DU ADMISSIONS: RESERVATION POLICY FOR EWS

As per the Delhi University Guidelines issued on 15th May 2019; 10% of admission seats have been reserved in DU for the EWS category in the academic year of 2020-21.

Economically Weaker Sections (EWS) are people belonging to the general category with a low annual income. (i.e below 8 lakhs) That means strictly not belonging to the SC/ST/OBC categories as explained by the government.

The preconditions for being recognised as a member of EWS category for getting advantage of the reservation in DU are as follows:

  • The candidate must submit his/her Income and asset certificate issued by the respective state government to the University’s administration. It serves as a proof of belonging to the EWS category for availing the benefit of reservation.
