No On-Campus University Class This Year In Bengal

Kolkata: The state education department on Sunday announced that on-campus classes won’t be resumed at colleges and universities from December 1.

The department added that the classes for the first semester of the undergraduate session will be conducted online.

Following a meeting between state higher education minister Partha Chatterjee and vice-chancellors of state universities, it was also declared that admissions to undergraduate and postgraduate courses at the state universities will reopen once more for two weeks.

Chatterjee acknowledged that a large number of vacancies remained in some of the most prominent colleges of the state.

In the hour-long meeting, each university was asked to begin the new academic year at their own convenience, which has raised the fear that there will be no uniformity in the session.

“The University Grants Commission (UGC) had asked the institutes to begin the new academic calendar from November 1, which was followed by most universities across the country. The Bengal government postponed it to December 1 citing the ongoing pandemic and the festival season. Now, at Sunday’s meeting, the VCs have been told to begin the new session as per their decision. If there is no uniformity, it may lead to problems later in running the semester,” said a higher education department official.

State-run universities have also been given permission to curtail syllabus, if necessary, to complete the semesters. “Registrars should coordinate the attendance of non-teaching employees, we have been told. Also, all examinations are to be held online till a decision is taken,” said a VC.

The state had closed the admissions on October 30 and the registration was closed on November 30. Now, the admission process will restart on December 1 and close by December 15.
