All engineering, degree and diploma colleges across Karnataka will reopen from 17 November, the state government has decided at a meeting headed by Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa, reported NDTV.

While students in colleges across the state have been given the option to study online, those wishing to attend physical classes will only be allowed following consent from parents.

In order to maintain social distancing, the number of batches in every college would be decided depending on the number of students opting for physical classes.

According to the report, Karnataka Deputy Chief Minister Dr Ashwath Narayan said that physical classes are optional and that students had been demanding to reopen colleges in the state, as it is a matter of ‘their future’.

All health SOPs would be followed in college and hostels, Dr Ashwath Narayan added.
