Bengaluru: Stringent action will be taken against schools that are running offline classes for standard 1 to 5, in violation of the government’s COVID guidelines warned Karnataka Primary and Secondary Education Minister S. Suresh Kumar

His warning comes after the state government issued a notification that does not grant permission to schools for conducting physical classes for standards 1 to 5 in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

With the permission of the state Covid-19 Technical Advisory Committee of the Department of Health and Family Welfare, the Department of Primary and Secondary Education has been permitted to start classes beyond the 6th standard.

However, various media reports stated that some private schools across the state are conducting classes from 1st to 5th standard.

Kumar has instructed public education department officials to take action against such schools.

Kumar has also instructed department officials and superintendents of the department to immediately issue a circular on the creation of taluka-level inspection teams and prosecute unauthorized schools/institutes which are conducting classes for 1st to 5th standard.

Meanwhile, Karnataka is among the eight states showing a rising trajectory of daily new cases, said the Union Health Ministry on Monday.

As per the ministry, Karnataka reported 934 new COVID-19 cases in the last 24 hours.
