However, physical attendance is not compulsory, with students to attend only with the consent of the parents.

"In order to conduct activities pertaining to pre-board preparation and practical work, the government and government-aided/unaided schools may call students of Class 10 and 12 only to school from 18 January. The child should be called to school only with the consent of parents," the Delhi government said.

"While the records of children coming to school be maintained, the same should not be used for attendance purpose as sending the child to school is completely optional for parents," it added.
