Jamia Millia Islamia classes to continue in online mode
In view of the increased number of coronavirus cases in the national capital, Jamia Millia Islamia (JMI) declared in a set of guidelines on Tuesday that classes would only be held online. The university, on the other hand, has made it possible for research scholars to continue their academic work with the consent of their supervisors, effective immediately. "All faculties, departments, centers, and institutions of the University will continue to teach/learn undergraduate and postgraduate students in the online mode only," the notice said.
"Research scholars may continue their academic work with their respective supervisor/department head's permission, strictly adhering to the prescribed SOP for COVID-19 issued by the Government of India and the DDMA," it continued. As per the University Grants Commission (UGC) and Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) guidelines, final-year students will be required to visit their "respective colleges/centers/departments for their laboratory/practical/skill/library and related activities" in "small batches."
"All Group 'A' officers and in-charge of the section shall report to their offices in accordance with the MHA's proposed guidelines," it said. "Staggered working hours and 50% of staff shall attend the office on working days, while the remaining staff shall work from home as per the roster prepared by the Assistant Registrars Section Officers In-Charge, etc," the university also agreed.
Staff staying in containment zones must inform and apply for appropriate leave, as per the
Directive. Since the university needs a "proper quarantine facility," the notice stated that any employee who tests positive for COVID-19 "should notify the university and maintain complete isolation." All eligible employees also should "get themselves vaccinated as a precautionary measure," according to the letter.
"Personal visits by employees to the Vice-Office, Chancellor's Registrar's Office, Finance Officer's Office, Controller of Examinations' Office, and other Jamia offices should be avoided as far as possible," it said.
