A final year B.Sc. (Botany) student belonging to Tindivanam said students hailing from far flung areas, including Tindivanam, Arakkonam, Jolarpet and interior villages of Tiruvallur district, found it difficult to arrive on time.
"Earlier we just used to make it on time when classes commenced at 9.30 a.m. Now, we are forced to skip the first hour", he said.
They had already presented petitions to college authorities and higher-ups, but in vain, the students claimed.
Today's demonstration was a collective decision of all the students, including those belonging to the postgraduate courses.
A final-year student of Economics said half the students belonged to far-flung areas.
Further, there were around 150 visually handicapped students, who were inconvenienced by the revised timings. College authorities said they were helpless as a GO had been passed to this effect.
Meanwhile, office-bearers of the Students' Union presented a memorandum to the Joint Director of the Department of College Education at Egmore.
They warned that they would intensify the agitation and take to the streets if their request was not considered.
