Issue a standard operating procedure(SOP) for conducting offline exams



With the second wave of the Covid pandemic raging across India, the Free Software Movement Karnataka(FSMK) requests the authorities of the Visvesvaraya Technological University to issue a standard operating procedure(SOP) for engineering colleges affiliated to it so that the offline exams may be conducted smoothly. We are aware that individual colleges do not have the expertise to handle the effects of the pandemic and hence the need for a centralised SOP. However, we would urge VTU to consider the possibility of online examinations as the safest option.
