The Education Minister Gurmeet Singh Meet Hayer said that due to the offline classes not being held owing to the Covid-19 pandemic during the last 2 years, the students' studies had been adversely affected. Hence, it was the demand of the parents as well as the students to schedule summer holidays as before and desist from the online classes. He also said that from 15th till 31st May, 2022 the primary school timings would be from 7 AM to 11 AM while the Middle/High/Senior Secondary schools would be open from 7 AM till 12:30 PM.
