UGC Asks Institutions To Put UP Banners Thanking PM Modi For Free Vaccination

After PM Modi announced the revised guidelines for the vaccination drive earlier this month, they came into effect on Monday.

All universities, colleges and technical institutions have been asked by the University Grants Commission (UGC) to put up banners thanking Prime Minister Modi for “starting free vaccination for 18 years and above age group”, Hindustan Times reported, quoting sources.

After PM Modi announced the revised guidelines for the vaccination drive earlier this month, they came into effect on Monday. Those aged 18 and above are eligible for free vaccination under these guidelines.

UGC Secretary Rajnish Jain, in a WhatsApp message sent to various university officials Sunday, also asked the institutions to share the banners on their social media pages.

“The Government of India is starting free vaccination for 18 years and above age group from tomorrow–21st June, 2021. In this regard, universities and colleges are requested to kindly display these hoardings and banners in their institutions.

“The approved design (creatives) of hoardings and banners in Hindi and English, as provided by the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, are attached for your ready reference,” reads Jain’s purported text message, said Hindustan Times report.
