Petition to postpone 5th convocation of Central University of Karnataka due to outbreak of novel corona virus (COVID-19)
Respective heads of MHRD, UGC, CUK,
We refer to the petition, undersigned by students of Central University of Karnataka, regarding the Postponement of 5th annual convocation of Central University of Karnataka.
It is in regard with the notification received from the official site of CUK, stating that Convocation is to be held on 14th march , degree distribution only to the gold medalist and PhD students due to preventive measures taken for corona virus. The concern is much for all of us as we all have got arrangements for this event. Being a Central university, we all expect to be convocated rather than collecting certificates from the respective departments.
We understand that this decision is in wake of alertness regarding the spread of COVID-19 virus. But it will be great if our university postpones this ceremony so that the condition will be in control by that time and everyone can attend the same which will be a very great news for the students and their families who are eagerly waiting for this ceremony.
There were instances where two batches were convocated in the same year We request the authorities to do the same this time.
