Dr Rajeev Gupta, the chairperson of the admission committee, says “The registration process for the university will, most likely, start from May 1 as the officials are yet to complete the preparations. We will, soon, come up with the revised schedule once we are ready with our changed policies and procedures.”

Another committee member said that another reason for the delay is because the university is working in collecting all the database of the students registered with the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE). “The mark sheets and certificates can be acquired directly once and if we are able to get the database of the students, making the process a lot more clear. The process of getting the database is still underway”, the member said.

Changes to be made in DU 2019 Admissions
