In India, the government as a part of the nationwide lockdown has closed all educational institutions, as a result, school to postgraduate students are affected. This disruption during the middle of the academic semester for higher education students forced them to adopt online classes to complete their syllabi. This study examined the challenges and constraints faced by higher education students during online classes. The results of the study found that respondents did not find online classes effective, they faced technical issues and constraints, including internet connectivity, voice quality and lack of interaction. Respondents usually have access to limited data plans, many of them sharing the same network with family members working from home. However, online education appears to be need of the hour for educational institutes, to retain their connect with the students and ensure continuous learning though technical challenges may persist for a while.
