  • "We have devised a standard operating procedure whereby we will suggest to the ministry to start classes on alternate days for different standards. However, classes can start from Class 6 onwards.
  • Opening of classes in a graded manner, social distancing will be ensured. Online classes in villages are not possible. So in a week, every standard between 6th to 12th will have at least two days of schooling,"
