Kozhikode: Health Minister Veena George said that the move by National Institute of Technology (NIT) Calicut to conduct classes amidst restrictions sounded in the wake of the Nipah scare in the district will be brought to the attention of the District Collector. The NIT authorities, on the other hand, said that since the institute is centrally managed, state holidays are not applicable.

The students of NIT have lodged complaints against the practice of continuing regular classes in violation of the Nipah regulations. The students were concerned about this and demanded that the authorities take immediate action. They also raised their complaints to the District Medical Officer and the Health department.

NIT officials argue that the institute does not come under a containment zone and that state-declared holidays is not applicable.

Owing to the Nipah scare, the Collector had declared a holiday for all educational institutions including tuition centers and coaching classes and asked that online classes be conducted instead till September 23 in the district.
