BENGALURU: Although there is no official order yet, the office of Deputy CM Dr C N Ashwath Narayan confirmed on Tuesday that colleges would begin offline classes from October 1. Dr Narayan is also Minister for Higher Education.

However, online classes are scheduled to start from September 1. This comes in the midst of admission processes and entrance examinations for various schools and colleges. Though there is no word that offline classes for schools will also begin on October 1, Minister for Primary and Secondary Education S Suresh Kumar stated that “the government will follow the Union government’s decision in this regard”.

Meanwhile, Karnataka State Law University has come under sharp criticism by the student community and even former CM Siddaramaiah for deciding to hold examinations for all semesters. The government had asked educational institutes that came under its purview to hold exams only for final semester students. As per sources, the university is following the dates decided by the law department and Bar, and does not come under purview of the state government.
