As Covid cases around the whole country are decreasing and schools are slowly reopening, the Delhi Disaster Management Authority (DDMA) decided to discontinue online classes for students in Delhi schools from April 1. The schools will only conduct physical classes for all students. Schools across Delhi reopened for senior students after more than a month on February 8, but the continuation of the ‘hybrid mode’ means that bus services and mid-day meals are not yet back.

Dismissing a plea to cancel board examinations for classes 10 and 12 via physical mode, the Supreme Court said Wednesday that such petitions only give “false hopes” to students preparing for exams and create “more confusion”. Justice Maheshwari too said, “this creates false hope and confusion”. The bench stopped short of imposing any cost on the petitioners.

Several state boards such as Jharkhand (JAC), Himachal Pradesh (HPBOSE), Gujarat (GSHSEB) have issued notifications about exams, admit cards and offline conduct. The HSC exams in the Maharashtra board (MSBSHSE) have also been postponed after question papers were destroyed in a fire when the truck transporting the documents caught fire.

Meanwhile, after Russian President Vladimir Putin announced the start of a “special military operation” against Ukraine on Thursday morning, thousands of international students including Indians are stranded in the eastern European country as it closed its airspace for civilian flights because of high risk to safety. Indian students, stuck in Ukraine, have been hiding for safety in underground bunkers in the basements of apartments, metro stations and university hostels. Some students have, now, also been brought back to India under Operation Ganga.
