Covid-19: Indian students relieved as China says it will allow 'some' of them to return

Over 23,000 Indian students, mostly studying medicine in Chinese colleges, are stuck in India after they returned home due the Covid-19 pandemic

Indian students enrolled in Chinese universities heaved a sigh of relief with China announcing plans to allow the return of "some" of them who have been stranded in India for over two years following the visa and flight restrictions imposed by Beijing due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Following the Chinese announcement, the Indian Embassy in Beijing sought the details of the students intending to return.

According to earlier reports, over 23,000 Indian students, mostly studying medicine in Chinese colleges, are stuck in India after they returned home as the coronavirus pandemic broke out in the central Chinese city of Wuhan in December 2019.

They could not return to China due to the restrictions imposed by the Chinese government to arrest the spread of the contagion.

Since then, they made desperate attempts to return to China to re-join their classes but had to confine to online classes as Beijing cancelled all flights and visas for Indians.

The University Grants Commission had earlier warned Indian students that any degree done from Chinese universities only through online mode without prior approval won't be recognised.
