University and college campuses in Mumbai can reopen physically for students from February 15, after a 10-month-long break. The state’s higher and technical education minister Uday Samant announced that colleges can start classes with 50% attendance on a rotation basis.

Classes and examinations will be conducted both online and offline and attendance will be voluntary, he said. Mumbai University will take a call on the matter soon and issue its circular after deliberating with local authorities, report Sujit Mahamulkar and Yogita Rao.

Samant said universities can come out with their own SOPs, adding the mandatory 75% attendance rule will be relaxed and students will not be debarred from exams.

University and college campuses in the state are set to re-open physically for students. The first phase of the reopening will be from February 15 to March 5, after which the state will review the situation and decide on the future course of action.

Colleges will follow guidelines issued by the University Grants Commission on November 5, and the state higher and technical education department.

The decision about reopening of colleges located in “restricted areas” will be taken by the university, only after consultation with the local body or district collector and district disaster management authority.
