All 75 colleges across the state are affiliated with NEHU. "We have been informed that classes for first-semester undergraduate courses have been deferred indefinitely due to the NEP 2020 tussle between the authorities and teachers. We hope the matter is resolved at the earliest,” a student of Lady Keane College said media.
She said although she had paid the fees and got herself admitted to the BA degree course, the current tug-of-war between teachers and authorities may affect the timeline of other semesters. The Meghalaya College Teachers' Association (MCTA) had asked its members to boycott classes from Tuesday barring third and fifth-semester classes.
