The Kerala government on Wednesday issued an order permitting colleges and higher education institutions in the state to reopen on January 4, 2021.
According to the order, principals, teachers and non-teaching staff are required to attend colleges from December 28, 2020.
Until further notice, all classes will be arranged for a maximum of five hours. This is to facilitate two shifts whenever student strength is higher.
Colleges are expected to operate on a rotation basis with only 50 per cent attendance.
Classes will be arranged on Saturdays as well.
