Students of the Ramjas College are no longer allowed to play DJ's and loud music streaming on the occasion of fresher and farewell parties. This order came in from the acting principal of the Ramjas college who also instructed that any or all functions in the college must end by 4 pm and two teachers, one preferably female, must stay till the function ends.
Permission will be required for organizing the events
According to the reports from the India Express, PC Tulsian who is the current acting principal of the college issued a notice saying that before organizing any function inside the college premises, students will have to seek the permission from the college. The request for the permission must come along with the recommendation from a teacher of the concerned department.
Official words of the principal
"It is appalling what the students do. We have received many complaints in the past. I will not go into the details but there have been instances where people have complained of misbehaviour. Why are DJs or loud music needed? This is a college, not a club. Even I was a student of this college. We didn't need to make noise to throw farewell parties. People have to maintain decorum. Also, examinations are starting soon and there should be no noise. Students in hostels need peace and quiet to study. Practical exams have already started and theory exams will start on May 9," Tulsian said.
Objections from students
The notice did not go well with the students as they raised the objections and said " This is bizarre! Why can't we play music during our functions? And why must a function end by 4 pm? These rules make no sense for college students. The college itself uses speakers for the functions it holds. Why should the students be not allowed? "
