New Delhi:

Delhi University (Delhi University) on Monday wrote to St. Stephen’s College asking for admission to unreserved seats on the basis of CUET scores only. The university has also asked the college not to sub-categorize under the Christian community. This information has been given by a senior official. There has been a conflict between the college and the university since last month regarding giving 85 percent weightage to CUET and 15 percent to interview in relation to admission in the college.

The university has said that interviews should be conducted only for reserved category students. DU vice-chancellor Yogesh Singh said the university has written to the college that they have to comply with the executive council’s resolution to conduct admissions to general seats on the basis of CUET scores.

DU Registrar Vikas Gupta also confirmed the development. “We have written to them that for minority seats, 85 per cent weightage should be given to CUET scores and 15 per cent to interviews. We have also said that there should be no classification or sub-classification within the Christian community.

Being a minority institution, the college reserves 50 per cent of its seats for Christian candidates, until last year, of the seats earmarked for Christian students, 50 per cent were reserved for those belonging to the Church of North India, while the other half The Diocese of Delhi was filled by candidates belonging to the Church of North India. Officials said that the university will not allow the college to have its own separate counseling process.

The university had also sought legal opinion in this matter. An official said, “We had sought legal opinion to see if we are on a sound legal footing with our stand. Legal experts have supported our stand.”

In an admissions notice posted on its website last month, St Stephen’s College said it would give 85 per cent weightage to CUET scores and 15 per cent weightage to all categories of students interviewed. The college also stated that it reserves the right to proceed with the admission as per its admission policy guaranteed as a minority institution.
