Shantanu Roy, dean academics, said onboarding of students into hostels will take place in a graded manner to ensure compliance with all safety measures and protocols.
“Over a period of time, if things remain well, we expect the DDMA (Delhi Disaster Management Authority) order to offer further relaxations. We will then start moving to actual classrooms. Not all courses will go offline immediately. Core courses in different disciplines will go offline first and the elective courses will be continued online,” he said.
Roy said that they were discussing plans of holding offline examinations in the future. However, a cap on 50 per cent occupancy in classrooms will continue at all times.
