Kolkata: Presidency University convocation will be held at Nandon-3 on Tuesday at 11 am. Students blocked the university gate on Monday for the Hindu hostel demand. As a result, there is uncertainty about the convocation ceremony. Finally, the university authorities said the convocation ceremony will be held.
Earlier, Just a day before the convocation ceremony at the Presidency University, the hostel boarders along with some students went to an indefinite shutdown.
