"We will be closed for admissions to Political Science (Honours), History (Honours), Hindi (Honours), BA programme, Philosophy (Honours), etc and almost all the science courses.

Dr Kalpana Bhakuni, principal of Kamala Nehru College, said the picture will be clearer once the final payments are made. "Every year shows a different trend and this year, we are seeing that the seats for reserved categories are filling up quite fast in our college while there is slow movement on the unreserved seats. We hope that the unreserved seats will be filled up in the second and third cut-off lists," she said.
The college has seen a high number of admissions to Political Science(Honours), Economics(Honours), Mathematics(Honours), Sociology(Honours), Hindi(Honours) with these courses being closed in all probability in the reserved category and some seats remaining in the unreserved category.
