St.Stephen's will have to follow DU admission process 2022 laid down by government: Officials

DU Admissions 2022: Delhi University has announced that St.Stephen's College will have to follow the rules that have been laid down by the government for admissions for the academic year 2022-23. This comes a day after the St. Stephen's college governing body decided to approach Supreme Court over the issue.

While speaking on the college governing body's decision, a senior varsity official said "the university will not back down and will defend its admission policy." On Tuesday, the governing body decided to challenge the recent Delhi High Court order on the admission process at the institution and seek ''interim relief'' to carry out this year's admissions through an interview process for candidates of all categories.

''We will defend our admission process and will not back down. The college will have to follow the admission process laid down by the government,'' DU Registrar Vikas Gupta said as reported by NDTV. The Delhi University and St Stephen's College have been at loggerheads over the admission policy for months now. Both of them have exchanged several letters in the past few months over their disagreement. 

St. Stephen's college has announced that it will give 85 per cent weightage to the CUET score and 15 per cent to physical interviews for ''all categories of candidates''. With the college refusing to do away with the interview process for admissions, the Delhi University has said it is ''firm'' on its decision to declare ''null and void'' all admissions made by the college in violation of the CUET guidelines.
