Bhubaneswar: The Odisha government has allowed reopening of Ayurvedic and Homeopathic Medical Colleges across the State from Monday.

The move is likely to prompt the government officials to go for gradual reopening of higher educational institutions including universities and colleges in a phased manner.

The Health and Family Welfare Department informed that the Ayurvedic and Homeopathic Medical Colleges will reopen by strictly following the social distancing and other COVID19 guidelines.

The medical colleges were closed following the Covid-19 outbreak in mid-March which led to delay in commencement of academic session for fresh BAMS and BHMS students, sources said.

Earlier, the State government had allowed the reopening of medical colleges for physical classes across the State from December 1.

On December 10, Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik had expressed displeasure over discrepancies in statements on reopening of educational institutions and rapped the concerned authorities over showing lack of coordination on the matter.

Patnaik’s response came hours after the School and Mass Education and the State Higher Education department in Odisha announced there is much likelihood on the reopening of schools and colleges in the State after New Year.
