According to the V-C, the university authority has taken the decision to start the class at the campus of Balurghat College for the first semester students as the new building of the university is under construction.
"We will shift our campus from the Balurghat College to its new building immediately after the completion of the construction work. The students will take admission from September. The class will start in October at Balurghat College campus if the pandemic situation improves otherwise the class will start through an online system," she said.
