The Delhi University is likely to reopen its campuses after Diwali. A decision in this regard will be taken after reviewing the ongoing Covid 19 cases in the city. It was said by the Delhi University, Vice Chancellor, Yogesh Singh on Tuesday.

The university will also increase the timings of the colleges to accommodate the extra number of students and avoid overcrowding.

The Delhi University has started its laboratory classes for final year undergraduate and postgraduate students from September 16. In fact, a minimum number of students are attending the laboratory classes as of now.

“We will decide after Diwali. There is a fear that Covid might recur. If the situation remains fine, we will think,” Singh told a news agency.

He added, “We can increase the timing of the existing colleges by a couple of hours, which could lead to the addition of more sections. This can help in adjusting the extra seats created and the EWS seats. This will be better than opening new colleges.”

“In Delhi Technological University (where Singh was the VC earlier), we had kept the timings from 8 am to 6 pm, which was helpful. In case it is done, the staff will come in a staggered manner and the teachers who have classes in the latter half of the day can come late. This was a suggestion in case colleges want to do it,” he said.
