The University Grants Commission (UGC) has been directed to structure the guidelines for reopening the varsities. The guidelines require higher education institutions to restart classes from August for the enrolled students amid social distancing and as further suggested by the UGC, a new batch shall begin in September. However, there still are many uncertainties over the admission process. The minister is expected to talk about the admission process too.

In a video message, HRD said, “To constantly communicate with the 33 crore students in India, is a challenge and universities have been united and are taking steps to educate students via online education. I want to thank you all for your contribution to stay motivated and motivate students, too, in these adverse situations.”

It is important to remember that this is not the first time the HRD Minister would conduct a webinar. Earlier, the teachers, students, and parents were involved in the interactions with the HRD minister.

Training teachers in information and communication technology (ICT) and continuing online education are among the key factors which are among the new normals, as suggested by UGC. Making colleges 5-day working are some of the other suggestions.

Students or universities or other stakeholders can write to the social media handles of Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank or the Ministry of HRD, in case they have any queries or suggestions.
