“NCERT has come out with revised activities calender for classes 1-8, CBSE is assessing the situation and loss of time to rationalise syllabus for classes 9-12 and will inform in due course of time,” informed CBSE spokesperson Rama Sharma.
All school, colleges, educational institutions are shut due to lockdown.
Children are studying online during this time.
Prime Minister Modi had urged people to follow lockdown measures until May 3.
“Friends, keeping all the suggestions in mind, it has been decided that the lockdown in India will have to be extended till 3rd May. That means until 3rd May, each and every one of us, will have to remain in the lockdown. During this time, we must continue maintaining discipline in the way we have been doing till now,” he said during his address to the nation at 10 am.
“Therefore, we have to be very vigilant about hot-spots. We will have to keep a close and strict watch on the places which run the risk of becoming hot-spots. The creation of new hot-spots will further challenge our hard work and penance. Hence, let us extend the strictness and austerity in the fight against Corona for the upcoming one week,” he added.
