Over 20,000 forms were sold on the first day of the offline application process for admission to Delhi University’s undergraduate courses that began on Friday.
“A total of 21,813 forms were sold on day one of the offline application process. Maximum forms were sold at SGTB Khalsa college which is the only registration centre in North Campus,” DU’s spokesperson and Joint Dean of Students’ welfare Malay Neerav said.
With the varsity deciding to start the online registration process eight days prior to the traditional offline admission process this year, the admission seeker’s interest in the paper form filling has decreased.
