If students remain absent from schools and colleges for three days, their names will be struck off.

Names of students who remain absent without prior notice (unauthorized) for three consecutive days will be struck off from postgraduate classes and degree colleges of the state universities. The Education Department has instructed all the universities to strictly follow this. It is known that the names of children who are absent from the schools of the state since the month of September are being struck off. Universities and colleges have also been asked to take action on similar lines.

Universities have been told that if a student is absent from class for three consecutive days without valid reason, then send a notice to him and seek his reply. If the answer given by the student is not satisfactory, then strike out his/her name. Also take action to cancel his registration. Regarding this, a letter has been sent by Director of Higher Education Dr. Rekha Kumari to the Registrars of all the universities of the state.

It has also been made clear in the letter written to the registrars that if a student’s class attendance is less than 75 percent, then he should not be given the admit card for the examination. The controller of examinations of the universities, with the help of the registrars, will ensure that the attendance of the concerned student is 75 percent or more, even after this his admit card will be issued. If the attendance is less than 75 percent then the admit card will not be issued. Universities have been asked to strictly follow both the above orders.

Names of 19 lakh school children who remained absent were deleted

These include more than two lakh children each of fourth and fifth class. 1.20 lakh children of the first, 1.55 lakh of the second and 1.95 lakh of the third are included.
