30-day delay for academics in T.

The ongoing general strike in support of Telangana has forced professional colleges to extend the academic year by a month in the Telangana region. Osmania University has also extended its postgraduate semester by two weeks to make up for the loss of working days on account of the strike.

The academic year should have ended in the second week of April 2012, but has now been extended to the second week of May. Students were unable to attend college for a month because buses were not running, and this meant they could not fulfil the minimum attendance norm of 75 per cent attendance. Unless the academic calendar is extended by a month, students in the Telangana region will not be able to meet the attendance requirement and sit for their exams.
