The students of Delhi University have for long complained about the crumbling infrastructure in their colleges. Everyone who is part of the University is now very much acclimatized to the unquestionably lacking infrastructure in the colleges. However, it seems, the University Grants Commission wants to turn this dismal picture around.
Representatives of the UGC have been doing the rounds of DU colleges surveying the condition of infrastructure and have been accepting suggestions from the student bodies, teachers and administrators to alter the same. The assessment was done to determine the magnitude of funds which would be allocated to each college to go ahead with the infrastructural upgrades. The colleges that were visited under this scheme include Jesus and Mary College, Lady Shri Ram College, St. Stephen’s College, Hindu College, Kirori Mal College and Ramjas College, among others.
JMC conveyed to the UGC the need for making the college campus more disabled friendly by constructing ramps. They also require internet facilities, more classrooms and a hostel for outstation students. LSR pointed out the lack of wireless facility, a video library, a cooling system for the hostel, rooms for extracurricular activities or for societies to practice, Hindi books in the library, funding for the new sports journalism course and proper stage lighting; St Stephen’s College asked for more classrooms, better equipment for the science laboratories and wireless facility, among other things. Similar requests were made by Hindu College, Ramjas College and Kirori Mal College. The grant for each college is expected to go up to a few crores. All these colleges are awaiting the final report of the UGC which shall finalize the grant.

Journalism has been called the “first rough draft of history”. D.U.B may be termed as the first rough draft of DU history. Freedom to Express.
