The Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) had earlier said that it will open in a phased manner.

In an order issued on Wednesday, the university said that it will allow entry of third-year Ph.D scholars, both hostellers and day scholars into the campus from Thursday.
Besides this, buses will be allowed to enter the campus from Thursday, it said.

It stated that final-year M.Sc students, B.Tech fourth-year and final-year MBA students will be allowed to enter campus from September 27.
