talking with The Indian ExpressDelhi University dean (admissions) Haneet Gandhi said the university will launch its Common Seat Allocation System (CSAS) portal “within a week”.
“After the portal is launched, we will give enough time to the candidates to register. We will give them about 3 weeks to apply,” Gandhi added. University vice-chancellor Yogesh Singh told PTI on Thursday that the portal would start “very soon”.
According to a notice issued by the university, students “must ensure” that “certificates/documents (as applicable) are in a ready format by August 31, 2022”.
Documents required include Class 10th & 12th certificates, SC/ST/OBC-NCL/EWS/Minority/CW/KM/PwBD certificate if any; OBC-No-Creamy Layer Certificate, Income Certificate, if applicable; EWS certificate, if applicable; and Sikh/Christian Minority Certificate, if applicable; Educational Concession Certificate (ECC) for Children/Widows of the Armed Forces Personnel category; Reference disability certificate for people with disabilities; and relevant certificates of other fees such as Extracurricular Activities (ECA), sports and others
In the reserved category, the name of the candidate and that of his parents must match the names on the relevant certificate for reservation. OBC candidates need to see if their caste is part of the central OBC list. As per the notification, income certificates for OBC and EWS categories should be issued after March 31, 2022.
This academic year, the Common Seat Allocation System portal will form a core part of admissions to DU affiliated universities. The process will be developed in three phases. Students will be required to apply through the CSAS-2022 application form available on the common portal once the portal is launched and make a one-time (non-refundable) payment at this stage of the application.
The second phase will begin once the results of the Common University Entrance Test (CUET) are declared. If the candidate is eligible for the desired program, they will be able to select the program and university combinations they prefer. The university has advised candidates to choose multiple combinations of programs and colleges, keeping in mind the order of preference. Once submitted, no changes can be made to preferences.
“The result should normally be declared within 10 days of the date of the last test,” the UGC chairman had earlier told The Indian Express.
The third phase is the allocation of seats, which will be done in several rounds. Once the merit list is declared, the candidate will have to check the seat and the assigned university on the common admission portal.
