The Panjab University started a pilot programme to regulate traffic at gate number 1 of the campus on Wednesday.

Two lanes were created on the Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (PGIMER) side gate.

Vehicles with PU passes were given entry through one lane while other vehicles were given entry post-checking through the second lane.

The pilot project continued for two hours in the morning at the gate, which was monitored by senior PU officials.

The project is aimed at easing traffic congestion on the gates and increasing scrutiny of vehicles belonging to outsiders. “Vehicles with valid passes will not have to wait on the gates while other vehicles will undergo strict checking,” a PU official said. Dean student welfare Navdeep Goyal said the project would continue for a couple of days. “Based on the results, the project will be analysed later. If it is successful, we will make it a permanent feature,” he said.PU authorities on Wednesday also ordered printing of 7000 passes for distribution among faculty members, students and others.
