University Grants Commission’s new rules for admission to the M.Phil. And Ph.D.
courses at Delhi University are likely to result in vacant seats in many departments
this year. The rules mandate that the aspirants from all categories must pass the entrance exam with 50 per cent marks to be eligible for the interviews of M.Phil. And
Ph.D. courses from the current academic year.

The rules have left many departments like Modern Indian Languages and Literary Studies in lurch with no SC, ST students qualifying for the admissions. Departments like History, Botany and Psychology are also facing the same crisis. The rules were adopted by Delhi University in its Academic and Executive Councils in 2017.

An overview of the seats filled suggests that out of 30 seats for Ph.D. in history, only
three students, including one OBC candidate, have qualified for the interviews. The
department is still left with 27 vacant seats. Similarly, the department could not fill all
25 seats in its M.Phil. Course. While 13 general candidates qualified for interviews,
only two SC, two OBC and one ST student could pass the test with marks above the
benchmark.

Modern Indian Languages department is facing unprecedented crunch of aspirants
with many seats remaining vacant in its Ph.D. programme. Out of 35 seats in PhD
course, only seven general category students along with one OBC student have
been able to pass the test. Even though it has reserved.
