better options to students in the third cut off which will make at least 20 percent seats vacant. This will facilitate in managing the extra pressure of admissions.

Elaborating further, the principal, Dayal Singh Evening College, Deepak Malhotra on Saturday said his college has admitted 700 students on 639 seats. “Previously, the college kept the cut-offs at 79 percent and admitted 210 students on 170 seats. Even BA course has 200 students on 140 seats,” he said.

Dr Guljeet Arora, Principal of Bhim Rao Ambedkar College, informed that for 872 seats only 257 admissions have taken place due to limited reduction in cut-offs.

“Under OBC quota only 40 students have taken their admissions and it is assumed that after reduction in the third cut-offs more admissions will take place,” Arora added.

Notably, in Kamla Nehru, Ramjas, Hansraj and Daulat Ram Colleges admissions are over barring Sanskrit and some other courses. For OBC quota, the colleges will release the cut-offs soon.

It is also hoped that the cut-offs will also be released for the subjects of Philosophy, Hindi, Sanskrit and Applied Sciences.
