In the latest update on Delhi University reopening, the DU registrar Vikas Gupta said that a decision on resuming physical classes will be taken after holding an internal meeting. He also said that the university was not ready to reopen from September 1. Whenever the colleges reopen, science students will be called first, he added.
Meanwhile, students have been requesting to reopen the university on social media. #reopendu was trending on Twitter. Students also used the hashtags to share the difficulties faced by them due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The university was shut since March last year. This year in February, final year students were allowed to return to colleges for accessing labs and take practical classes. However, the classes were suspended again in April due to the second wave of Covid-19.
The Delhi University had issued an official notification in August announcing that it would hold physical classes for Science stream students in view of a decline in coronavirus cases, however, it later deferred its decision.
