University to provide phones for online classes
Jadavpur University

Jadavpur University has formally decided to provide android handsets and data pack to students, not having such facilities, as new semester classes are slated to begin this month, an official said on Sunday.

The JU also decided to hold final semester examination in arts and science stream in contactless digital mode from October 1 to 10. JU Pro-Vice-Chancellor Chiranjib Bhattacharya told PTI on Sunday that those students not having smartphones and network connectivity will be provided with the handsets and data pack in arts, science and engineering streams very soon.

“We will provide them with good quality sets compatible with net facilities, sharing, uploading and downloading options and for those needing good connectivity data pack and recharge for three months,” Bhattacharya said.

He, however, said the total number of such students was being assessed by a university committee after the students’ union provided their own survey figure. Asked how the students not having android sets and poor net connectivity will get access to classes as digital classes in arts and science are slated to begin from September 14, Bhattacharya said the authorities are planning to complete the process as early as possible. Semester classes for engineering are slated to begin from September 25. (Source ;
