While DU has no plan to reopen its campus, demands for resuming offline teaching-learning are on a rise.
Yesterday, students campaigned on social media to reopen the Delhi University. Members of the Delhi University Unit of the All India Students’ Association (AISA) had also protested outside the Vice-Chancellor’s office.
On reopening the campus, DU registrar Vikas Gupta had told PTI, "We have an executive council meeting on August 31 and we will plan after that and hold a meeting. We won't be able to resume from September 1. Whenever we open, we will first open for Science students." An official confirmation from the university is awaited.
DU had earlier decided to reopen for Science stream students from August 16 but the decision had been deferred.
Many states have reopened educational institutions today, including colleges and universities, for offline classes. In Delhi, schools for Classes 9-12 students reopened on September 1 after months
