Abstract: The COVID - 19 pandemic has led to significant changes in daily routines and lifestyles worldwide and mental health issues appeared as one of the consequences of it. This study aimed to assess the presence of several psycho - physiological parameters among young college - going undergraduate and postgraduate students due to the lockdown situation. Besides these, the evaluation of autonomous learning capacity as a positive effect of lockdown was also an important aspect of this work. Cross - sectional data were collected through Google - based questionnaires from different college and university students in West Bengal, India from late May to 1st week of July 2021. A total of 315 complete responses were obtained. Among them, 11.42% of students were under moderate depressive conditions, while 27% were suffering from moderate anxiety.
