According to the The BHU spokespersons Rajesh Singh, a meeting of university authorities chaired by the vice chancellor Prof. Rakesh Bhatnagar was held on Monday to review the situation of teaching-learning of students in the classes and their stay in hostels in light of the rising cases of Covid-19 positive students in the hostels and the increasing number of positives cases in the hospital. The meeting was attended by the rector, directors of the institutes, deans of the faculties, coordinator of hostels, dean of students, chief proctor and other senior officers of the university.

The situation will be reviewed in the first week of April and decision would be notified on the university’s website. The parents/guardians would also be informed in this regard.
