Moreover, IIT Delhi has decided not to open its campus before December this year. “We do not have a choice this year. We will follow the sub committee’s report, which recommends online mode to conduct classes for the upcoming semester, said Ramgopal Rao, Director of IIT Delhi.

IIT Kharagpur registrar B N Singh said, “They are our children. If they have some difficulty in shifting immediately, we cannot force them. But since the next semester is more than two months away, there will be little academic activity for them.”
A report was prepared by a subcommittee of the six IITs in wake of Coronavirus pandemic. It has been submitted to the standing committee of IIT council in June. As mentioned by a leading daily, the report has suggested that the admissions should be as per the schedule of JEE Main and the interviews must be conducted online to start the new programme in December 2020- January 2021. The report also suggests a reduction in the PG programme duration in all IITs. However, the IITs would review the situation again in October 2020. The students can follow the official website of IITs for regular updates.
