First-year undergraduate students of Ramakrishna Mission Residential College, Narendrapur, who are encountering connectivity problems in attending online classes have been called to the campus so they can use the institute’s connectivity facility for attending online classes.

A notice signed by Swami Shastrajnananda, the principal of the college, says: “All first year UG students who had sent an email to the undersigned requesting to stay on campus will come to the campus on 5th December, 2021 between 1pm and 4pm. Their food will be taken care of from evening tiffin onwards.”

The classes for the undergraduate and postgraduate first-year students commenced from November 8 in online mode.

Principal Swami Shastrajnananda earlier said those students who wished to come on-campus because of network issues were requested to email (rkmcnpur@-gmail.com) and seek permission to reside on-campus.

Following receipt of applications, those students have been asked to come to the campus and attend classes from the WiFi-enabled hostels.

Those who won’t be able to come during the December-5 time slot have to send an email to the principal and will be given another time slot to arrive on-campus. First-year postgraduate students who are encountering network woes could be called next.

The returnees should have had at least one round of vaccination and produce a certificate for the same when they arrive on campus immediately, the notice says.

They have to bring masks and sanitiser.

A teacher of the college said a substantial number of students came from the remote areas and they were facing factors like unstable connectivity, power outage, coming in the way of attending the online classes.

According to him, even as the state government has allowed reopening of colleges and universities for in-person classes from November 16, RKM Narendrapur, which is a residential college, is yet to start physical classes in the respective years considering that the institute is required to take note of maintaining physical distancing norms in the hostels before calling all the students.

“But at the same time while continuing the online classes, the college has thought of the hassles of the network constrained students,” he told The Telegraph.
