The university announced on Wednesday the much-awaited first list of seat allocation for undergraduate programmes, marking the commencement of the third and last phase of the admission process.
Manoj Sinha, principal of Aryabhatta College, said, "It is much simpler for colleges and for students. Sitting within the comfort of their home, they can discuss with their peers which college and course to choose. There are less chances of over admissions as DU will be allotting seats."
Till last year, DU carried out admissions on the basis of cut-offs and colleges had to admit students meeting the cut-offs even if that meant admitting 100 students for 20 seats, but principals said the scenario has changed now.
"DU is carrying out the counselling and we will get a list of say 90 or 100 students against 70 seats. Earlier, the numbers were almost 400. We were doing the admissions, and also cancelling them in case students withdrew. This time, the numbers are lower and there will be less cancellations," said Manoj Khanna, principal of Ramjas College.

Gyantosh Jha, principal of Atma Ram Sanatan Dharma College, said that earlier colleges had to decide cut-offs, release them and then admit students. "There was always a fear of over admissions and whether the cut-offs will be sufficient enough, but this time we hope that things will be easier," he said.
This year, Delhi University is admitting students through CUET scores. On September 12, the university released the Common Seat Allocation System (CSAS), its admission-cum-allocation policy. Admission through the CSAS is being conducted in three phases - submission of the application form, selection of programmes and filling of preferences, and seat allocation and admission. The university has advised candidates to ensure that they secure their admission to the seat allocated to them, whenever it is offered.
