UGC GUIDLINES ARE ADVISORY IN NATURE : NEW NOTICE ON 05-05-2020
This is in continuation to our earlier letter of even number dated 29.4.2020 vide which the
Guidelines on Examinations and Academic calendar were issued.
As per the letter, it was made clear that the guidelines are advisory in nature and the
Universities may accordingly plan their activities keeping in view the safety and interest of our
stakeholders, giving highest priority to health of all concerned, while adopting and
implementing the Guidelines.
The said guidelines also provide a framework for internship etc. However, keeping in view
the current situation of lock down across the country due to Covid- 1 9, the universities/ colleges
may also take following measures for internship and other related activities:
1. Allow the students to take up ‘online internships/ activities’ including the activities that
can be carried out digitally or otherwise from home.
2. Engage them to work as interns on ongoing projects.
3. Delay the start date for internship.
4. Reduce the period of internship clubbing with assignments etc
