The Uttarakhand Chief Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat on Sunday, November 8, 2020, launched free, high-speed WiFi service for all government colleges and universities in the state. He launched the service at a college in his constituency, Doiwala.

During the launch, Rawat said Uttarakhand is the first state in the country to provide free internet to all government colleges and universities. Internet connectivity in colleges and universities will play a big role in the education of students, he said.

He added that the move is a big step towards Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Digital India initiative and connecting the old with the modern.

Meanwhile, all higher educational institutions, universities and affiliated colleges reopened in Uttarakhand on November 2, 2020. As per guidelines, students will only be allowed to attend classes after they get written permission from their parents/guardians. According to the state education minister, the teaching format within the classrooms has also been changed in the SOP. Students will gradually be brought into the mainstream after classes resume. Over the next two-three weeks, online studies and other educational activities will be reviewed.
