Some people are spreading the fake news of reopening of universities on July 07, stated HEC Chairman in a talk show on a private news channel. Dr. Tariq Banuri said that we are working on plans to ensure the safety of the students and teachers and are working to finalize our SOPs before the reopening of universities.
However, Chairman HEC also mentioned that the plan was to reopen universities on July 15, as the Government had initially planned. HEC issued timelines and guidelines in this regard, which was according to the timeline provided by the Government. However, as of now, we still don’t have the exact date of the reopening of universities. HEC has asked the Government to suggest a suitable date in this regard.
