Panjab University Chandigarh, one of the top universities of India, made a big move to become a vehicle free campus. The varsity has taken strict decisions to ban the entry of four wheelers.
The vehicles will be parked outside the campus and entry rules have been formed. The people coming academic blocks will enter from Gate no.1. The ones concerned with the Admin block, bank, post office, health centre and the market would enter from Gate no. 2. The University residents or their visitors would make their entry from Gate no. 3.
The service of e-rickshaws and buses will however be available in the campus. Systematizing things, the authorities have proposed to introduce a “Cycle Dock Station”. All the students will be able to use the cycles for free of cost. The cycles will be in a totally different colors. This will ensure that no student can take them out of the campus.
This big move by the University is appreciable as it’s beneficial for both, health and environment. The campus will now be noise free and pollution free as well.
With the University elections process about to start for the student parties and the “Gerhi” culture in the university, we will have to wait and see how students react to it.
