Against this backdrop, AICTE issued these instructions to educational institutions. The instructions will remain in place until the current pandemic situation is brought under control. The Corona cases are increasing in the country. The financial situation of many has deteriorated.

It is the sole responsibility of the educational institutes to pay the teachers on time and no complaints will be lodged against them, the AICTE said. Apart from this, many students in rural areas do not have access to the internet during this period, so institutions in the area should allow students to use the WiFi service.
