Gurudwara panel’s DU college on anvil

Delhi Sikh Gurudwara Management Committee, which owns various educational institutes in the city, on Friday said the infrastructure of its new degree college in the national capital is ready but is awaiting clearance from the Delhi University to start functioning.

‘Our new college infrastructure is ready in West Delhi. It can accommodate up to 700 students in an academic session.

We will start enrolling students as soon as we get permission from DU,’ DSGMC President Paramjeet Singh Sarna told reporters here.

Sarna was speaking on the occasion of 60th anniversary of Shri Guru Teg Bahadur Khalsa (SGTBK) College, a constituent of DU. DSGMC Senior Vice President Bhajan Singh Walia said that the new college has the capacity to offer similar courses as SGTBK College.

‘We run many colleges in Delhi. The management will put faculty in place as soon as we get permission,’ Walia said.

Siromani Akali Dal Delhi Youth President Damandeep Singh Sarna said DSGMC has no shortage of funds for starting the college.

‘We will readily invest Rs 4 to 5 crore for all amenities that will be required for the new college,’ Damandeep said.

However, DU Vice Chancellor Dinesh Singh, who was the Guest of Honour on the occasion, did not comment on the status of permission to the new college but appreciated the infrastructure of SGTBK college and efforts being made by DSGMC to spread education. Singh along with office bearers of DSGMC, on the occasion inaugurated a girls hostel, new administrative and science block, sport facility at SGTBK College campus.

‘Mata Gujri Hostel for girls has capacity to accommodate up to 150 girls. It was very important to provide safe and comfortable accommodation to outstation girl students of the college,’ SGTBK College Chairman Harvinder Singh Sarna said.

Sarna also laid foundation stone of a new library on the campus. ‘The library will be accessible to students beyond college hours,’ SGTBK College Principal Jarwinder Singh said.
