Re-opening of schools, colleges unlikely from September 1



New Delhi: Schools and colleges may not reopen anytime soon. However, government is likely to allow resumption of Metro train services in the ‘Unlock 4’ phase begining September 1.

According to Press Trust of India, there will be no reopening of schools and colleges immediately, but deliberations are underway on whether to allow reopening of higher educational institutions such as universities, IITs and IIMs and no decision has been taken on the matter yet.

There is almost no possibility of allowing cinema halls to reopen from September 1 as it will not be commercially viable for film-makers or cinema hall owners to operate following social distancing norm, said an official.

The state governments will take a final call on additional activities that should continue to remain prohibited during the ‘Unlock 4’, the official added.
