The residential students concerned will be able to enter their respective halls from 8am on 5 October. Officers/employees providing various services to the students also have to keep the vaccination certificate with them.
According to the decision of the syndicate meeting, in order to increase health awareness, there will be banners/festoons in every residential hall of the university and visible place in the academic building, displaying the hygiene rules.
Subject to vaccination, the residential halls will be opened for honours 1st, 2nd and 3rd year students in phases. Only regular residential students will be accommodated in the halls in accordance with the hygiene rules.

Students who have not yet registered for vaccination have been asked to register at the centre by 27 September with National Identity Card/Birth Registration Certificate and get vaccinated.
