Relenting on the demand of research scholars, Panjab University (PU) on Thursday reopened the varsity’s AC Joshi library for them at 50% capacity.

For now, only research scholars have been allowed access to the library, which was closed last month due to the surge in Covid-19 cases.

The university said scholars will be allowed entry only with ID proof, no outsider will be allowed to sit in the library and all Covid protocols have to be followed.

Practical exam schedule extended

Panjab University also extended the schedule of practical examinations of even semester students up to June 30 instead of the earlier June 26. The practical exams will begin on June 15 in online mode.
