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.

The revised guidelines for reopening of educational institutions also emphasise on the identification of students who might be facing more difficulties while transitioning to offline lectures. For this, Centre has advised states and UTs to devise ways of additional intervention to help these students.
