All private and government schools in Delhi will remain closed for students till 31 October, said Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Sunday, 4 October.

The announcement puts to rest the speculation about reopening of the schools in a staggered manner. In the latest Unlock 5 guidelines, the central government had allowed states and Union territory governments to decide on reopening of schools and educational institutes after 15 October.

The Centre had also said that governments reopening schools should ensure that attendance is not forced on students and that students should be allowed to attend schools on a voluntary basis, only with the consent of parents.
