Shifting of Fall-2020 Class Start Dates

Congratulations on successfully finishing Summer trimester.  This has not been an easy time, but on the whole, with your continued support, we are facing the challenges atrophied by COVID-19 with the necessary resilience and flexibility. I am reaching out to thank you for your hard work and adaptability that has allowed us to embrace online teaching with considerable ease and efficiency.

We are preparing to welcome new and returning students this Fall term with the same enthusiasm and excitement as in any other trimester. We realize that due to the readjustments made to our academic calendar following the UGC instructions at the beginning of the Summer term, the term break has been shorter than usual causing some inconvenience to both faculty members and students. At the same time, the opening week of Fall coincides with Durga Puja, which will be observed by many ULABians.

In consideration of the above, we have decided to start the undergraduate classes of Fall trimester on October 27 and graduate classes on October 23 instead of the previously announced dates.

We assure you that this will not affect or delay the graduation of our students, and an updated academic calendar will be intimated soon.
