Both undergraduate and postgraduate classes will continue in online mode
The West Bengal Education Minister Partha Chatterjee on November 29 announced that colleges and universities in the state will remain closed in December, and both undergraduate and postgraduate classes will continue in online mode. The decision was based on the recommendations given by vice-chancellors of state universities.
Earlier, Chatterjee had announced that campus activities in state-run higher educational institutes will restart from December 1, depending on the COVID situation.
“Still the Corona situation in the state is not a very satisfactory one. In that case, if colleges and universities are opened, the chances of infection may increase several times. So keeping that possibility in mind, it is not possible to reopen a college or a university right now. Instead, colleges and universities will open only if the situation in Corona improves,” Chatterjee said.
He added, “Higher education institutions can also extend the admission procedure by another 15 days at both UG and PG levels and it is upto the concerned college authorities how they will conduct the admission process for the vacant seats.”
