•Scheduled screening, and testing of the entire campus population.
•The entire infrastructure including the institute vehicles are regularly cleaned and disinfected.
•At every essential points sanitizer on foot pedal stands have been installed to reduce direct contact.

Hybrid learning model has been introduced. Students participate in virtual learning, and in-person learning. The offline in person learning is being practiced with utmost caution by confirming that students, faculty, and staff participate in small, in-person classes, activities, and events that allow individuals to remain spaced at least 6 feet apart (e.g., lecture room with individual seating spaced 6 feet apart). Alternating schedules, and staggered schedules in classes, residence halls, dining areas, and recreational areas on campus to create small groups of students and minimize their contact with others is being strictly monitored.
