  2. The total number of seats to be allocated to ECA is decided based on the facilities available, the requirement of the colleges and other relevant factors.

  4. The candidate seeking admission under ECA Quota is required to register online on the University of Delhi UG Admission portal.
  5. The allotment of program and College to the candidate on the basis of ECA will be done in a centralized manner by the University through a centralized ECA Merit List and based on the preferences of Colleges and programs indicated by the applicant. The allotment will be based on the rank of the applicant in the order of centralized ECA Merit List, program-specific eligibility criteria, the availability of program and ECA Quota/sub-Quota in the College.
  6. Additional information regarding the schedule of ECA admissions and ECA Seat Matrix for Undergraduate Admissions 2021-2022 will be notified on the University of Delhi Admission website. The candidates are requested to keep checking the DU website regularly for further guidelines and other admission related information for admission under ECA Quota..
