In light of the pandemic COVID-19, the negative impact on every major area for development is huge and pulls everyone back into time. Including the worst affected migrants, workers, employees, employers, essential services workers are hugely impacted and brought life to a standstill everywhere.

Students too are suffering in this pandemic and are left with no or little choice to act onto something. This is the broader aspect of the current situation which almost every student and their parents are facing and a viewpoint of thousands of students given their current state and risk:

  • Several colleges fall under Rajiv Gandhi Proudyogiki Vishwavidyalaya, Bhopal and students belonging to these colleges have come from cities all across Madhya Pradesh and other states too. They have departed to their native states amidst the outbreak without carrying their study material or luggage.
  • Due to the spread of Covid-19, the institutes are non-functional since the 15th of March, 2020, and will supposedly continue to be the same until the situation is alleviated. A few colleges were not able to conduct the mid-semester exams before the lockdown and as a result, an average syllabus of 50% is yet to be covered.
  • A University, where a considerable amount of students reside in rural and semi-urban areas plenty of them come from a low-income family, don't have access to high-speed internet or a laptop/desktop, which nullifies the possibilities of an online examination if it has been proposed and also lack of availability of colleges nearby to give online examination in other states.
  • As mentioned above due to lack of internet facilities, students face a lot of difficulties in self-study through the medium of online classrooms or educational videos and this lockdown starting from 23rd March has made a huge negative impact on studies.
  • Everything is at a halt and traveling back to their respective colleges isn't happening anytime soon given the situation. Many such students are under red zones or contaminated zones where they are under quarantine for at least a month given the rising cases of COVID-19 day by day and their as well as their parents' life is always at a constant threat. This has created stress among students and they too are worried about their exams, health, and wellbeing of others as well.

Noting the stress, mental situation, and risk on students their parents, faculties, and affiliated people, hereby, we humbly request RGPV to give general promotions based on our performance in our previous semesters or canceling the exams of even semester for all the affiliated colleges and students.
