Delhi University Introduce Single Girl Quota

Delhi University (DU) announced a significant policy change on Tuesday, introducing a supernumerary quota for single girl children starting from the academic session 2024-25. The announcement was made by DU registrar Vikas Gupta and other officials during a press conference at the Vice Chancellor’s Office, North Campus.

The new policy will allocate one additional seat in each course across all colleges for single girl children. This initiative aims to promote gender equality and support single girl children in accessing higher education.

This is the first time that the university will offer a supernumerary quota to a single girl child,” said Gupta. He further explained that the application process for this quota will be integrated into the Common Seat Allocation System (CSAS) portal, similar to the reservation arrangements made for orphan students last year. Colleges will verify the necessary proofs and documents before finalizing admissions.

The announcement coincided with the launch of the CSAS portal for undergraduate programme admissions. The university offers nearly 71,000 seats across 79 undergraduate programmes and 183 BA combinations in 69 colleges and departments.

The UG admission process will proceed in two phases, based on scores obtained in the Common University Entrance Test (CUET). For the Non-Collegiate Women’s Education Board (NCWEB) and the School of Open Learning (SOL), admissions will be based on Class 12 marks. Registration for NCWEB started on Tuesday, while SOL admissions will commence on June 3.

In the first phase of CSAS, candidates must fill in personal and academic details, including their CUET application number. The application fee is set at ₹250 for unreserved, OBC, and economically weaker sections, and ₹100 for scheduled castes, scheduled tribes, and persons with benchmark disabilities.

The second phase will begin with the declaration of CUET results, requiring students to complete preference-filling for programmes and colleges. A DU official highlighted the importance of aligning Class 12 subjects with CUET domain papers for eligibility.

DU will admit 20% extra students in each programme for general, OBC, and EWS categories, and 30% for SC, ST, and PwBD categories to maximize seat utilization. Colleges with less than 5% withdrawal rates last year will see 10% extra allotments for UR, OBC(NCL), and EWS, and 15% for SC, ST, and PwBD categories.

Additionally, a “mid-entry phase ” will allow late applicants to apply through a separate window announced later by the university. This comprehensive admission process ensures optimal seat allocation and opportunities for all students.

Delhi University continues to lead in providing inclusive and innovative educational opportunities, setting a benchmark for higher education institutions across the country. With its forward-thinking policies and commitment to excellence, DU remains a beacon of hope and progress for students from diverse backgrounds.
