The Jawaharlal Nehru University announced on Sunday that all final-year M.Phil students who are required to submit their thesis by 30 June will be allowed in the campus from 8 March.

In addition to this, all third-year PhD students of the science stream students, and Bachelor's and Master's students of PWD category who require access to the laboratory and other facilities can go to the campus from Monday, the deputy registrar of the university said in a notification.

The university has also allowed all authorised canteens in the campus -- with the exception of 'Mual Darbar' and '24X7 food court -- to reopen with immediate effect. The railway counter can also resume services now with strict adherence to all Covid-19 precautionary guidelines.

The move is part of the phased reopening plan by the university.

Students allowed earlier

Prior to the recent notification, the university had earlier this month allowed fourth semester MPhil and MTech students of its science school and special centre, as well as final semester MBA students, both day-scholars and hostel residents, to return to campus.

The B R Ambedkar Central Library of the university also announced the partial resumption of service.

Entry of NCC Girls Cadets was also allowed as their physical presence is required for their NCC 'B' Certificate.

The facility of e-autorickshaw began inside the campus too.

The university has started classes for fourth-year PhD, MSc, MCA students. It had also reopened the sports complex for "walking and running purposes" only, and the canteen of Aravali Guest House and the India Coffee House for "takeaway facility".

All educational institutions across the country had shut in March last year due to the outbreak of Covid-19.
