Students aspiring to study forensic sciences can now apply at Delhi University as the university has introduced the course this academic year, an official said. However, the academic council is yet to give its approval on how many and which colleges will have this course. The University of Delhi is trying to make the course available in three or four colleges. Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur Khalsa College has already been given the approval.
“The course has been introduced by the vice chancellor after he was told that there is dearth of forensic scientists and experts in para-military forces in the country,” Malay Neerav, Delhi University joint dean of students welfare and media co-ordinator, said at a press conference. The option of choosing the course is also available in the optical mark registration (OMR) form. However, a star mark says conditions apply.
