Meanwhile, the academy has decided to conduct all activities, including training, online till the December 3. The protocols relating to social distancing, frequent hand washing and wearing of masks are being strictly enforced.

Food and other necessities are being delivered to the officer trainees in their hostels by staff who are equipped adequately in protective gear, the ministry added.
