All India Confederation of Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes Organizations' Press Note
Dr. Udit Raj, National President of the AICOSCSTO , has unveiled the discrimination against Dalit students in admissions to the DU. The procedure for admissions to the first year commenced on 4th June. For SC/ST students, it turned out to be an ordeal as they had to face discrimination even in a mundane endeavor like securing admission. The General category students have the facility to apply online, but the admission procedure has not been computerized for SC/ST students.
Over the first 4 days, about 50,000 applications were filed online by general category candidates. The authorities have made applying for admissions an onerous task for the SC/ST candidates by excluding them from the online application facility. In contrast, the General category students may file their applications at any of the centres - Miranda House College, Facility of Arts (North Campus), Swami Shradhanad College, Dy. Dean Office (South Campus), Atmaram Sanatan Dharm College, P.G.D.A.V. College, Gargi College, Shyam Lal College, Rajdhani College, Bhagini Nevidita College. They can also file their applications at any one of the 12 allocated Post Offices.
