Delhi University To Announce 1st Cut Off List For UG Programmes Today

The Delhi University is all set to announce the 1st cut-off list for undergraduate programmes today, i.e. 1st October 2021. All colleges under DU will release separate cut-off lists on their official website – one for science, commerce, humanities, and BA programmes. Principles of some DU colleges have indicated that the 1st cut-off could go as high as touching 100% to avoid over-admission on the limited number of seats that every DU college has. Vibha Chauhan, the principal of Kirori Mal College, said: “There are students who have scored cent per cent marks and we might have to keep the cut-offs at 100 per cent,” However, Miranda House principal Dr Bijaylaxmi Nanda said: “We won’t have 100 per cent cut-offs. The cut-offs will be slightly calibrated than last time. The cut-offs will be close to 100, but we will be realistic with them,” Based on the response of 1st cut-off list, Delhi University plans to release 5 cut-off lists this year. The admission process of DU will start on 4th October at 10 am and end on 7th October at 7 pm. If seats remain vacant, Delhi University colleges will release their 2nd and 3rd cut-off lists on 9th October and 16th October, respectively.

Delhi Faces Alcohol Shortage Amid Closing Down Of 260 Private Liquor Shops

As Delhi’s new liquor regime takes shape, the national capital is facing an alcohol shortage. As per the new regime, 260 privately-run liquor shops  have been shut down from Thursday, and only 600 government-run shops will operate till 16th November. In the new rule, the government will make an exit from the liquor business and has given all licenses to private parties, allowing them to run 850 alcohol stores in 32 zones. The new liquor shops are expected to be spacious and modern as opposed to the government-run liquor shops. The 45-day transition period will be a challenge for both the government and customers due to problems in demand and supply chain. However, the government has instructed the state-run liquor shops to keep sufficient stocks for the 45-day transition period. On Thursday, the government released a statement: “We expect that in a situation where sufficient supply is maintained, crowding or any other incidents will not take place. We want to reassure the public that they do not need to hoard or rush to stores in this situation as all government-owned shops will continue to function. Delhi government is putting its best foot forward to ensure that the residents do not face much of a problem,”

However, she filed domestic violence against Kohli in 2019, claiming that her husband hit her daughter Palak Tiwari under an intoxicated state, among other allegations. Abhinav Kohli, who is happy with the court’s decision, said: “Yes, the news is true. It is a huge relief for me. I have been fighting a tough and long battle. I haven’t met my son for 11 months now; I will finally meet him. I can’t express my happiness in words. This is just the beginning, and there’s a long way to go. I would like to thank Honorable Justice Shri S S Shinde and Honorable Justice Shri N.J. Jamadar for granting me access. I wish I could meet him daily; I am getting greedy as a father, I know, but I will struggle for it also. This is not a victory for me; it is my son Reyansh victory. He has won between Shweta and my fight. Reyansh will get to meet his father.” Shweta Tiwari’s reaction to the court’s decision is still awaited.
