Prior to that, Delhi University announced a hiatus as part of a special campaign on November 13. The university had not shared admission data for the list.

Applicants who have not been able to apply for admission or who have canceled their admission to one of the colleges of the university during any of the previous cut-off periods and therefore have not been admitted but comply with the one of the above limits and Special Drive-I, may be considered for admission under the Special Drive-II, provided that seats are available in that category, in accordance with the guidelines.
“No movement will be allowed during the special race. Candidates who have obtained admission to any of the previous five stages (including the special cut / training-I) will not be allowed to participate in the special race – II, which means applicants who are already admitted to a university program at Delhi University will not be eligible to participate in the Special Campaign. Therefore, cancellation options for applicants will be suspended during the Special Campaign ” , said the university.
If the number of applicants applying for a particular program at a college is greater than the number of places available, the colleges will draw up a merit list according to the best of four / three required for the program. The college will approve the application solely on the basis of merit and seat availability. The list of approved applicants will be uploaded to the respective college’s website, the guidelines say.
