- Daulat Ram College adopted Govt. College in Chouhtan, Rajasthan, and Govt. College, Magra Punjala, Jodhpur.
Rama Sharma, the principal of Hansraj College explained the reason for focusing on the northeast. Thus she said, “It is because of alumni like Kiren Rijiju, they chose the northeastern institutions. Several colleges from different parts of India have already been adopted under DU’s Vidya Vistar Scheme. Thus, after the launch of this scheme, we changed that to Gyan Setu, she added.
How will the DU colleges continue this remote assistance?
Rama Sharma highlighted that the online teachers’ training program has already started. Also, they recently organized an event where the Hansraj students interacted with students from other colleges. Exchange programs will also be held after the covid situation gets better.

Also, students will be given skill courses such as data analytics, data mining, and many more. Hence, the DU colleges are trying their best to provide the best facilities in their respective adopted colleges.
