However, Delhi University professors reported slow internet speed and connectivity as major issues in conducting online classes for the students.
Mumbai University too has extended its closure period to April 14, 2020. The extension is due to the country-wise lockdown. In the time that the University is closed, it has instructed all teaching faculty to continue teaching work with the use of online resources at their disposal. All University staff will work from home but will have to present themselves in case of any urgent work.
Earlier in the day, Anna University in Chennai made a similar announcement. The extension of closure of Universities was only inevitable given that the national lockdown will end after April 14, 2020.
