Delhi writes to Education Ministry seeking amendment in DU Act

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said that he has written a letter to Union Ministry of Education seeking an amendment in Act to open new colleges and universities in Delhi.

He said, "Why are the admission cut-offs so high in Delhi?

It is so because there is a huge lack of colleges and universities in Delhi, while the number of students is increasing.

We need many more colleges and universities here." "The Delhi University Act made during the British era states that a new college needs to be affiliated with Delhi University.

I've written to the Minister of Education seeking to amend the Act so that new colleges and universities can be opened in Delhi," he said.
