New Delhi, July 17: Despite six rounds of admissions in Delhi University, a number of colleges still have seats vacant and have issued a seventh cut-off list late yesterday night.
Unlike previous years, some of the much sought colleges such as Hansraj, Ramjas and Kamala Nehru still have admissions open in Commerce for general category.
However, the cut offs have dipped only slightly for the course with Hansraj issuing it at 96.25-98 per cent, Ramjas at 95.75-97.75 per cent and Kamala Nehru at 92-96.75 per cent. Other colleges where Commerce is still available are Acharya Narendra Dev, Janaki Devi Memorial, Kalindi, Lakshmi Bai, Moti Lal Nehru, Satyawati, S.G.T.B. Khalsa, S.G.N.D. Khalsa, Shivaji, Shyama Prasad Mukherjee College and Sri Aurobindo.
Fifteen colleges including Delhi College of Arts and Commerce still have Economics on offer. English on the other hand is still available at 9 colleges. Admission for Political Science and History was closed in most colleges.
Gargi and Moti Lal Nehru were the only two exceptions to have both the courses on offer. The science courses were mostly closed for admissions.
In many colleges, seats remained vacant in the reserved categories for all the courses. Meanwhile, Delhi University Teachers' Association (DUTA) members staged a protest outside the Vice Chancellor's office demanding that the university ensure continuation of all ad-hoc teachers in their respective colleges from the new session.
They claimed that many colleges were displacing ad-hoc teachers from their jobs under the pretext of holding interviews. Classes for the new academic session are to begin from July 24. This year Delhi University is introducing the new four-year undergraduate programme.
