The decision was taken at a high-level meeting, headed by Vice-Chancellor Rakesh Bhatnagar on Monday, to review the status of studies in the university.
“Holidays for Holi will start from March 23,” read a press statement.
“No meeting ceremony or any such program will be held on the university campus or hostels,” the statement added.
