The address will be streamlined live on the university website, YouTube channel and Facebook page for the audience at Crawford Hall in the administrative block.

"The ceremony will also be screened on Digital Signages at senate bhavan, vijnana bhavan and the centenary hall in the Manasa Gangothri campus," noted the official.

The Crawford Hall premises has been sanitised ahead of the event and seating arrangements have been made for only 100 dignitaries, including 30 gold medal winners in view of the Covid-induced restrictions on large public gatherings to contain the pandemic spread.
