Delhi University (DU) has made it mandatory for candidates applying to undergraduate programs through Common Seat Allocation System (CSAS) to submit category certificates. Candidates who were rejected in CSAS round 1 due to the non-availability of category certificate will be considered in the Unreserved category in round 2, “subject to meeting the merit of UR category and preference order”.
The University of Delhi has reiterated its advice to candidates from underrepresented groups to submit the required documents and certificates at the time of applying to the Common Seat Allocation System.
In a statement, the university said that it had advised candidates from SC, ST, EWS, OBC-NCL, and PwBD/ CW categories through its webinars, bulletin of information and public notices to submit the required documents in the prescribed format.
The university urged all candidates to follow the instructions carefully so that their applications could be processed smoothly.
The candidates who could not provide a category certificate during the first round of CSAS seat allocation will now be placed in the Unreserved Category for the second round, given that there are still seats available and that they meet the other allocation policies.
The university has shared that over 72,800 out of 80,164 candidates have accepted the college and course allotted to them in the first round of allocations. In DU, admissions to 79 UG programmes across 67 colleges, departments, and centres are being made through CUET scores for the first time this year.
