Professor Lingraju Gandhi, registrar of KSOU said, “There are departments who are conducting the online classes. We are also waiting for the Directorate of Distance Education to release the academic year schedule for the upcoming semesters. On the basis on that, we will take a call on how we need to adjust classes. But, for the pending years, we have already called for examinations and applications are open.”
