Indore: Citing rise in coronavirus cases, Devi Ahilya Vishwavidyalaya (DAVV) on Tuesday suspended all infrastructure projects till the situation comes under control.

The executive council of the DAVV, in its maiden meeting, put aside proposals recommended by building committee for infrastructure development.

The committee had recommended construction projects including separate building for School of Social Science, and expansion of School of Chemistry, and School of Economics.

EC member Mangal Mishra objected to projects saying that Department of Higher Education (DHE) is gearing up for conduct of physical classes from December 1. “In such a situation when students would be on campus, construction activities will lead to suspended particles in the air which can cause lung related complications among students,” he said.

Going by his advice, the EC not only brushed aside the recommendation by building committee but also stated that construction activities, if any underway, should be stopped till coronavirus cases do not shot down.

The EC meeting, which was held after a gap of nearly one-and-a-half-year, discussed around 30 issues on the agenda.

It gave approval to most of the issues.

Table agenda on rector issue set aside

Vice chancellor Prof Renu Jain put forth a table agenda for appointment of Prof Ashok Sharma as rector (Pro-Vice Chancellor) but some members objected it. The members stated that they had no objection on the name of Sharma for the post but the appointment on rector post should not be done through table agenda. Later it was decided that the matter will be brought up for approval in the next meeting as part of main agenda.
