         Overcrowding occurs when the resources allocated for specific tasks are over stretched or used. Overcrowding in lecture theatres in the university mostly occur due to the inability of the school  management to control the amount of students taken in over the course of an academic session.
       This  inadvertently leads to a strain on resources allocated for specific tasks as commonly seen in hostel allocations, lecture theaters etc.
