Delhi University reopened its doors for undergraduate and postgraduate courses from Thursday, February 17. Considering the overall decline in COVID-19 cases across the country, the decision can be seen as a welcome move.
University officials had announced the reopening of UG and PG classes on February 9, 2022. Several students had also protested outside the university and demanded resumption of offline classes.
