Further extending the maximum duration of PG students

The Senate in its 507th meeting held in October 2020 granted approval to extend the maximum duration of all PG students by one year based on the proposal by Director/QA (Senate memo 507.05.08.03) considering the Covid-19 pandemic.

Since the pandemic continued throughout the year 2021 too, resulting in lock-downs, curfews, travel restrictions etc., it is now proposed to give an additional extension of Four (04) months to those PG students whose maximum duration (as per the current status) will be ending during the period of 30/12/2021 to 31/12/2022.

This proposal is based on a discussion I had with the DPGSs of the FoA, FoE, FIT and FoB as a directive from the SHDC.
