At Dyal Singh Evening College, a proposal to construct a high-rise building to add classrooms is already in place and the governing body of Ram Lal Anand Evening College has also passed a resolution on similar lines, university officials said.
Meanwhile, Deshbandhu College (Evening) is now Ramanujan College and a foundation stone for the college building was laid earlier this month. According to its website, the new campus will be spread over seven acres in Kalkaji, South Delhi. “The construction of the building will take at least two years.
