It was also decided to hold a meeting with managements of graduate and post-graduate institutions to frame guidelines to be followed strictly during college hours.

Later, speaking to reporters, Ashwath Narayan said degree and engineering diploma colleges would restart from November 17.

“The online/offline option is left to the student. College managements have been instructed to maintain a register of students attending classes with the consent of their parents. Guidelines will also be framed for students who wish to stay in the hostels,” he added.

The DCM said, “Practical classes have been given first priority and colleges are being started as per UGC rules. A taskforce will be formed at every college. A DC-led committee will be formed for each district. A parental consent letter is compulsory, and no student will be forced to attend offline classes.”

Higher Education Department Principal Secretary G Kumar Nayak, College Education Department Commissioner Pradeep and Higher Education Advisor Doreswami were present.
