The movement of outsiders in the Campus shall not be allowed under any circumstances.

Since the COVID restrictions have not been lifted completely by the District Administration, the employees residing in the campus, including their families and students/scholars residing in the hostels shall take all precautions, follow SOPs strictly and restrict their movement outside the campus. However, in case it is absolutely necessary to move out, the Dean Students Welfare shall issue passes to the employees, valid for 7 days for facilitating the movement.

While the University is taking adequate measures for the safety and health of all its employees, it is expected that employees also conduct themselves in a responsible way by following COVID-19 Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) and COVID appropriate restrictions for their own safety, as well as the safety of their families, their colleagues and the Society at large. The respective Controlling Officers shall ensure that safety measures including social distancing norms are followed in letter and spirit.
