Moreover, the community radio, available on the frequency of 90.4 Mhz will also cater to applicants in the coming days.
“Under the banner “Mission DU Admission”, the radio channel will have experts – including college principals and teachers – to answer students’ queries.
For half-an-hour, the channel will air a programme centered around colleges while another half hour show will take questions from applicants,” a university official said.
