DU warns newspapers over publishing fake news
Delhi University has warned newspapers over publishing fake news, using factually incorrect information about the University. The central university took exception to the newspaper reports which carried unverified and unauthentic content about DU Admissions and other aspect of the University.
“Everything you wanted to know about DU admissions is here. Predict your college, get latest updates, trends and insights on DU admissions. Click Here “
In a letter dated May 15, 2014, to the editor of leading newspaper The Times of India, AK Prakash, Deputy Registrar, School of Open Learning, DU, said, “The news article published by you today ‘The admission process of School of Open Learning (SoL) starts from May 27, 2014’ is factually incorrect and appears to be based on disinformation. I shall be grateful if this rejoinder is suitably published.”
This was not the first time Delhi University warned the newspapers against misleading people by misquoting the University officials in their news articles. In many other previous incidents of this year, DU officials have alleged that the news media is misguiding students and parents by delivering fake news for filling their space on print and web platforms.
On May 10, a report titled ‘Delhi University's management studies to have no entrance test’ was also misleading and lacked official quote. When Careers360 confirmed with the university, Dr. Gurpreet Singh Tuteja, Deputy Dean, Students Welfare mentioned, “It would be too early to comment about the cancellation of the exam. An Ad hoc Committee has proposed the cancellation of the exam but it is too early to make such an announcement.”
Earlier on May 1, in letters to various newspapers including Asian Age and Statesman, DU Registrar Alka Sharma slammed their act of publishing news articles titled “DU diverted OBC expansion funds to buy 62,000 laptops”, “DU diverted OBC expansion funds to buy laptops” and “Laptop row: DU teachers’ body seeks Central probe.” The official termed this as a disconcerting attempt to misinform the public and defame the University on the subject.

Earlier this year in February, the University officials sent threatening letters to the editors of The Times of India and The Hindu for allegedly delivering “prejudiced and unverified” news reports of Delhi University Teachers’ Association’s protest against four-year undergraduate programme (FYUP).

DU termed the news articles, titled “FYUP protest at DU Fest” and “DUTA’s protest against Antardhwani’s propaganda,” as biased and unverified reports. In the letters dated February 15, 2014, Registrar Alka Sharma said, “You (editors) are requested to note our concern without prejudice to any other action the University may contemplate.”
Delhi University introduced FYUP in 2013 for its undergraduate courses, replacing the earlier three-year programme.
Amid these controversies and criticism, 2014 admission process in the renowned University is beginning from June 2. The central university will be inviting a common OMR application form for admissions to 54,000 seats in 65 colleges. The last date for applications is June 16.
DU is likely to continue with 10 or more cut off lists under its 2014 undergraduate admission process which is scheduled to begin from June 2.
The University is scheduled to release the list of first 10 cut-offs in a window of 30 days beginning June 24. According to University officials, the dates of the release of DU’s 10 cut off lists are June 24, June 27, July 1, July 4, July 8, July 11, July 14, July 16, July 18 and July 21 respectively.
Delhi University is also conducting open day sessions to address queries of the prospective students and their parents regarding undergraduate admissions since May 21. The Open Days will continue till May 30.
