One of Gurgaon's government college, has been forced to use their toilets as a substitute for classrooms for M.A Sociology students, since past two years. The Dronacharya Government College has been doing so because of shortage of space to conduct classes.

According to the college principal RK Yadav, after the college ran out of space to conduct classes, they were forced to convert toilet of their college into a makeshift classroom for the students.

"We need at least 25 more classrooms. We got approvals for 12 classrooms almost a year ago. But the state government has not yet sanctioned funds for the construction work. So, we were forced to convert one of the college toilets into a makeshift classroom for about 40 MA students," Yadav was quoted as saying in TOI.

Some faculties of the college believe that despite knowing that the master's degree courses started four years back and more classrooms are needed, some government officials are sitting on the files and not approving the required funds.

As per a final year student, there are 60 students in their batch, out of which around 35 go to the toilet to attend classes. He said that despite their continuous complaints to the concerned authorities, nothing fruitful has been done so far.
