In the first phase of unlocking of schools, classes were reopened for students of grades 11th and 12th from July 26 with a 50% capacity. In the schools which have a lower seating capacity, classes were organised in small groups once a week, after parents granted mandatory written permission.
The second phase of the unlock happened from September 1, which permitted students from 6th to 12th to attend regular classes at school with a 50% capacity.
