Centre has issued modified guidelines on the reopening of educational institutions in different parts of the country. In its new guidelines, Education Ministry has allowed states to decide if parental consent is needed by school students to attend physical classes after Covid -19 lockdown. It said, State and UT governments may decide at their level whether their schools are required to take the consent of the parents of the students attending the physical classes. The Ministry said, specific marking may be made with sufficient distance to manage the queue and ensure physical distancing in the school premises.
