The proctorial staff of Allahabad University on Saturday
undertook an intensive identity cards checking drive on the campus. Many students
were caught without the ID cards.
The drive has initiated at the time when there has been influx of freshers at varsity's
four academic campuses i.e. Arts, Science, Commerce and Law. Although the freshers
are arriving in all these campuses, authorities are extra vigilant in terms of Arts
and Science faculties.
On the arts campus, the proctorial team caught a group of students near the English
and education departments. Similarly, some students were caught near the Sanskrit
department who were not in possession of their identity cards.
"We have appealed to all new comers as well as senior students to carry I-cards
on the campus. Those caught without the I-cards will be penalised," said AU chief
proctor Prof Jata Shankar. The checking drive is also aimed at keeping a watch on
outsiders, especially those who find an easy access in the science faculty, he added.
Meanwhile, the chief proctor has also given strict warning to all the students to
park the bicycles and two-wheelers in the parking lots. He said two-wheelers parked
at other places would be seized by the university, to be released only after paying
The authorities also caught a student of Allahabad Degree College on the
campus. He was however let off after a stern warning.
