DU colleges to reopen soon 

The colleges in Delhi University will be reopened in a phased manner. Delhi University Vice-Chancellor PC Joshi on Wednesday said that a final decision on reopening colleges in a phased manner would be taken this week. The Vice-Chancellor also welcomed the standard operating procedures (SOP) by the Delhi Disaster Management Authority (DDMA).  "I welcome the DDMA advisory, it has helped us in re-opening the University in a phased manner," DU's vice-chancellor PC Joshi said. 

Further, Joshi said the varsity, which has students from across the country and even outside India, is looking into various options. "We'll have to contemplate on how they will be included. All those things have to be considered," the VC said. "We want to reopen soon, but we don't want to take a decision in haste. That might adversely affect students. I think we'll first allow third-year students and then further extend it when it works out well," Joshi said. As per the advisory, educational institutes are allowed to function at only 50 per cent capacity.

"We do not want to regret it (our decision to reopen) in the future and welcome the third wave. So systematically, keeping in mind the interest of students, we are slowly going to open the university and get back to offline mode of teaching," he said. The VC also informed that a final decision on phased the reopening would be taken in the next five to six days as the university has to plan on how to accommodate students from different states in the hostels. 'Everything needs to be considered,' he said.

Further, he said that the university would ensure that the students who plan to attend the offline mode of classes are vaccinated, and also informed that the vaccination of the DU teachers is almost complete.
