This was stated byAKTUvice-chancellor Vinay Kumar Pathak, who completed five years in the office recently. Pathak said the university has already launched a mobile van for recording lectures of academicians.

The van was donated to the varsity by BJP Rajya Sabha member Sudhanshu Trivedi.

On the online placement of students, the VC said, "At a time when the job market is slow and companies are avoiding physical interaction, the online placement platform would be of great use to both students and companies."

During the pandemic, the university facilitated online learning through a learning management system in more than 750 affiliated institutions, said Pathak, who is credited to becoming a university VC in Kota at just 39 years of age.
