Female students at Gauhati University and its affiliate colleges will be entitled to take menstrual leave from now on.
The Vice Chancellor of Gauhati University has allowed a relaxation of 2 per cent for female students as ‘menstrual leave’ in minimum class attendance for all departments of Gauhati University as well as for the affiliated colleges, an official notification from the university said.
This will come into immediate effect.
This comes after directives sent out by the Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Women and Child Development earlier this year.
With the leave provisions that are eligible for women students, a minimum class attendance of 73 per cent will be needed to sit in the semester examinations.

This policy by Gauhati University will help in recognising and addressing the unique challenges faced by female students during their menstrual cycles.
Established in 1948, Gauhati University is one of the premier institutions of higher education in the northeast India region and one of the most sought-after postgraduate institutions
