The Delhi University is in the way of launching two new colleges that will be affiliated to Delhi University at the outskirts of the national capital. The two colleges are work in progress in Roshanpura and Fatehpur Biri. This initiative will bring the rural students one step closer to education from top-notch Delhi University affiliated colleges.
The proposal of establishing these new colleges has been passed from DU’s Building and Work Committee, says Delhi University’s acting Vice-Chancellor Professor PC Joshi. Furthermore, he added that the possible expenditures have been overlooked and been settled. Now, the University will approach the government for the grant. As soon as the university receives a green signal, the construction of the infrastructure is set off to begin this year itself.
The opening of college in the outskirts of Delhi has a central focal point of connecting students and encouraging education. PC Joshi also informed that the establishment of academic departments and units in the DU campus is also being considered.
In addition to uplifting the education sector, these colleges will be specially focused on girl education. Joshi said that education for girls is still a hindrance for girls in India. He added that it is often difficult for girl students to come to the main campus from the rural areas and stay in hostels. Moreover, there are not many DU colleges in the outer regions of Delhi other than Aditi Mahavidyalaya College in Bawana and Swami Shraddhanand College in Alipur. Moreover, Joshi asserted that University’s vacant land in Fatehpur Beri is near Gurgaon – Faridabad road. Whereas the land in the Roshanpura area is near Najafgarh
The initiation of opening two colleges in rural areas has a vision of providing education facilities to the young aspirants and making them responsible citizens. The university seeks to equip them with basic undergraduate and postgraduate degrees which are essential qualifications for diverse career options.
