On June 9,IS Bakshi,Morning college Principal wrote to the Evening college Principal saying, “With reference to your mention of few temporary rooms at the earmarked site, it is to apprise that the site in question is part of mandatory 12-metre wide rear set back, and land earmarked for playground by Land & Development Office, Urban Development Ministry, and the college layout and building plans have been approved by SDMC accordingly.”

On July 3, he wrote to the DU Pro Vice Chancellor saying that the set back area was “crucial for access of the college by emergency services”, and that “construction is being carried out in violation of approved layout and building plans”. P K Parihar, a geography teacher of DSC (Morning), said, “It is an illegal structure. Even if it was legal, till the time you get a fitness certificate you cannot open it to public. They’re calling it a semi-permanent structure, but pucca material is being used for the same.”

Alka Tyagi, an English teacher, said, “The part where construction is taking place is separate from where classes are being held, so it’s not unsafe. But the noise is definitely a problem.” Sharma, however, said construction was complete and “only finishing work like painting is going on”.
