The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) announced the unlock 3.0 guidelines recently and allowed yoga institutes and gymnasiums to operate. In Maharashtra, the state government allowed shopping malls and market complexes to operate under ‘Mission Begin Again’. 

However, the lockdown was extended till August 31 midnight and public transport, educational institutes including schools and colleges are closed. Now, it is being said that the central government might take a decision on reopening schools in the country before September 5 which is celebrated as the Teachers’ Day. 

Due to the coronavirus outbreak, the schools and colleges have remained shut for over five months which has adversely affected the students across the country. Although online sessions are being organised for students to continue their education, the parents and several organisations have objected to no concession in the tuition fee. 

The central government is likely to announce a decision on reopening schools on September 1. The next phase of unlocking will commence in the month of September and the central government will issue guidelines by the end of August. While the central government will give the broad guidelines and SOPs for reopening schools, the final decision to reopen schools and colleges will remain with the state governments. 

According to sources, there is no confirmation on whether the schools will be allowed to open after the third phase of unlocking or not. However, it is being said that the government is preparing guidelines and the decision will be announced after taking stock of the situation.

If the schools reopen, it will be done in a staggered manner and the importance to practise social distancing will be ensured. The sources have informed that the government is likely to start classes for 10th and 12th standard.
