The Delhi High Court has ordered the Delhi University to build a campus in South West Delhi’s Najafgarh on the land which was allotted to the university in 1989.
A seven member panel has been constituted after orders from the court that would take care of the construction of the college and as well as an approach road towards the college. The bench has also directed the Centre and the National Highways Authority of India to get the approach road constructed as soon as the construction of the college begins.
These orders from the court came because of a Public Interest Litigation filed by the members of the Senior Citizens’ Association who have complained that the youngsters of their area have to travel for long distances to go to North/South campus colleges and carry out quality education. Thus, the association has asked to build a campus in that area with good set of colleges.
