DU Admissions: Helpdesks, helplines, computer labs to assist applicants


This year’s software process would require greater tech guide than usual but help may be at hand. Delhi university schools that have them, will make their computer laboratories to be had for on-line admission.
applicants will should add scans and copies of over a dozen files — a first in DU — similarly to filling a significanly greater particular online shape. “students can visit any college that has a computer laboratory or centre and are seeking assistance. colleges will assist as lots as they are able to,” says admission committee-member, R N Dubey. Deen Dayal Upadhyaya college essential, SK Garg, says the laptop centre or even staff at his university will be available to assist. not like for the nursery-school-stage EWS admissions, candidates may not must hit the internet cafes.

As might be pupil establishments who have historically used the software-helpdesk route for recruitment and growth. A device wherein packages into even extra-curricular sports (ECA) and sports activities quota can be filed on line makes college-degree assist-desks unviable. consequently, extra student firms are transferring to different spots, specially metro stations. The Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad could have 14 desks across Delhi (two to a region) with maximum kitted out with computers and printers and net-enabled. “we can fill the bureaucracy for candidates but they may must pay on their personal. We can not make certain scanner anywhere but even phones can be used for scanning,” says ABVP spokesperson, Saket Bahuguna including, “even though the method has been moved on-line, students still go to. In North Campus, we’re going to have one centre at Arts school and any other at the metro station.”


In fact, metro stations may be the new centres for admission seekers and scholar activists to fulfill. The country wide students Union of India will place its helpdesks at the stations closest to colleges. “DU receives many outstation applicants who like to visit the campuses, get familiar and determine out what centers are available,” says NSUI spokesperson Neeraj Mishra. they will also set up a helpline for each sector.
The North-East forum for international team spirit, too, may have helpdesks — with computer systems and scanners — but in Assam and Manipur. “we’re already counselling students and hleping them fill forms. In Delhi, we’re going to handiest deliver out helpline numbers,” says Chinglen Khumukcham of NEFIS.
If candidates can get to any of these centres, there are colleges. Tania Joshi of the Indian college has advised her students they may be unfastened to use the resources of the school to apply and upload documents. “I had a kid call me these days and she or he was pretty upset ubout the uploading. that is the first batch and at the same time as maximum kids may have computers and get entry to to the net, they will now not have provisions for scanning and so on.,” says Joshi, “i have advised them they are able to come to the college and do it any time they like.”
