In view of the rather grave situation that exist in the country due to COVID 19, as a part of the efforts to avoid its spreading, it has been decided that we will not run the Summer Internship Programme this year. This will certainly reduce travel between different cities/towns in the country and contribute to the fight against it.
We have had a number of good applicants, and we were eagerly looking forward to having them with us. The cancellation of the programme is certainly a disappointment to us, and I believe, to the applicants as well. However, under the present circumstances, we are left with no other choice. We are sorry about the inconvenience caused to the applicants.
