There was news surfaced “schools will remain shut across the country till November 30” - Press Information Bureau (PIB) on Sunday said that the order is fake.
The fake notice stating schools will remain close across the country till November 30, attributed to the Home Ministry, is doing rounds on social media. "In exercise of the powers conferred under Section 10(2)(1) of the Disaster Management Act, 2005, the undersigned hereby directs the guidelines for reopening issued by Ministry of Home Affairs' orders of even number dated 30.09.2020 will remain in force till 30.11.2020,' a news channel quoted the fake order as saying.
Reacting to this viral news, Press Information Bureau said, "A headline of order claims that all schools to remain closed till 30th November PIB Fact Check: This Headline is MISLEADING. The decision on the opening of educational institutions is left to States/UTs as per MHA's September order, which is valid till November 2020."
