COVID-19 lockdown: IIT Madras spreads students across three hostels after backlash
| Thursday | 26th March, 2020
In a fresh email communication on Thursday, accessed by The New Indian Express, the Dean Students said Bhadra, Cauvery and Brahmaputra have been identified as men's hostels and Sabarmati for women.
"We have made sure the number of residents would be far less than half the capacity of the hostels," the Dean said.
The development comes after The New Indian Express highlighted the plight of the students who were forced to relocate to Bhadra hostel.

"We are trying our best but we need your (students) cooperation and support in these difficult times.
