A large number of final year students at SPPU and those who have passed out have not yet taken their luggage and other personal effects out of the rooms. Many rooms are locked and now a notice with a final ultimatum to vacate the rooms by the end of this month has been given to students
PUNE After the state government allowed colleges and universities to reopen campuses for students, as of October 22, offline lectures began at several colleges in the city.
To prepare accommodation for students arriving after the Diwali holiday, Savitribai Phule Pune University (SPPU) has asked 400 students to immediately remove their belongings and vacate the hostel rooms.
A large number of final year students and those who have passed out have not yet taken their luggage and other personal effects out of the rooms. Many rooms are locked and now a notice with a final ultimatum to vacate the rooms by the end of this month has been given to students. Students who will not bring their belongings or their luggage will find the luggage at the hostel’s luggage storage if the deadline is not respected.
Currently, a majority of students are still in their villages and hometowns for the Diwali holidays and will not return to Pune until after the festival. The students have requested an extension of this deadline.
Kiran Waghmare, a final year student said: âI am ready to take my luggage, but I can only come after the Diwali holidays in Pune. Considering this request from most of the students, the SPPU should grant us an extension. “
SPPU Registrar Prafulla Pawar said: âWe have already given students enough time and several notices to vacate their rooms, but many students still have not taken their bags. After Diwali, the new student admissions for the hostel will begin and for this our preparations are continuing. Now, for the remaining students, we have published this circular, and if there is any problem, they can contact us and we will surely help and cooperate with them.
