Advisory for users on Corona Virus

Dear Campus residents,

We are in a lockdown situation till Apr 14, and the situation beyond also looks uncertain (Virus only knows when normalcy will return!). In an emergency meeting of the Deans and some of the other fundtionaries of the Institute, the following decisions have been taken for managing the day-to-day activities of the campus. These arrangements are based on the situation prevailing today, and may change depending on how the situation evolves. We shall keep you updated. 

All are requested to note and co-operate.

1. Supplies of essential goods (vegetables, groceries, etc): Please plan to order these in. Some shops in the Powai area seem to be taking orders for delivery, and other e-tailers are also coming on line. The delivery agents may be stopped at the Gate and you may get a call requesting for authentication by the security. Based on your authentication, the delivery agent will be allowed to deliver the things you have ordered, to your home. If there is no payment to be made to the delivery agent and if it is convenient for you to collect the materials at the gate itself without the delivery agent having to come inside, please advise the security accordingly and collect your materials at the gate. 

2.  The essential services in the Y-point market are remaining open. Please make sure to avoid crowding when you visit these shops. The security section has made markings at 3 ft intervals near the shops for maintaining adequate person-to-person separation.

3.  The vegetable market on Tuesdays and Fridays at the Staff canteen will continue to function. The same advisory on maintaining inter-person distance applies. We are trying to make similar arrangements for other supplies, and you will be informed in due course about the success of such attempts.

4. As already advised, please discontinue your domestic help, cook etc (especially if coming from off campus, or if going off campus to work in places outside) for this period by giving a kind of paid leave. Caregivers coming for providing medical care to the elderly are exempted. The Security section will provide special passes for them, on your recommendation.

5. Please do not encourage social visits during this period. Also avoid congregating in the common areas of your buildings in the evening hours. Children have to be made aware of the seiousness of the situation and prevented from gathering for games or other diversions during this period.
