NEW DELHI: The process of admission to over 60,000 seats in Delhi University's undergraduate courses will begin today with the varsity for the first time going for an entirely online procedure.

With the admission process being already delayed by over a week and the aspirants being in limbo about no clarity on admission norms, the varsity on Tuesday announced its admission policy for the upcoming academic session.

"As instructed by UGC earlier this year, the university has decided to make the entire process online. While till last year there used to be an option for filling offline applications and the students had to complete the admission formalities manually after announcement of the cut-off list, from this year all of it will be done online," DU's Dean of Students' Welfare JM Khurana said here.

"The students will have three days to complete the enrollment process following publication of each list. The merit lists for the remaining seats after admissions conclude for the fifth cut-off, will be announced by respective colleges," Khurana said.

The centralised Optical Mark Recognition (OMR)forms will be available on Delhi University's website -- -- and students will have to make the payment through Internet banking.
