After the implementation of OBC quota and admissions beyond capacity in the general category, colleges are generally left with little space in classrooms and labs. Though the grants were given in 2008-09, many colleges are awaiting clearance from civic agencies to begin construction. A few others can’t alter their buildings as these are heritage structures. So colleges have been forced to extend working hours. SRCC has 25 rooms and 2,500 students. The college cannot build another floor to maintain the permitted floor area ratio. So, it has increased the number of lectures to accommodate all students.
Earlier classes were held till 1.00 pm. Now they go on till four in the evening, said principal P. C. Jain. Implementation of the 27% OBC quota began in phases in 2008 and was completed in 2010. Colleges were given a grants to the tune of 8 to 10 crore to make room for more students as the total number of seats were increased to keep the existing space for the general category unchanged. However, proposals for expanding infrastructure are stuck in red tape. We sent the plans for the third floor to MCD last year. Their approval is still awaited, said Ira Pandit, the senior-most faculty member at Daulat Ram College. Pradyumn Kumar, principal, Hindu College, added that the college is waiting for an environmental agency’s nod to begin work on a new academic block. Our existing building is located close to Bara Hindu Rao which is a heritage site. We have instead planned to construct a new academic block. National Monument Authority approved it last year. The proposal was sent to Delhi Pollution Control Committee six months ago. We will have to hire an environment consultant before getting the clearance, Singh said. A college cannot refuse admission to any eligible student even if they overshoot capacity.
