DU Initiative: It will be mandatory for every student of Delhi University to plant a tree anywhere in the country during their studies. From the upcoming session, it has been made compulsory for the students of UG, PG, and MPhil-PhD levels. In this way, tree plantation will be part of the studies in DU.
It will be scientifically surveyed and analyzed by departments and colleges. Students will have to submit the monitoring report of the tree for six months along with the photograph. Students can plant trees anywhere so that they are comfortable.
DU Acting Vice-Chancellor Prof PC Joshi said in the press conference that the university has taken a new step. With this, we will move from environmental education to environmental action at the grassroots level. He said that every year lakhs of students from different states of the country take admission here. Now it will be mandatory for these students to plant saplings. These students will be our climate warriors.
It should be kept in mind that plants absorb carbon dioxide and provide oxygen. Absorbs many harmful pollutants including cancer-causing chemicals, helps prevent soil erosion, landslides.
Plantation and subsequent maintenance will not only help in generating employment at a diverse level but will also provide many products which will help in providing income. For the first time faced with a lack of oxygen during the corona pandemic, the pandemic taught us a lot. So we need to prepare ourselves to deal with future problems.

Preparations are being made to open this college in Bhati Kalan village of Fatehpur Beri, Mehrauli.

The name of this college to be opened on 40 bigha land is yet to be decided. The name of the college will be decided in the Executive Council and Academic of DU. Guidelines will be ready soon to open the college.
DU Registrar Dr. Vikas Gupta said that DU is going to complete its hundred years next year. On this occasion, the admission of first-year students will be taken after preparing the building. The land for this college to be built in South West Delhi has been allotted in July 2019.
On the approval and recommendation of Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal, land has been provided by the district administration for the establishment of the college.

Duplicate mark sheets of nine years ago can be taken online in DU:
Students of Delhi University will no longer have to worry if they lose or get damaged six months ago’s mark sheet. Students will now get duplicate mark sheets of nine years ago online only. DU is going to provide the facility for the students to download their mark sheets after the year 2012. Till now only a six-month-old marksheet could be obtained. For this, they had to make rounds of the examination branch. With this facility, students will get a lot of ease.
DU Examination Branch Dean Prof DS Rawat told that we are going to give the facility to the students to give duplicate mark sheets online after 2012. According to the arrangement till now, if the student lost his mark sheet, got the printout damaged, or did not save the PDF, then he could get the duplicate mark sheet only up to six months ago. Whereas before that they have to come to the examination branch to get the duplicate mark sheet. They had to go through a long process for this. We want students to get everything online sitting at home.
As before, students will have to pay a fee of Rs 500 for getting duplicate mark sheets. To get this they have to enter roll number, college name, date of birth. After that, they will be asked which year and for which semester they want the mark sheet. Under the new system, the mark sheet of any semester after the year 2012 can be downloaded. Before the year 2012 manual result was available so it is difficult to provide the facility during that time.
