Engineering Single-Girl-Child Families
In an initiative to denounce female feticide and encourage single girl child within families, Delhi Technological University (DTU), formerly Delhi College of Engineering, has decided to earmark one seat over and above the sanctioned intake in all its undergraduate engineering programmes, for single girl child in a family.
The Academic Council of the university took this decision, which will be applicable on all the 14 BTech courses of the university from the academic session starting 2011 and thus, 14 seats will be made available for single girl child. However, the eligibility criteria for admission for female students falling under this category will be the same as for other students and admissions will be granted on the basis of merit. (Source … )
