Chattisgarh government cancels offline classes amid Covid-19 threat

Digital Desk: The government of Chattisgarh has decided to cancel all offline classes for colleges and universities amid the rising number of Covid-19 cases in the state. 

Moreover, the government has decided to postpone board examinations. An official stated that the government has also set an attendance cap for educational and non-academic employees.

In its order, the state’s higher education department asked the colleges to conduct the first and second semester exams of all courses online or in a combined (online+offline) method.

“Physical classes in all government and private colleges and universities should be immediately restricted. Instead, classes should be held online,” the public relations department official stated, quoting the order.

“Besides, instructions should be issued to educational and non-academic staffers of universities and colleges to follow their workplace in one-third of their total strength based on roster strategy,” the official stated.
