 DU to start telecounselling helplines from May 4
Tuesday, April 28, 2009 More News...

New Delhi: The Delhi University (DU) has come up with an innovative idea to help thousands of students who want to seek admission in DU.

The DU will start telecounselling from May 4 of this year to guide students as to when they can collect the forms, courses offered, eligibility and the colleges affiliated with DU.

The forms for admission to DU will be available tentatively from June 1 onwards.

DU will also increase the total number of seats by 18% this year to accommodate students under OBC quota.

This will lead to availability of 47,000 seats for admissions this year.

Trained student counsellors from different colleges in the university will be counseling students.

Open days will be held from May 24 to 31 wherein student counsellors and faculties from DU will hold interactive sessions with aspirants and their parents at various colleges throughout the city.

The volunteers will provide information on the admission process and give presentation on the infrastructure and academics in the DU.

These steps will help provide accurate information about the university procedure before the admissions.

"The main purpose behind all these steps is to make the admission process student friendly. And to make sure that the student gets complete information during the admission rush," said Prof. S.K. Vij, Dean, Students welfare.

"Around 20 DU students will volunteer for the training and counsel their juniors better who are fresh out of school. They will listen to their problems and counsel them for the colleges and courses. People can even contact us through email and we will try to revert back within 24 hours," said Gurpreet Singh Tuteja, deputy dean, Students' welfare.

The email id is dsw@du.ac.in

The helpline numbers are 27662507 / 08 / 241198332
