The Delhi University (DU) for the very first time has organized a common counseling process for the admissions to the B. Tech programme being offered at three major engineering institutes in the Capital. Delhi Technological University (DTU), Indraprastha Institute of Information Technology (IIIT Delhi) and Indira Gandhi Delhi Technical University for Women (IGDTUW) came together for the common counseling process for the admission process of all those aspirants who wish to study.
The three engineering institutes has arrived in with a joint counseling portal named jacdelhi.nic.in which is designed and developed by National Informatics Centre and will be activated by first week of July. Online registration will start by first week of July and candidates can fill the online application form for admission to DTU, IIT Delhi and IGDTUW.
Till last year the candidates were admitted to these universities based on their JEE (Main) scores and counseling at each of these universities. On the whole about 85% seats are reserved for candidates who belong to the capital. Those candidates who applied for DTU last year had to appear for the online counseling for BTech admissions on the basis of their all India rank and performance in JEE (Main) examination.
The registration process this year will begin on 01 July 2014 and it will end on 12 July 2014. As per reports the first merit list will be declared on 16 July 2014. The last round of online counseling will be over by 31 July 2014. Around 15 streams are being offered at IGDTUW, 4 at DTU and 2 from IIIT Delhi. The seats for 15000 students are allotted and a boy can fill 17 choices whereas a female student can fill 21 choices.
This new concept has been adored by the aspirants as they find it beneficial than the previous way of getting admission in any of these engineering institutes. The harassment that the students and the parents face will lower down and they will not have to pay fees at three universities. As per pro vice chancellor, DTU, Professor SK Garg version, this process will also prevent the holding of multiple seats by a single student and spoiling the chances of other students as well.
