Although the duration of Unlock-1 has been stated from June 1 to June 30, but its real start will be from June 8, when all the malls, hotels, restaurants and other services related to it will start along with religious places. For this, the Ministry of Health will issue a separate SOP but all the shops outside the mall will open from June 1. The government will open schools, colleges, coaching and other educational institutions in the second phase. The Home Ministry has set a time of July for this, but before this the state governments have been asked to consult the educational institutions as well as parents and other parties.
