Jamshedpur : In view of paramilitary forces taking control of the Jamshedpur Co-operative College, the administrative office of the Jamshedpur Co-operative College has shifted to another place about 800 ft from the college campus.

Other colleges will continue their classes but about 8000 students and teachers of Jamshedpur Co-operative College will have to sacrifice their holidays to complete their syllabus. The principal of the college, R.K. Das said that they are planning to conduct some classes at the bunglow where they have shifted but not all can be accommodated.
The college is however closed and students and teachers have no way out other than waiting for the college to re-open next year. The college also could not organise the mock test by the Jharkhand Academic Council for intermediate students as there was no space and they have had already shifted to the temporary office by the time it started last month.
The Jamshedpur Co-operative which serves as the strong room is already closed from Nov 15. The office has shifted about 500 mts from the college campus and students and teachers hardly come to college. For Jamshedpur Co-operative College, this will continue till Dec 23, the day of counting.
Nearly 7000 students of Jamshedpur Co-operative College ( JCC), arguably one of the oldest colleges of the city, are facing trouble with the announcement of Assembly elections as classes have taken a back seat.
