As part of the changed rules, the university is also planning to begin the registration process for admission from the first week of April this year. "Efforts are being made to keep all boards at par", said Maharaj K Pandit, head of the DU admissions committee that announced the plan for the 2018-19 session on Monday.

The Delhi University undergraduate admission process traditionally held from June to August. "We are thinking to hold orientation programmes to help principals understand this", he said. "Unrealistic" cutoffs by some colleges, he added, often result in a large number of vacant seats in some subjects even after the 10th cutoff list and DU has to conduct special drives to fill them up.

Last year, DU came up with 11 cut-off lists for admission to various undergraduate courses for around 56,000 seats in across 61 colleges.

"The committee will suggest ways to allocate seats to students through a centralised system without the dependence of principals in order to save time", Prof.

"Beyond the reservation policy, there will be 2 per cent extra benefit in cut-off to OBC women candidates", Prof Pandit said, adding that the proportion of girls studying in the varsity past year was much lesser than boys in this category.

Among the recommendation, the university is also mulling over the idea to introduce computer-based online tests for admissions into all UG and PG programs.

While reviewing the admission data from the previous year, it was seen that more boys from the OBC category had applied to the university's colleges.

Mr. Pandit said that the committee has also recommenced to all colleges to hire a forensic expert to verify certificates relating to reserved category admission as well as sports and ECA category admissions to avoid the problem of fake certificates.

The panel also made a decision to send advisory to all colleges to have forensic experts to verify certificates of students, to avoid rejection of applications after a long duration.

"However, if the college already gives a 1% relaxation to female students, then they would give only an additional 1% advantage to the female OBC candidate, so that the total advantage is not more than 2%" said Pandit.
