DDMA held a meeting with the expert committee to take a significant decision on Delhi school reopening for the junior classes.

Earlier, the panel had recommended phase-wise reopening of schools in the national capital. As per the earlier suggestions, the schools were asked to reopen classes for students of 6 to 8 standard from September 8.

Meanwhile, several students have been asking the Delhi government to allow the resumption of offline classes for the students of classes 6 to 8.

On September 1, Delhi had reopened colleges, coaching institutes, and schools for higher class students. However, the schools witnessed thin attendance on day one.

For junior and primary classes, the schools have been closed since March 2020 when the coronavirus pandemic wreaked havoc in the country and induced a strict lockdown.

The students, teachers and non-teaching staff living in Covid containment zones would not attend offline classes. Likewise, the students have been asked to submit a no-objection certificate to attend offline classes.
