The colleges of the University of Delhi will gradually reopen. Delhi University Vice Chancellor PC Joshi said on Wednesday that a final decision on the gradual reopening of colleges would be made this week. The Vice Chancellor also praised the Delhi Disaster Management Authority (DDMA) standard operating procedures (SOP). “I welcome the DDMA advice, it has helped us to reopen the university gradually,” said DU vice-chancellor PC Joshi.
Additionally, Joshi said the university, which has students from all over the country and even outside India, is exploring various options. “We will have to think about how they will be included. All of these things need to be taken into account,” said the VC. “We want to reopen soon, but we don’t want to rush a decision. It might hurt the students. I think we’ll allow third year students first, then expand it further when it works well,” Joshi mentioned. According to the opinion, educational institutions are only allowed to operate at 50 percent of their capacity.
âWe don’t want to regret it (our decision to reopen) in the future and welcome the third wave. So systematically, keeping the interest of the students in mind, we will slowly open the university and return to the d ‘offline education, “he said. The VC also informed that a final decision on the phased reopening will be made within the next five to six days, as the university needs to plan how to accommodate students from different states in hostels. âEverything has to be taken into account,â he said.
In addition, he said the university will ensure that students who plan to take the offline mode of lessons are vaccinated, and also informed that the DU teachers’ vaccination is almost complete.
