CHANDIGARH: Pan­jab Univer­sity on Tues­day de­cided to sus­pend teach­ing at the var­sity and its af­fil­i­ated col­leges till July 31.

Teach­ing at six con­stituent col­leges will also re­main sus­pended. PU reg­is­trar Karam­jeet Singh said, “The de­ci­sion was taken in view of the guide­lines is­sued by min­istry of home af­fairs for Un­lock 2.0.”

Ac­cord­ing to an or­der is­sued by the univer­sity, the chair­per­son of a depart­ment may call a fac­ulty mem­ber when they re­quire and only one-third of the non­teach­ing staff of the univer­sity can at­tend of­fice.

Also, in teach­ing de­part­ments, where num­ber of non-teach­ing em­ploy­ees is five or less, the chair­per­son may call more than 33% of the staff for duty de­pend­ing on re­quire­ment. Teach­ers of the univer­sity have been di­rected to con­tinue work from home. PU se­na­tor Ra­jat Sand­hir said, “It is a vi­able op­tion as it will pre­vent un­nec­es­sary move­ment of peo­ple.”
