DU admissions: Online registrations get poor response

Even as Delhi University witnessed unprecedented sale of forms, the online registration, despite being less expensive, received poor response. In fact, according to dean of students' welfare office, just 5,500 aspirants registered online on the first day as against 18,000 last year. This is despite the fact that the online process has been opened for SC/ST and PWD candidates from this academic session and they can apply for free. The drop in the online registrations on the first day was because of apprehension and bad experience regarding the process. Many DU aspirants and parents who tried to log in and register claimed that the website was not responding and they were unable to access the centralized form. Some aspirants managed to register and also made the payment but did not receive acknowledgment receipt. "I have been trying to log in and register since morning. After failing to get the form, I decided to come to the campus and here I am standing in the queue for over one hour. The website was simply not responding," said Shravani Ghosh at the Arts Faculty, North Campus. "The criteria for submitting online forms aren't clear. There are no instructions or any sort of guidance," complained Radhika Sharma. There is also a section of students who said they cannot avail the online facility as the payment has to be made through a credit or debit card, while still others were unaware of the online registration itself. "We came to know about the online registrations only after we came to the campus," said Vikas Yadav.
