ITANAGAR: The Arunachal Pradesh government has decided to reopen all higher education institutions (HEIs) — universities, colleges and polytechnics — from January 5, 2021.
An official said, "The State government has also declared Saturday as a 'working day' till normalcy returns, as the colleges/HEIs are facing acute shortage of physical teaching-learning days to complete the syllabus."
He further added, "However, no decision regarding the reopening of hostels has been taken yet, which will be intimated by the Government in due course of time."
The offline classes for students of Classes X and XII started from November 16 last and for students of Classes VIII, IX and XI began from January 4. The State Directorate of Higher and Technical Education has issued Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) for all to maintain all the corona norms.
For colleges and polytechnics (both government and private), students of first/second semesters will have their offline classes on Mondays and Thursdays. Students of third/fourth semesters will have classes on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Students of the fifth/sixth semesters will have their classes on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
