“Construction of high-rise residential structure in campus area would be detrimental to development of our university… it would directly infringe upon privacy of the women’s hostels in close proximity to the land, and would prejudice security of students…,” the letter says.

Meghdoot Hostel, Miranda House women’s hostel, PG women’s hostel and CIE hostels stand a few meters away from the land next to Vishwavidyalaya Metro Station where the high-rise building is about to be constructed.

Who will ensure safety, sanctity of university campus if this building is built?… Environment clearance is under challenge and SLP is pending,” said Bipin Tiwari. 

Varsha Joshi, North body commissioner has mentioned they have followed rules while granting permission: “There were some technical changes in the builder’s previous application dictated by the new building bylaws being notified… The builder made necessary amendments, applied afresh and was granted permission. There’s no stay from any court against the construction.” 

Even after stating a plea to the supreme court, the issue between the private builder and varsity remains unsettled.
