Chennai Rain: Madras University, Anna University Postpone Exams

New Delhi:  Due to heavy rain in the Tamil Nadu capital, Chennai based Anna University and University of Madras announced cancellation of their semester exams, reported Press Trust of India. Normal life was crippled in Chennai and its suburbs on Friday as rains pounded the city for several hours from Thursday evening, resulting in 30cm of showers in some eight hours and flooding several localities. Schools and colleges, closed since Tuesday, remained shut in Chennai, Tiruvallur and Kancheepuram districts, as the Tamil Nadu government appealed to private firms to allow their employees work from home, reported PTI.

Madras University said the revised date for the postponed examinations will be announced later.

"The scheduled examinations for today (03/11/2017) for the University Departments are postponed and classes are cancelled due to heavy rain. The revised date for the postponed examinations will be informed later," said a statement from Madras University.
