Bangalore, 1 April 2020 – Educators and students around the world are feeling the extraordinary ripple effect of the COVID-19 as schools and colleges close down amid the public health emergency. To help and ensure continuity in education, JD Institute of Fashion Technology is taking all the necessary measures to provide e-learning and digital training to its postgraduate and undergraduate students.
