With the preventive measures as the only weapon, India has displayed a great spirit in fighting against Coronavirus. Timely actions ensured we do not have a rapid spread.
Chitkara University joins the nation's cause by spreading awareness, keeping the campuses clean and by practising social distancing.

"We are going through the toughest part that our generation has not witnessed earlier. We need to stand united and work hard towards restoring things to normal. The governments are doing their role to perfection. I would like to thank all the Chitkara University staff for rising to the occasion and contributing to the nation's cause. All of us at Chitkara University hope the situation comes to control at the earliest across the country", said Ashok Chitkara, Chancellor at Chitkara University.
