DU allows PhD students to return to hostels in a phased manner – Times of India

NEW DELHI: The University of Delhi has allowed for the phased re-entry of its PhD students back to the hostels. In a notice issued on August 19, DU has advised its hostels to allow registered bona-fide PhD students to come back to the hostels in a phased manner. The PhD students are however to follow a mandatory 14-days self-quarantine in their respective hostel rooms after their return. The university has also cut down on electricity and water charges from students.

In their notice, DU stated that only after the PhD students fulfil the 14-day mandatory quarantine and get a screening at the University’s WUS Health Centre will they be allowed to attend their respective research laboratories.

PhD students will however have to provide evidence that they are visiting their respective research laboratories only in the form of a letter from their research supervisors.

The university also said that “it is very essential to interact with the hostel residents on a regular basis for an update on their difficulties and boost their morale. Therefore, Hostel Authorities are advised to devise a method to ensure the availability of at least one person for regular interaction with the residents.”

Alone with that hostel authorities have been asked that they may open Computer Room, TV Room, Library and Reading Room for the residents and arrange medicines and other essential items for them.

“Hostels are advised to minimize their running expenses towards staff in view of the very few residents actually living in the hostels. Hostels which are located within a common hostel complex or located very close by may opt for the centralized security, sanitation, and garden and office staff. And hostels with very few residents may arrange packed food or tiffin from the adjacent hostels.”

The hostels are also advised to not charge Mess Fees and only charge 50% of the monthly electricity and water charges from the residents for the entire duration of their absence from the hostel who vacated their rooms after DU’s March 18 notification before the lockdown began.

DU has also now allowed final year students to visit their hostel rooms to collect their belongings after they pay their dues and take the clearance from the hostel.

According to Gwyer Hall resident Prabhanjan Ahuja, “the notice is student-friendly as many PhD students have been stuck at their homes with no scope for studying or research. Allowing them to return is a welcome step that will help them get back to their research activities.”
