The Odisha Higher Education department on Sunday came up with a clarification after a fake letter regarding the reopening of colleges and universities started doing rounds on various social media platforms.

The fake letter claimed that the department has decided to reopen the higher educational institutions from February 10. 

Taking to Twitter, the Higher Education Department said, “A fake letter is circulating in social media purportedly conveying decision of Higher Education Department to reopen colleges and universities from 10th Feb’2022. It is hereby clarified that no such decision has been taken by the state government.”



Notably, on January 7, Odisha had announced the closure of colleges, universities, and technical educational institutions except the medical colleges/nursing colleges and institutions under the control of the Health and Family Welfare department from January 10.

On the other hand, students have been demanding cancellation of Plus 2 board exams in view of the present Covid-19 situation in the State.

However, the Director of Higher Secondary Education, Bikash Mohapatra, on Saturday hinted at the possibilities of the conduct of the Board examinations in offline mode this year.

Earlier, the State School and Mass Education Minister, Samir Ranjan Dash had also said that Class 10 and 12 students should be ready with their preparations for the Board examinations.
