New Delhi: Amidst ongoing debate related to quota for EWS sections in education and jobs, Delhi University has decided to allow students from economically weaker sections to opt for 100 per cent fee waiver. This is to “ensure the extension of benefits of equity, access and quality with excellence to everyone,” an official said on Wednesday.

“The University of Delhi celebrates diversity and is deeply committed to holistic and inclusive education. Understanding the need for affirmative actions as mandated in the Constitution of India and to extend the benefits of equity, access and quality with excellence, both in letter and spirit, to the financially weak students, it proposes to begin a financial support scheme,” the DU official told PTI.

The scheme is in keeping with the spirit of the government’s “Sabka Sath Sabka Vikas” motto, he said.

A full-time bona fide student studying in the university is eligible to apply for it. Students with ER (essential repeat) and arrears of previous examination papers are not eligible to apply.
