The colleges and universities in Maharashtra will start physical classes from October 20. The students need to be fully vaccinated in order to attend offline classes. This was informed by the Maharashtra Higher Education Minister Uday Samant recently.
The staff and non-staff should complete their vaccination before attending the schools.
“All the non-agricultural colleges, state-run universities, deemed universities, self-financed universities and colleges affiliated to them can start holding physical classes from October 20. The teaching as well as non-teaching staff should complete their vaccination on priority,” the minister said.
He added that the students who have taken both the doses can attend the classes. Others should get the vaccination on a priority basis.
Every university needs to have the standard operating procedures (SOPs) and must adhere to it strictly, Samant said.
