The Press Information Office (PIB) said on Sunday that a false notice stating that schools and universities will remain closed until November 30, 2020 is circulating on social media. PIB urged people to beware of this false advertisement claiming to be from the Ministry of the Interior (MHA).

PIB has tweeted a fact check on the matter on its official Twitter account.

“An order holder claims that all schools will be closed until November 30. #PIBFactCheck – This title is DECEPTIVE. The decision on the opening of educational institutions is left in the hands of the states / UT according to the September order of the MHA, which is valid until November 2020, ”the tweet reads.

Based on the MHA Guidelines, the Union Territories and the state will decide when to reopen schools and colleges and when physical classes can begin.
