Members of Rajiv Gandhi University Research Scholars' Forum (RGURSF) have urged Registrar N T Rikam to consider immediate reopening of labs, hostel accommodation for researchers.

The forum urged the university administration to allow re-entry of research scholars into the campus, access to library, labs and hostel accommodation.

The memorandum submitted by the RGURSF said that since the declaration of country-wide closure of universities and colleges in March, continuity in many research works have been disrupted.

"Researchers are facing hurdles in carrying out their work as staying out of campus has deprived them of adequate time with respective supervisors," Prem Taba, general secretary of RGURSF, said.
