New Delhi: The University of Delhi postponed the announcement of the first list of seat allocations in its colleges by one day until Wednesday.
The first round of the CSAS (Common Seat Allocation System) list will be released on Wednesday, it said in a notification.
“It is hereby given notice that the statement of the first round of the CSAS award list will be released tomorrow, that is, Wednesday, October 19, 2022,” the university said.
The development comes ahead of Wednesday’s Supreme Court hearing on a plea by St Stephen’s College, one of the university’s constituent colleges, against a Delhi High Court order on admissions.
The High Court had ordered the college to follow the university’s admissions policy, whereby 100% weighting should be given to the Common University Entrance Test (CUET)-2022 score while awarding admissions to non-minority students in undergraduate courses.
St Stephen’s College, however, would like to give 85% weight to CUET and 15% to interviews for the admission of students in all categories.
According to the detailed timetable published by the university, the first list of seat allocations was to be announced on Tuesday. “The university will now release the list on Wednesday,” an official told PTI.
The university began the admissions process for more than 70,000 places last month.
This year, Delhi University is admitting students through CUET scores instead of their Class 12 scores. On September 12, the university released CSAS, its Admission with Stipend Policy.
Admission through CSAS takes place in three phases – submission of the application form, selection of programs and filling in preferences, and allocation of places and admission.
