Delhi University not to reopen unless DDMA allows 100% seating capacity

 

Despite the fact that the University began laboratory sessions for final year UG students, attendance has been very low, and students and teachers alike call for the campus to be reopened to all.

 

Despite several protests and demands from various student groups, the varsity has chosen not to open the campus to all students until DDMA provides for 100 percent seating capacity.

 

The officials stated that a meeting will be held in 10 days to make additional decisions on this matter.

 

The university highlighted the fact that more than 60% of its students come from other states. As a result, they cannot make a hasty judgment and encourage students to take online lessons while sitting in their hostels and PGs, because the DDMA only allows for 50% seating capacity.

 

He stated that they cannot make a decision on full reopening unless the District Disaster Management Authority (DDMA) issues clear rules on 100% seating capacity.
