The fact that Delhi University (DU) students had to temporarily vacate hostel rooms to accommodate delegates during the Commonwealth Games has led to an increase in the demand for paying guests (PG) accommodations in areas around different colleges, both in the North and South Campus.

However, while finding the monthly PG rates in town, HT City discovered a new phenomenon. Traditionally, PGs in South Campus have been more expensive because, well, it is South Delhi. But this year, PGs in North Campus have higher rates.

General facilities offered to paying guests
24-hrs running cold and hot water
Drinking water
Attach bathrooms
Wi Fi Facility
Optional, higher rates for AC rooms

Weird conditions laid down by PG owners
“It is a girls’ PG. Men aren’t allowed. Not even your dad.”
“We provide meals and you will have to take the meals.”
“Water will run for a certain time and after that we’ll stop it.”
“There’s a deadline for returning to our PG. If you don’t return by the deadline without informing us in advance, then better stay out and yes, we will inform your parents.”
