After a month-long closure, the National Institute of Technology (NIT Srinagar) will reopen on Tuesday, October 15, 2019. “NIT Srinagar will reopen on 15th October! @HRDMinistry @nitsriofficial Wishing all the best for a smooth academic session ahead,” tweeted HRD secretary R. Subrahmanyam.
The institute was closed last month following turmoil in the state after the Centre revoked Jammu and Kashmir’s special status by diluting Article 370 of the Indian Constitution.
