The NCERT was tasked by the Union Ministry of Human Resource Development to advise on the criteria for reopening the school, and it has caused a stir in the media as parents became concerned about the reopening of the school due to the coronavirus epidemic. The NCERT was later told that if the nationwide lockout was lifted, the government should temporarily allow secondary and higher secondary students to return to the classroom from mid-July.
It has recently been reported that classes for 8th to 12th grade students may start after the summer holidays in the areas belonging to the green and orange zone districts.
Recent claims that the MHA has allowed all states to open schools. Claims were leaked on Twitter by an MHA spokesman that no such decision had been made by the MHA. All educational institutions are still banned from opening all over the country.
Twitter responded to the tweet by claiming that MHA-affiliated schools had agreed to reopen. There were many users who said that 90% of people who watch news channels and channels that have published this news should be dealt with severely. There were many users who tagged the Press Information Bureau and demanded legal action against fake news peddlers.
