West Bengal: No plan to start physical classes in colleges, universities

December 1, 2020

West Bengal Education Minister Partha Chatterjee said the state does not have any plans to start physical classes in colleges and universities soon, which are closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Chatterjee said, “There are no plans to start physical classes in colleges and universities. Syllabus provided will be shortened. More focus will be given on online classes. We are even thinking of taking 1st-semester exams online.”

Meanwhile, medical colleges in the state have resumed regular classes from today, December 1, 2020.

 A senior official of the West Bengal state health department said that classes will start in a “phased manner” after properly sanitizing the institutes.  Earlier, a senior health ministry official said in a letter to all chief secretaries and administrators of all states and UTs, “The states/ UTs may take necessary steps to open the medical colleges on or before 1st December 2020. Needless to say, all the SOPs/ Guidelines with respect to social distancing and prevention of the spread of epidemic issues by central/state/ UT Governments will be formed scrupulously by all the colleges.”
