The centralized online admission process of DU has helped save anywhere between 4500 to 5000 trees of average size. To know how, consider reading further.
The statement that DU’s online admission process helped save anywhere between 4500 and 5000 trees might sound false to you and many may consider it an exaggeration. But, trust me, it’s true and the number of trees cut would have been even more than what we mentioned in the header above had DU admission process not gone online from this year onward.
Call it the need of the hour or a solution to simplify managing the paperwork for DU employees, but the online admission process has killed proverbial two, rather three, birds with one stone. Now you can, again, scream exaggeration! Well, want to know how, let me explain.
First, the online process ended the hassles of students who otherwise have to run from one college to another and fall in line many times a day to buy application forms, deposit the fee and finally, submit the filled forms. Submitting applications for DU admission was a breeze this year, thanks again to the online process of Delhi University.
Secondly, it helped students save a considerable time, money, efforts and resources that they otherwise have to invest in reaching out to colleges in person and fill in the form. This would have required them to use their own vehicles or hire ones as per their needs, which would have added more to the pollution. The online admission process proved to be the real saviour and allowed students to submit application form and fee from the convenience of their home. The online process also gave them an option to apply for multiple colleges through one online application form and platform.
Thirdly, had the DU admission process not been online, it would have consumed approximately 72,000 or more rims of paper. In the lack of online admission process, DU would have needed around 4 lakh prospectuses which would have further included four crore pages approximately. This means, the online process has saved anywhere between 4500 and 5000 trees of average size. If you agree, we would love to hear from you in the comments.
