The decision was taken after two meetings held by the dean of students welfare attended by principals and heads of department of various colleges affiliated to Delhi University.
The meeting discussed the graded entry of final year students as directed by the University Grants Commission. The UGC guidelines had suggested starting classes after November 5, 2020.
Dean of students welfare, Rajeev Gupta, said: “Both meetings had detailed discussions about UGC's guidelines dated November 5th 2020 which have considered the graded entry of the students back to their colleges and departments.”
The university officials also said that participation in the classes will be on a voluntary basis.
“DU will also slowly and carefully start allowing only final year students to their respective colleges and departments for their laboratory and practical classes in smaller groups. Their theory classes shall remain in the online mode. However, Students' entry will be absolutely voluntary,” he added.
