By seeing the past history of both universities, one will understand that both are standard universities with an excellent track records. We can't say one is better than the other in all the fields. I feel Delhi University is the best for science subjects where as JNU is good for humanities and languages.

The best will be different for different subjects and areas. So a student should study the university record in the subject he/she is going to join and then take a decision.

For a student who wants to pursue Chemistry, I feel, the University of Delhi is a better option. Similarly, for some other subjects, JNU may be the best. So In my opinion first decide on the degree then study the track record of both the university for thst degree and then take a call.
