New Delhi: Even after the fifth cut-off list released by Delhi University (DU) on Wednesday, the general category seats for the most demanding courses like commerce and economics are still available in main campus DU colleges. The seats for commerce course are up for grabs in 24 DU colleges including Kirori Mal and Hans Raj in North Campus and Gargi, Kamala Nehru and College of Vocational Studies among off-campus colleges.
