Delhi University may come up with a seventh cutoff in order to make its admission figures proportionate in tune with the reservation policy and statutory guidelines for undergraduate courses (UG).

Since, a lot of seats are vacant against cancellation in various colleges. So to fill those vacant seats Seventh cutoff is mandatory.

According to the university officials the seventh cutoff may come within 4-5 days. As we know that according to the reservation norms seats in various colleges are limited for specific courses. In order to fill the vacant seats, cutoff‘s are released.

Colleges often exceed their sanctioned strength in various courses, admitting students over and above it. The admissions, made above the sanctioned strength, create an imbalance in the overall figures which no more comply with the reservation norms.

Every year, it was noticed that some students may leave there seat vacant to take admission in any other college or university, some may go abroad for further studies. Some students who have cleared DU ‘s entrance based examination may leave there seat vacant in merit based undergraduate admission  and prefer moving to those courses.

Delhi University already came up with 6 cutoffs whereas university told to release only 5 cutoffs. Cutoff’s are released to fill the vacant seats in various colleges.

In Delhi University, 22.5% of seats are reserved for applicants belonging to Scheduled Caste (SC) and Scheduled Tribes (ST). Out of which 15 percent is for the Scheduled Caste (SC) and seven and half percent for Scheduled Tribes (ST), interchangeable, if necessary).

It is a statutory obligation on the part of Colleges to fill all seats reserved for Scheduled Caste / Scheduled Tribe applicants. While seventy seven percent of the seats are reserved for the applicant’s belonging to the Other Backward Classes (OBC).
