Opposite to the expected comfort of the online mode of application, DU's pre-admission online registration happened to come out as a difficult task for aspirants on the first day of the admission season 2013-14, though not to the extent of the last year.
Despite being less expensive, online registration process for DU admission received poor response on Wednesday. According to the dean of students' welfare office, just 5,500 successful registrations have been recorded on the first day that much less than that of the last year’s record of 18,000 registrations. And, this happened despite of the fact that this year the online registration is free of cost for the SC/ST/PWD candidates.
The drop in the online registrations on the first day was because of the technical hitches occurred in the university website. Many aspirants and parents who tried to log in and register on the first day admitted that the website was not responding properly and hence they were unable to access the centralized form. Even though when some aspirants managed to log in and register as well as made the payment, they did not receive the acknowledgment receipt.
The online registration mode for admission was adopted by DU in last year, and at that time also the technical bugs hindered the registration process for two initial days.
