The National Institute of Technology (NIT) Srinagar has cancelled the winter vacation this year owing to continuous shutdown in the Valley.
"Due to continuous shutdown, students from other states have not come yet. We are trying our best to compensate the losses," said the NIT Registrar.
He said the authorities had decided to cancel the winter vacation this year as regular classes could not be held for five months.
"The exams have also been affected. The students who have returned to the hostel are only able to attend the classes partially due to the shutdowns. We are trying to help them out. We are going for e-learning for theoretical work and contact classes for practical. We are trying to call the students in a staggered manner. We have also cancelled the weekend holiday on Saturday," said the official.
Among the institute's around 1,800 students, 1,400 are non-local. Many had left for home after the uprising erupted in the Valley. (CNS)
