COVID-19: No timeline yet on reopening of schools, possibility of classes for senior students being explored

No deadline has yet been set by the Ministry of Education for the re-opening of schools because, according to reports, the majority of states are not in support of it in the light of the rise in COVID-19 incidents.

Although the government is contemplating the prospect of beginning a class for senior students at the end of September or October, no final decision has been made in this regard.

Universities and colleges throughout the country have been suspended since March 16, when the Center declared the closure of the nation-wide classroom shut down as part of efforts to curb the outbreak of COVID-19.

A national lockdown was declared on 24 March, which fell into force the next day and halted economic operations.

Although the government has increasingly relaxed controls, schools and colleges remain closed.
