Guwahati News Desk: The Deputy Chief Minister of Delhi, Manish Sisodia, announced on Saturday that schools in the national capital will reopen for all the classes from November 29.
In addition, the news was shared by Sisodia via a tweet, which contained an official order issued by the additional director of education Rita Sharma.
The order stated that the department of environment and forest has allowed the reopening of schools in Delhi.
Moreover, the schools in Delhi have been largely closed due to COVID-19 induced lockdown since March last year.
However, several institutes were reopened for offline classes briefly this year but had to be shut down due to the rising pollution levels. Thus, earlier this month considering the air emergency due to rising levels of pollution, all schools and colleges were made to remain closed in the national capital until further notice.
Meanwhile, earlier this week the Environment Minister of Delhi Gopal Rai had informed hat schools and other education institutes will be reopened in a phased manner as Air Quality Index (AQI) started to improve in the national capital.
