The Delhi University (DU) announced the introduction of a single girl child quota across all its programs for the academic session 2024-2025, as it began the admission process for undergraduate courses. The university launched the Common Seat Allocation System (CSAS) for UG admissions into 69 colleges and departments with 71,000 seats on offer.

At a press conference, DU officials revealed that there are no major changes in the admission policy this year, but the university has introduced a reservation for single girl children in all programs as part of the supernumerary seats. The registrar, Vikas Gupta, mentioned that the modalities for identifying single girl child claimants are still being worked out.

The admissions process will be conducted in two phases: the first phase involves registration at the CSAS portal, and the second phase involves seat allotment. A mid-entry option will also be available for applicants who failed to register on CSAS by paying a non-refundable fee of Rs 1,000. However, such candidates will not be eligible to claim a seat that has been allocated to another candidate who applied through CSAS in the initial phase.

The CSAS website has been opened for registration and will remain open for about a month. The second phase of DU admissions will begin after the declaration of the CUET UG results, which are expected to be released on June 30. The CUET UG exams are currently underway.

Like last year, DU will take admissions based on the Common University Entrance Test (CUET) scores for both UG and PG courses and also provide admissions for PhD courses based on the same.
