The Dhaka University authorities are going to introduce punch cards for entry to the DU halls, said DU official sources.

Every hall of Dhaka University is plagued with problems. Various problems including food problem, housing crisis, washroom problem, Gonoroom etc, are the common scenario of every Hall. 

Many times, the university authorities have worked on these issues, but no solution has been found yet.

To reduce these problems and create a secure atmosphere, DU Vice Chancellor, A S M Maksud Kamal has taken steps. 

Yesterday in the fresher reception and cultural fest of the Mass Communication and Journalism Department of Dhaka University, he said, every student has to punch 

a card to enter into the hall. As a result, we can protect our hall from outsiders and non-residents. 

He also said, "Our regular students have been given smart cards. This card has 15 applications. The cards will also reach our teachers within the next month. In the next one month, library entrants will also need to punch cards. The past students who went to the library to study BCS, will not be allowed to enter there again.”

Besides, he also added, "We also have a plan of increasing the number of halls. And we already have applied for a budget to the university commission.
