Students of the Government Polytechnic College for Women in Coimbatore city, Tamil Nadu, have alleged that a new building constructed three months ago is yet to be inaugurated.

A second-year student at the college told The New Indian Express, "The college offers eight courses and around 650 students are studying in the college. The state government allocated around Rs 9 crore to construct a building with ten classrooms and 15 labs considering inadequate space for classrooms. The construction work started in March 2023 and the work was completed in April 2024. However, this building is yet to be opened for use by students," she said.

A top officer from the college told The New Indian Express that the new building would be functional by next month.
