Delhi University, (DU) to reopen from February 17 as announced by the DU Proctor Professor Rajni Abbi on Wednesday. Students were demanding to reopen the University and they protested against the closure of University when COVID-19 cases in Delhi are declining. Students are citing study loss and lack of practical exposure as the main reasons behind their demand to reopen colleges.
Amid DU reopening protests, Delhi University VC on Tuesday said that students are getting impatient as we are considering reopening the University but many factors are to be considered. He assured students to share a decision soon. He also said that if DDMA allows 100% strength the college will be reopened.
However, now as the DU proctor has announced to reopen the DU Colleges from February 17, further guidelines are awaited. Schools in Delhi are already open for Classes 9 and above and as the vaccination programme is geared up and the cases are declining, educational institutions are gradually reopening in the national capital.
