However, no information has been provided on the reopening of campus yet. As per the recent update by PTI, the university officials have informed that the campus will not reopen until the DDMA allows 100 per cent seating capacity in the classes.
On reopening of campus, as reported by PTI, a senior Delhi University official on Tuesday said it cannot be reopened till the time the DDMA allows 100 per cent seating capacity. “How can we reopen until and unless the DDMA allows 100 per cent seating capacity. Sixty per cent of students of the university are from outside Delhi. We can’t ask them to come here, stay in a hostel and take online classes since only 50 per cent seating capacity is allowed,” Delhi University Registrar Vikas Gupta told PTI. Students and teachers have been demanding the reopening of campus.
