Following the Meghalaya government's nod to online classes, teachers and also students from Classes-IX to XII as well as those pursuing the under-graduate courses are facing a taxing time in the rural areas across the State. As part of the initiative to resume the academic session, the Government has issued a notification stating that the 'online classes' can be started, but the real sufferers are the less-privileged ones and also the villagers as they lack proper mobile services network.
The worst-hit are the students from villages located in East Garo Hills, South Garo Hills, West Khasi Hills and South West Khasi Hills. Moreover, the network is either erratic or unavailable. "Due to the network problem, I have to climb up to a hillock to get a network and listen to the lecture online," stated a science student of a city college from Nongnam Village of South West Khasi Hills.
