10% relaxation on eligibility at Delhi University for OBC students from this year

NEW DELHI: More students from the other backward class (OBC) category will be eligible to apply for admission to Delhi University this academic year. Implementing a 2011 Supreme Court order, the University shall now provide 10% relaxation on the minimum eligibility criteria to OBC candidates. This would be applicable to undergraduate and postgraduate courses from the 2012-13 session.

In a recent notification, the University stated that OBC candidates shall be given relaxation on the minimum eligibility in the qualifying criteria and in the minimum eligibility for the admission entrance test (if any) to the extent of 10% of the minimum eligibility prescribed for general candidates. For example, if the minimum eligibility for admission to a certain course is 50% for the general category, then the minimum eligibility criteria for OBC students would be 45%.

The University reserves 27% of its 54,000 seats for OBC candidates at the undergraduate level. Till last year, OBC applicants got 10% relaxation on the final cutoff for general candidates.
