South India

Many colleges and universities across Karnataka are gearing up to welcome final year undergraduate and post graduate students from Tuesday. 


After months of closure due to coronavirus-induced lockdown, colleges across Karnataka reopened on Tuesday following all COVID-19 health protocols.

With colleges and student hostels all set to re-open from Tuesday, Managements and faculties are supervising COVID-19 precautionary measures which includes testing the teaching and non-teaching staff.

As per University Grant Commission (UGC) and the State Government guidelines, students, teachers and non-teaching staff have to undergo RT-PCR test for COVID-19. They may attend the college only if the report is negative.

Meanwhile, students will be allowed inside the college only if they get a no-objection certificate from parents. 

Thermal screening and sanitisation are mandatory at the entrance gate of the university. Students are directed to wear masks and maintain social distancing inside the college premises.

Earlier, Karnataka Deputy Chief Minister Dr C N Ashwath Narayan, who holds the higher education portfolio, had told reporters guidelines have already been given to the colleges in view of the coronavirus scare, and the government is also keenly monitoring the measures taken by colleges.

According to him, each college has to set up a taskforce consisting of teachers, staff and students to ensure that the regulations are strictly adhered to.
