There was an addition of 6000 seats after the implementation of the Economically Weaker Section (EWS) reservation in the Delhi University.  Despite this, several colleges have went beyond their maximum capacity of admitting students, leading to a severe infrastructural crunch.  This phenomenon of over-admissions had been existing in the University since the last couple of years, yet this year's increase was totally unmatched.  Numerous measures are being taken by the college authorities to accomodate the excess number of students.
