The assurance from the Chief Minister came after a Kashmiri student tweeted that he was asked to pay a fine or miss exams and that Universities across Punjab, Chandigarh, Uttrakhand are asking Kashmiri students to pay fine because of not submitting their assignments on time and falling short of attendance. 

The lockdown was imposed on Jammu and Kashmir and political leaders were arrested as the Government tabled the Bill to revoke Article 370 and make Jammu and Kashmir a Union Territory. Over time, restrictions in the state have been lifted and recently, a few political leaders have also been released. The government has been trying to restore normalcy in Srinagar, which is the most affected region.
