On Thursday, some students at the esteemed Maulana Azad National Institute of Technology (MANIT) in Bhopal staged a sit-in and shut the facility’s main gate in protest of the facility’s requirement for 75% attendance in order to write exams. After discussions between the administration and students, the day-long protest came to an end, MANIT Academics Dean Dr Arvind Mittal told PTI in the evening. “The students committed to a 75% attendance rate.” We have taken care of a few of their small issues. “The issue has been resolved without compromising on the ordinance (requiring a minimum of 75% attendance),” added Dr Mittal.

According to a student who spoke to PTI on the condition of anonymity, the demonstration started in the morning with a call to eliminate the requirement for 75% attendance and to let all students in their final year take exams without regard to attendance. “Students in their last year require time to prepare for placements. Companies who contact us urge us to prepare various skill sets, “He asserted. According to MANIT Registrar Binod Doley, the rule requiring a minimum of 75% attendance is in effect at all national institutes of technology across the nation.
