On Sunday, many Delhi University colleges witnessed chaotic scenes with several students of School of Open Learning (SOL) complaining about lack of enough space at the centres on the first day of the personal contact programme (PCP) classes and also the students complained about not receiving the study material.

Students alleged that a few colleges didn’t allow them to enter. According to Times of India, Shubham Tiwari, who reached Arts Faculty for political science classes, complained of “complete mismanagement.” He said that the “classrooms were stuffy as hundreds of students had to be accommodated in them. There was no proper planning and many students had to stand in the classroom. Nothing was taught due to the delay and only orientation was conducted”

Members of the Krantikari Yuva Sangathan (KYS) alleged that colleges like Hansraj and Satyawati didn’t conduct classes as no timetable had been prepared yet and that classes would begin from next week. Harish Gautam, a SOL student said “This was despite students receiving messages that classes will commence on September 1”

In response to this, CS Dubey, Director of SOL was quoted as saying, “Students were asked to return as most of them went to the venue that was not allotted to them. Some were late for classes, so the colleges didn’t allow them entry. We are working towards improving the situation and have planned to add more classrooms at 35 centres for the PCP classes. The study materials will be provided to students online by next week.”
