presi: Presi invites applications for Salt Lake Girls’ Hostel | Kolkata News
Last month, students – boys and girls – entered their respective homes without the green light from university authorities and moved into the rooms.
According to the students, offline classes had started, but most distant students did not have accommodation in the city because the university was not initiating the process. University authorities said preparations were incomplete as the Eden Hindu Hostel for boys and girls in Salt Lake did not have a superintendent or assistant superintendent.
Education Minister Bratya Basu had ordered university authorities to speed up the process.
“We have released the form and invited applications from female students to begin. The deadline to apply for the boarding school is April 30,” a university official said. Last month, the university solicited applications from its professors for the position of superintendent and assistant superintendent so that hostels could be opened for students.
Students will be required to submit details such as the approximate distance from their residence to the university, parents’ monthly income, and the name of the last exam and grades earned.
The College Girls Hostel is located in Salt Lake. Nearly 200 girls can stay there.
At the Eden Hindu Hostel too, boys had entered the premises without the green light from the university authorities. The admission process for the boys’ home has not yet begun.
In February this year, the government ordered all schools, colleges and universities to open after the two-year Covid break for in-person classes. The notice also mentioned that hostels should also be opened immediately for out-of-town students.
