“How can we reopen until and unless the DDMA allows 100 percent seating capacity. 60 percent of students of the university are from outside Delhi. We can’t ask them to come here, stay in a hostel and take online classes since only 50 percent seating capacity is allowed,” Delhi University Registrar Vikas Gupta told PTI. There is no official notification but the classes are expected to resume soon if the Covid situation remains under control.
