Click here for latest updates on college reopening: Check states resuming colleges from September 1

The Delhi government on Friday announced that schools, colleges, universities will be permitted to reopen from September 1. However, Jawaharlal Nehru University, Delhi University and Jamia Millia Islamia said they will hold meetings internally to discuss the resumption of academic activities,

Assam government will resume physical classes for Class 12, final-year degree and postgraduation courses from the first week of September with relaxation of COVID-19 restrictions. Chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma said that the first dose of COVID-19 vaccine will be mandatory for attending the classes.

Tamil Nadu, Uttarakhand, Telangana and Rajasthan governments have decided to reopen colleges in the states from September 1. The authorities have also instructed colleges to follow COVID-19 guidelines and ensure that the campus is sanitised by August 30.

Even as uncertainty prevails over the reopening of colleges, states have started the admissions process for the new academic year.

As some states are planning to reopen colleges and universities with limited capacity, others have decided to resume the physical classes after the complete vaccination of the students and college staff. States like Punjab and Chandigarh have already reopened the colleges for those students who have received at least one dose of the Covid-19 vaccine.

Delhi University earlier announced to reopen the Delhi University colleges for science streams students. However, the university cancelled its move later stating that the Delhi Disaster Management Authority is yet to allow in-person classes on campuses.
