“This will depend on the Centre releasing funds, which has not happened so far. Hopefully, by next year, some funds will have been received. But this year will be a stretch across the board,” Dean Students Welfare, Rajeev Gupta was quoted as saying.

“Hostel accommodation is anyway something that we have not been able to provide — only some 2-3% of admissions happen to hostels. The 54% student expansion, which was introduced with OBC reservation, has also not been accommodated. Only SC, ST and PWD students have been provided accommodation on a priority basis. As a result, we will not be able to prioritise the new group immediately,”. he further added.
