Schools And Colleges across India are Still Not Allowed to Open amid Lockdown, Clarifies Centre
No decision has been taken on opening of schools and colleges and all education institutions across the country are still prohibited to open, the Union Home Ministry said on Tuesday night.
The statement by the home ministry spokesperson came after a section of media reported that the ministry has given permission to all states to open schools.
"No such decision taken by MHA. All Educational institutions are still prohibited to open, throughout the country (sic)," the spokesperson tweeted.
All educational institutions have been shut since mid-March, some of them from March 25 when the nationwide lockdown started to contain the spread of coronavirus pandemic.
